Are you sure it's the door seals. FSJ's are prone to water coming in around the door glass, fresh air vents and some other not so obvious places.

are the door drains blocked up with crud? IIRC there are 3 or 4 of them, also be sure to have the plastic barrier between the door and the cardboard door panel sealed properly

If the lower part of the door fits right so it's even with the body but the upper window frame isn't sealing it's time for some tweaking.

Can't remember if you're supposed to loosen the screws below the welds for this. I'll try and check the book.
