Where to buy all the window sash weatherstripping...


Recommended Posts

I am in the process of restoring all of the parts of the MJ i just bought before I worry about modding it too much. Where can I get the window weather stripping, bottom and side channel pieces? I know team cherokee sells them but the prices are ridiculous. mine are trash and let water in around the window in a hard rain. I want to redo the door weatherstripping as well. I am also thinking about removing the chrome trim around the dash and putting a rubber seal there like on the 97+ cherokees as well but I am not sure if it will work. mainly what I need now are the rubber, felt lined pieces that go around the window.

Go to the JY and get them off a 4 door cherokee that has the vent window. I need to replace mine also but won't buy them from teamcherokee

 

maddzz, bad experience with teamcherokee?

 

wolfpack, wholesalemopar.com has them in individual pieces whereas you have to buy all the pieces with teamcherokee. fyi, if you need all the pieces, the price works out the same with either supplier.

Teem cherokee is just over-priced, IMHO. I know you are getting orig. MOPAR, but for 50 % less you can get pretty much the same quality from JCWhitney.

The only thing that concerns me about the JCWhitney window weather stripping is that it is cut to fit. Would be fine for the front of the window however the rear has a near 90 degree bend which the MOPAR one is molded for. Without that molded bend, over time, it would work its way out trying to return to its original shape. To me, fitment and quality, is worth paying for. Just my 2 cents.

the sad thing is, I can get the $200 kit for a 4 door cherokee and get almost all the parts I need with it being cheaper than buying the comanche stuff individually. The really outrageous one is the piece that runs up the front of the main window. they want $99 a piece for it. I was tempted to go to the dealer to see if they could get them and for how much. I am also gonna check at some local body shops.

No bad experience. I just think they are very expensive. I have actually bought from them and had a good experience and will again in the future. I may have to break down and atleast get the window wipes as mine are almost non existent on the outside.

 

I'm pretty sure you can buy the individual pieces from team cherokee too.

Window wipes were what I was referring to all along, so sorry to you and wolfpack for misunderstanding what he was looking for. I haven't been on teamcherokee in a couple months, but last I checked they did not sell the window wipes individually, so that's why I got mine from wholesalemopar.com, about $15 for each side.

I could not find them, their categories are kinda strange

 

Same here. I hate that type of search set up. Theres a few sites like that and i can never find anything. :rant:

 

I'll try to find them later on for you. In the meantime, PM Taz and see if he has access to them. He is our best source (and price!) for factory parts cuz, well, that's what he does, sells parts for a Jeep dealer! If he can't get it, it probably ain't out there anymore. ;)

I've looked on that one too. In fact, there are probably 10 similar sites, and Taz educated me that they are simply dealers looking to "wholesale" parts and/or have substantial surplus inventory, as opposed to a private seller like teamcherokee that picked up surplus and NOS from other dealers. Hence the reason I think it's worthwhile to use Taz as a first attempt in all cases.

Not to step on any toes,(ie,Brent),we're both in the

same situation.I work in parts @ Gulf Coast Dodge,

Ft.Myers,Fl.Been in dealerships 36 yrs,Mopar for 8 yrs.

(GM for 14 yrs BTW).

I am usually logged on here at work.

If you guys are getting parts from BLHTAZ,I would not

offer to do that.His gig. :brows:

But if he's busy and anyone has questions pertaining to

oem stuff I have no problem trying to help out.

Or if you all would rather I mind my own business,

let me know.

:cheers:

Sorry guys, but I have been very busy this week. Please send me a PM if there is something going on that you would like my help with and I don't see it or respond to posts ;)

 

Thanks to mjdoa for calling me today to let me know about this one.

 

Ya'll look at this picture and let me know which pieces you want prices on. The full door surround weather strips (#17) are $56.50 each as I just priced those for someone else the other day.

If you get the whether stripping for around the whole door get it for a 97 and up 4 door cherokee. It is thicker and seals better. I just got some from someone who was parting out a 98 xj sport. Hopefully i get to put them on this week.

 

brent, from that pic i think the window wipes are #'s 9 and 10. and the other molding are 7 and 11. # 11 i believe is the real expensive one, like $100 :eek:

 

I will be looking for 4 door xj's ay the jy this weekend. But a good price on some new ones would be much better ;)

The '97 - '01 door weather strips are a bit more expensive. The CC cost on them will be $75 each, so let me know if you prefer them.

 

I have been very short on staff this week, and especially today, so I have not had time to work on this stuff yet. ;) I have to work tomorrow (Saturday) and we are typically slow so I will try to get some stuff organized then.

Hmmm. Well I'm with him Brent - thats the ones I would want (if I had the money!). But can you post the schemantic for the operable vent window seals as well?
