        Nice seal

        Seal worked great! I had an issue with water getting in past the old seal and this stopped it. The only thing I would recommend is gluing the ends down. There is only adhesive on the flat part but not the ends. They can come off but with some weatherstrip adhesive, it's all good.

        Dry again

        Quick delivery and it fit like a glove. The whole process of removal and installation took maybe ten minutes.

        EZ on and stopped the leaks!

        EZ on and stopped the leaks! I simply avoided stretching and pressed on temporarily starting at one end then going over again to even up and completed pressing on completely.

        Super easy to install. My factory seal fell off and was sitting along the top. The new seal has a nice tight fit and went on with no problems.

        Fit great

        Best way to install that I found is to start at the two ends and work toward the middle.That way the ends end up where they belong.

        Fits like a glove

        Easy to install, but be sure not to stretch it too tight. I stretched it too tightly at first and the seal was several inches too long. Don't do this. I reinstalled from the mid-point out to the edges and it fit perfectly. No more leaks around the window and reduced noise.

      My lift gate is missing all the seals. I had to replace the entire glass. Which ones do I need? Wrangler 06 Hardtop.

      • Hello, you will need the one pictured on this page and you may also need the Tailgate Lift-gate Glass Weatherstrip, which you can find here:

      This goes on the top edge of the metal tailgate, correct? Not on the glass?

      • Thank you for your question! This part is intended to wrap around the top of the back glass on the hard top. There is no seal on the top of the metal tailgate of the TJ from the factory, only on the bottom and sides of the tailgate. Your factory top, either a hard top or soft top, would have a seal that seals the top of the tailgate from the weather.

      Item J103311 MPN# J103311 Does this fit onto the (fiberglass) hardtop for a 97 TJ, or onto the glass as one review says? I’m confused. My 97Jeep TJ hardtop has no seal attached to the glass. There is a seal on the hardtop which presses against the glass when the glass lid closed.

      • The OPR Upper Tailgate Hardtop Seal is the seal for the tailgate to rear window, which will attach under the glass. This will not fit aftermarket tops.

      Hello, does this seal attach to the hardtop itself or does it wrap around the glass? Thank you in advance!

      • This is attached to the top of that tailgate.
