replacing seals around window...

complete newb question was trying out a different rune profile on my motor last night, and noticed that the seals -- the exterior rubber whether stripping that frames the window-- around the door windows are all shot (I had rolled my truck two years ago, the doors are all donors). since I've replaced everything else on the dammed thing, may as well replace those. Never done it before, prefer not to use the trial-and-error method. what's involved in doing this? where can I buy new seals?

Re: replacing seals around window...

I just replaced mine and got the seals on teamcherokee.com. Good fitment, nice and flexible too, definitely better than the 25 year old torn ones I had. I was replacing window glass at the same time, so I had the entire window and wing window assembly out, it was a very simple exercise at that point.

They just clip into place, no glue or anything, so it is just a matter of persuading the old seals out and getting the new ones lined up properly.

The Uchannel felt that is on the sides of the window, is fairly generic and is available cheap at rockauto.com

The wipe seals is a bit harder to find. rockauto used to have it but I haven't checked lately.
