Jim, have you inspected the hinges? If they're badly worn, that would explain the door being too low. If you can lift the door without loosening the bolts, then that would indicate worn hinges.

Another telltale sign the cowl has issues, the fresh air door doesn't sit in the opening properly. It would be interesting to see how the hood fits at that section as well.

Where exactly are you placing the 2x4 and which issue will it correct? I have a door with the lower third of the rear edge protruding above the door sill. The top of the door is fine, but the bottom of the door doesn’t sit perfectly flush

Top of the door for repositioning the bottom of the door. Much harder to do. Window down. Again, don’t be overly aggressive.
