2010 Air leak in Soft top

As I reach speeds of 50mph my soft top makes a really loud noise (in the spot right near where it connects to the latch on the passenger side). This just started happening after I put my top down the last time. Since then I have taken it off and readjusted it hoping that I could fix the problem. I also noticed a tiny mark/slight tear on the soft top that doesnt appear to be all the way through as it is not leaking water. It is about 1 mm wide and a half inch long. Is this the reason? Any suggestions?

Is there a way to patch a small tear like that?

I heard the same extra wind noise and it ended up being the weather stripping around the passenger door was not seated.

I priced the front door weather stripping the other day cause mine is shot, 80 for the left and 85 for the right
There are very few vehicles that can be defined as "made for offroad". Unfortunately, the Wrangler can definitely be defined as "made for offroad" by its inability to handle well on road
