We changed the rear doors to suicide on a 99 Tahoe. I have a large bundle of wires that go from the cab to the inside of the door. I need some sort of rubber boot to house the wires and keep the elements out of the vehicle. Does anyone have any suggestions on who would fabricate something like this?? Or any ideas on how to fabricate something myself. Any input would be welcome.

You cold always purchase heat shrink wrapping. All wires would be securely held together and able to be move wherever.
Look twice, think thrice, 1 splice/ 1 slice!
This is a phrase i came up with and something i will now live by.

If i use heat shrink it will seal the wires in but it still wont keep the elements out of the truck cause there are holes in the door sill where the wire penetrates the door and the truck. Mainly the truck cause the door penetration is on the bottom side of the door.

I forgot where i found it one time but do search on google for stainless door boots, they basically are nice braided stainless steel lines that screw into the door from the insides and move with the door i think it would be a nice touch.  The hot rod guys usually use them when adding power windows and such into cars that never had boots.

i also don't remember where i saw this, but someone out there makes a system that gets rid of the wiring totally. it has connections that make contact when the door is closed only so when you open it up there are no wires, (of course nothing in the door works when its open either!!)

Does your tahoe have barn doors or a tailgate? If you have barn doors you should have the connectors that d_rock_81 is talking about. That is what you should look for, theyre spring loaded metal pins and stay in contact when the door is shut but not when it's open.
