Just because your Jeep is made for a open-top driving experience doesn't mean you should put up with leaky weatherstripping. This inner glass seal is designed to meet or exceed the specifications of the original part, meaning it fits right and creates an air and water tight seal. That means no more enduring the howling wind whistling through your interior on cold winter mornings, or mopping up water that collected on the floorboards because it rained, and you had the window rolled all the way up. Old, cracking and hardened seals are also painful to rest your arm against, so stop being miserable in any weather. Construction.
This inner glass seal is constructed using automotive grade rubber, which is designed to truly endure the elements. That means after years of sitting in harsh sunlight, pelting rain, freezing cold and extremely dusty environments, you can depend on this seal to keep working just as it should. The metal tabs that are integrated with the rubber can bend, which is helpful for the installation process and maintaining a tight fit. The size and dimensions of the weatherstripping is made to match the original, so fitment isn't a problem. Installation.
Installing this inner glass seal isn't exactly an easy job, but it's not horribly difficult. Plan on setting aside around two hours, mostly because lining up the metal tabs with the holes in the door can be a little tricky and might require you to make a few attempts to get it right. Before beginning the job, roll the window all the way down, giving you total access. Removing the old seal requires a lifting tool such as a flat head screwdriver or pry bar, and mabye a utility knife. For the installation, you don't need any tools. Start at one side of the door, lining up the tabs with the holes and inserting them inside, working you way to the other side. Application.
The Omix-ADA Inner Glass Seal - Passenger Side is designed specifically for 1987-1995 Jeep Wranglers (YJ).
