How to stop wind noise

Any tricks out there to stop the wind noise at about 50 MPH. Seems to be coming in from top of WS and door corners, don't want to tape across the seem any ideas? Jeep has a hard top 1999 Wrangler Sahara.

You can get a seal that helps the hardtop seal better. I think quadratec might have it but I'd have to search.

The hardtop could be out of alignment or not tight enough against the windsheild header, which I had to fix on mine the other day and solved my extra wind noise issue. Loosen the hardtop bolts all around, unclamp the windshield mounts, reclamp the windshield mounts, then tighten down the hardtop bolts.

Move it around to get the fit right but make sure the doors are shut when you do these steps otherwise it can be too far forward on one side or the other.

And not everyone has the same post per page setting so just linking to a page doesn't work well.
