Was this TJ ever in an accident, even very minor, where either bumpers were hit? Mine (a 2003 Sport) was, and the frame was just slightly tweaked. It runs true, looks straight, and the issue has never caused enough of a headache for either me or the previous owner to have it fixed.
That said, the one thing where this is noticeable is that my left door does not close 100% along the top edge and the right one sits overly deep into the door surround. It is very minor, and neither door leaked. The left one had a lot of wind noise, though, and the rubber gasket on the right one was squashed flat.
I ended up replacing the door gaskets with new, and on the left side I added some extra at the top and on the right I trimmed it a little and put on some new adhesive in that spot.
If yours was tweaked a tiny bit this could account for leaks front and rear on the same side so that stuff no longer lines up perfectly anymore. Either way, it looks like you can fix it yourself inexpensively through some experimentation and general fiddling about.
I hope you get this sorted soon. Good luck!
