Hard top/Soft top 88YJ

Hello Jeepers

I bought a new set of Seals for mine on my 95 I never had it leak or a draft !


I plan on doing this again on my 89 when it comes time to install the top again

I used what's call "emseal", which is an expanding foam strip used for metal roofing. Fully expanded it measures 1"x1".

I am by no means a professional. I know just enough to get myself into trouble.
