wind and road noise mod

Got this fix from another super duty site.Bought 50 feet of 3/8" OD latex tubing from www.smallparts.com $16.65 per 25 feet.Fish tubing through your weather stripping around your door sills.Makes the door close a little snugger but will seal door just enough to make a tight seal.I have a 2000 F250 super cab

Welcome to FordTough. That sounds like it might be a great little fix. Maybe even for 1/2 back doors on super cab.

I did my truck several years ago. I did both the back and front seals, and between the front and back doors. At the time the hose of choice was plain 3/8 OD clear plastic. It works fine for me, but I could see trouble in colder climes. Probably the easiest way is to take off the weather stripping and lay it out straight. A fish would work best, but talc or WD40 also will work. There are some plugs near the bottom of the weather stripping that have to be removed as well. I believe the end result is worth the effort.

Sounds like a good trick!

I've been surprised at how noisy my doors are since the day I bought the truck...
