JK half door window rattle fix

half door rattles at the arm rest. The fabric top waves at about 60 mph and taps against the window frame. Thought someone might have come up with a solution to this problem. Was thinking about a piece of door seal but can't find the correct configuration.

Mine does the same, and it can get annoying, but I don't drive highway much, so I have just ignored it for the time being. I'm sure it can be mostly cured without much effort, I just haven't tried. I'll keep an eye on this thread to see what others come up with.

Half doors don't have OEM electric door locks.

Don't think it has alarm system. It door skin definitely has a wind flap on the door skin.

mine are OEM you need to go buy the wire harness from mopar and the door locks. this kit allows the alarm to sound when some one opens the doors.

do you have an automatic trans. Is the wiring in place to hook up to. Mopar doesn't have a kit for standard trans.
