Anyone had experience with these door seals??

Looking to buy these to replace the ones on my '79. Has anyone tried them? They are always on EBAY for sale.

That's funny I bought them to. Mine close just fine. You may have to make a small adjustment to the door striker or even the hinge side. I believe that these and TGW's are about the same and probably thicker than the original ones.

po replaced the driver side front on mine with some universal looking seal, it doesnt have the miters in the corners, no idea where it came from. that door doesnt want to close. you cant really adjust the door to make up for it, the door wont line up. you can see its too thick, it actually pushes the front edge of the door out past the fender when you try to close it. im hesitant to buy a set of these.

I put used XJ ones on my '73 J4000. Took a bit of force to close them, but after sitting in the sun for a couple days, it eased up.

My new ones are very tight too. I have not tried closing from the inside yet but I imagine it is going to be an issue. I have not completely finished installing so maybe they will be better then.

Do a Google search on this site for pre-74 door weatherstrip. There's a link somewhere for eBay seals from a vendor named R and P Carriages. It's thinner than the BJs stuff and allows you to close the doors fully without slamming.

You'll need somewhere around 40' of it. Costs $1.25 per foot. Free shipping. Solves the problem - I put mine on two days ago and love it.

I'm writing from my phone right now, buy when I get to a computer I can look up the actual Trim-Lok part number for you.

Please do! I am interested to know what part number is. Thanks.

Funny thing...

I have R & P Carriage in my saved sellers on EBay as I thought thats who I would buy new seals from when I get to that point. Here is the link to their store.

http://stores.ebay.com/R-and-P-Carriages-Trailer-Sales

I think this is the seal you are looking for...

If someone can confirm that that is the seal I would need, I will order it up tomorrow! I really want to get this done by this weekend. The Jeep has already been sitting idle for 2 weeks and its driving me nuts.

If you do purchase them, please report results. I may try them.

Maybe you give him a call and discuss?

I finally got the brilliant idea to go out and actually measure the dimensions of my seals. These are definitely the replacement that I need!! Dimensions match up exactly. Going to place an order right now. I measured around all of my door openings and I conservatively measured that I need 47 feet. I am going to order 50 just to be safe.

Let us know how they fit. I looked at mine again last night. It really appears that the only area they seem to be too tight is the where the middle of the door where the pull is fastened. That part of the door sticks out further than the lower part where the door panel fits. Hard to describe.

I cannot adjust the hinges any better or the striker or my door seams will not align properly.
