|IcarusLSC||Yup, I understand I just wasn't sure if there was adjusment in the direction I wanted with this style hinges on the Jeep|

Understand the I can help you with the adjustment of the doors, but I can't guarantee that it will fix your leak.
If your door is overflush to the windshield, you can loosen up the top hinge to tub bolts and push the top of the door in slightly. If it is overflush to the fender only, you can loosen the bolts that hold the bottom hinge to the tub and only push the bottom half of the door inward. Does that make sense? Do you understand what I mean when I say hinge to tub or hinge to door?
Not trying to sound like a jerk, just want to make sure you understand.

|IcarusLSC||Yes, sorry, I didn't explain it very well (wrong words.) It is out all along the front leading edge of the door.|

To move the door inward you want to loosen up the bolts that that hold the hinge to the body. Then move the hinges inward very, very little. A millimeter will make a big difference.
Is the door overflush all the way from the fender to the top of the windshield or only in one spot?

|IcarusLSC||I don't want to move it forward. I want to move it closer to the tub as the seals leak and they don't sit flush with the panels around the door, the door sticks out slightly. I figured it would be an easier way to try and fix the leak before buying new seals...|

I don't recommend doing it though. Unless you know how to adjust a door it's possible to really mess it up. You're also exposing unpainted metal that is under the hinge to the elements. Why do you want to move your door forward?

|IcarusLSC||I need to push it in towards the tub, can that be done?|

|ArcherAce||You would have to loosen the bolts up that hold the hinge to the door and push the door forward, icarus.|

|IcarusLSC||Is there shims/adjusments to make the door go in towards the tub slightly more along the hinge edge?|

Assuming that you have full doors this should help...
