Wind noise

My Ranger has a lot of wind noise from the driver's door on the highway. I looked at the door seal and the door today. I noticed that the driver's door isn't as close to the cab as the passenger's door. Is there a way to adjust the door to bring it closer to the body when it is closed? Also the seal appears to be seperating from the cab on the driver's side in a 4 inch section. What kind of glue can I use to reattach it?

From the Ford manual:

Weatherstrip Adhesive E8AZ-19552-A or equivalent meeting Ford specification ESB-M2G176-A is designed to hold weatherstripping to the body.

You can adjust the U-latch on the doorframe (not the door itself) to make the door seal /close more tightly.

If it only has a gap at the top of the door, put the window down all the way. Sit in the seat with the door ajar, with you facing out the door. Grab the top of the door, put your knees on the door for leverage, and PULL the top of the door toward you.

Do this in increments, checking often. It takes quite a bit of strength, it being made of steel and all.

If you have to adjust the door by bending the door like Earl suggested (his method does work), can I suggest a different method. If the top of the door needs to be bent in, towards the body, put a rubber hammer in the bottom corner between the door and the body and push the top of the door inwards, from the outside. Like Earl says, do in increments, checking after each attempt.

I need to tell my dad to try this, a deer hit him on the drivers door and now the edge of the door is farther away at the top then the bottom and it looks bad.

And yes the deer hit him, then rolled down the side of the truck.
