Question on doors

Hey guys, does anyone have the same problem I do. On the bottom of the doors that rubber seal, is their any way that I can tighten up the seal against the inside of the cab? Im getting gravel and a little mud in between the doors. I know I did with my 06 but I thought I would see if anyone had any ideas on sealing it up a little better. I have like a 1//16" gap in between where it meets when the door is closed right now. On my other one, I just made sure to hit the inside with the pressure washer every time I went to wash my truck. Is that pretty much the only thing a person can do?

Thanks guys! btw, these trucks are really sweet! only had it for a week and I love the thing

you take 1/4" (i believe) clear tubing from lowes and feed through the hole in the rubber weather stripping... It will make a huge difference...

there are TWO seals on the door...
one that goes around the ENTIRE LENGTH of the door (top, bottom & sides)
there is another SMALL length of (inverted V) that provides a WEAK mud barrier.

Aaron has described the door seal mod as well as anyone can.

Yeah, I remember hearing about the tubing idea. I'll have to try it. If not, I always get inside the doors at the car wash.
