Camper Shell to Cab Seal


Recommended Posts

For those with camper shells, how is the front of the shell sealed to the cab? My rear window does have a lip that looks like some shells may use.

 

I know my current shell isn't made specifically for an MJ. According to the previous owner the shell came from a Ranger. But, I think shells are made more to a common size than specifically for most vehicles.

 

Maybe some type of flexible boot like a semi sleeper?

 

These are the best pictures I have handy. The shell fits really well and there isn't much of a gap between it and the cab.

 

 

 

Thanks,

Willy

I saw one instance where a fella used common garden hose, rubber, and squeezed it in between the cab and cover. Painted it to match. Looked and worked good. I had a '70 J10 I used a rubber strip from the bottom of a garage door. Worked for 7 years, til I sold the Jeep.

Any shop that sells camper shells should have a boot gasket for the shell, very similar to the rubber strip from the bottom of a garage door as jimoshel mentioned. The problem with them is they rub against the back of the cab and eventually abrade through the paint. I prefer the type with their own window as Eagle described.
