Soft doors fitting problem

Order a set of Bestop upper and lower soft doors for the summertime here in NC.

Problem is the upper dont seem to seal very well against the frame of the Jeep.

This is very noticeable travelling around 50 mph or faster. They tend to flap at the top of the soft door.

Is there if any fix to solve this ?

This will sound lame, but.......... they all do that. I believe Tiny came up with a strap of some type to reduce it. Mine do it with the solid half doors, mainly in a cross wind though.

Ya most flap around some worse then others
I had a cj5 that I drove cross country
soft top and doors hit a 5 hour thunder boomer
40mph-70 gusts cross winds and 2inch hour rain
my tires kicked inso much water in the bottom of soft doors
I was soaked and very tired oh ya it was also like 35

Now it a hard top or no top

that's what I was afraid of guys.

My passenger side flaps like hell which is the wifey's side if we are together so I need to come up with some kind of solution.

What type of strap has been engineered to help solve this problem? Please include the link if anyone has it.

Windows. You know, the things you remove with a brick?

If you bend them in so there's a slight twist it keeps it from the flutter.
