There are really only 4 likely things it could be. The switch, the window motor, the relay, or a fuse.
Since the relay is clicking, then it's probably not the fuse. And since the relay is clicking, it's probably not the relay either. Relays don't go bad too often. Which leaves only the switch and the motor. You can unplug the switch and energize the motor wires directly with a drill battery to determine if the switch or the motor is the problem. Hope this info helps and that you get it fixed man.

Would both motors die at the same time, doubtful.

It's not unheard of. But unlikely...

There could be another possibility. If the motor design is similar to my 92 Explorer it could be the gears of each motor. If the design is the same, there are 3 round disks in the gear housing which provide some slippage if something gets stuck when the window goes up. It's all plastic and mine was utterly destroyed by age (the gearing and plugs). The plugs are replaceable, but I replaced everything (motor and regulator) due to age and I didn't want to take things apart again. Just a thought.

If you are looking for help let me know. I've been through some automagic window problems lately.
