Tuck into the U channel
Keep pulling from the rear, keeping that fabric tight in the channel.
Body channel and done.
A lot of folks don't even know of the channel in the door surrounds and have the same issues.

Open the door- and tuck the leading edge down into the channel on the door surround - so that one seam is showing when the door closes. Once you have that all tight, the rear window should look like it's wrapped around the surround and into the car when the door is closed-
From there, zip the window in.
Then start at the back and attach the bottom of the window moving forward to the door. Once that's done, velcro everything up.
That's how i do mine - super tight and right.
^Right. You're installing them incorrectly. When done correctly, nothing flaps in the breeze.
My write-up from another thread:
(1) With top otherwise up and done, hang a window using the Velcro.
(2) Zip the zipper NO MORE than 6". Just get it started.
(3) Fold the part that you're currently seeing flap in the breeze in toward the plastic door surround behind it, tucking the hard plastic that's embedded in the window fabric into the channel in the door surround. It folds over in a "u" shape. This is the step you're presently missing.
(4) Zip the zipper the rest of the way.
(5) Stretch and leverage the plastic strip on the bottom of the window into the channel on the jeep's body. You may need to go back to step 3 and retuck a bit to make sure it's still in tight after doing this.
(6) Fix the Velcro and admire handiwork.
The window will be very tight. Nothing flaps in the breeze.
In essence, the window is secured on the top and rear by the zipper, and on the bottom and front by attached/embedded plastic that's folded into a channel on the jeep/door surround. You're missing the step to secure the front.
