A-Pillar Bumper Seals?


Recommended Posts

Just curious, as I've never heard of this part before...

 

I was browsing TeamCherokee (I know, but some things you just can't get from anyone else) and came across this: http://teamcherokee.com/a-pillar-foam-bumper-seals-oem-cherokee-1994-1996/

 

Anyone know what this does or where it goes? The listing says it can be applied to earlier model XJs and MJs, but does it actually do anything?

I don't have any wind noise.   :P   And I don't think that's what they are for anyhow, but I can't prove it. They weren't available until 1994, so for Jeep to manufacture them there must have been complaints about the earlier models. And they did leak around the A-pillars.

You probably have wind noise from the driver's seat cushion.

I know you do. And you should know what's the purpose of these seals. Were there complaints about early XJ's leaking or wind noise around the A-pillar? Or did you retire from your dealership before they started making XJs?

there are some similar looking pads in my dakota and my best guess (at least in that truck) is that they prevent the wind from rushing up the a-pillar gap along the door seal (which might carry rain up with it too).  just a guess.

@stroker: Yeah, I'm aware. I only buy things there that I can't find anywhere else and no expensive stuff. If I do get snookered, I won't be out for hundreds, I guess. My previous orders have arrived on time and without issue.

 

@hornbrod: Why not? I would assume there's some kind of reason the factory put these things in. My truck does have considerable wind noise. I'm going to take any chance I can to improve it.

Makes sense, and yes, why not? Compared to the one other MJ and several XJs I've had, my 91 MJ has the least wind noise of all. And the XJs were all 94 and above. Keep us posted.

Adding these on some jeeps, would be like using a tube of silicone and a 3 big rocks to stop the Colorado river.  

 

With that said, I have done alot to make my MJ quiet. So I may get these, every little bit helps. 

 

Last time I had engine noise, I fixed it by turning up the radio. Sounds like that fits here.
