I've been leaking water for a while under the dash so I ordered and replaced the rubber gasket between the windshield and the tub. Thankfully the windshield torx came out easy and i got the windshield dropped quickly. No rust or issues at all... I remove the old and installed the new weather stripping (from q-tec) and pulled the windshield up after screwing the gasket in. Once the windshield was wrestled back into place and bolted back to the bars I noticed there is a bit of a lip on the new gasket. It sits close to the frame but not exactly flush. Almost as if I had to push it in even though its screwed into place... Do I need to drop it again and try to push it in? Or is this how it's supposed to be?

Yeah, I hadnt taken any but thought you guys would understand... Anyway, here goes. Disregard the peeling paint as I will be Monstalining the Jeep soon. The bonehead PO had some crappy gasket that didnt belong there and used some type of adhesive that I cant get off...

From a distance:


In this one, you can see how it sticks up on the bottom:


And in this one, you can see from the top how it juts out slightly...


And here is a glamour shot just because...


Like I said, its screwed in at all points and this just seems to be how it fits. Not sure how I would get it flush. Thoughts?

I had the same issue when I installed mine from Q-tec. I had to have my son help by pushing the gasket it as I pulled back the window. It didn't fully seat but it's a lot better. I'll take a pic shortly and post.

A friend gave me one that was from q-tech and was meant for a CJ. It fit a lot better than the YJ one I bought which seemed way too thick.

Good to know. I just dropped the windshield again and can't get it to sit flush... the gasket is thick and I have no doubt it will seal... But aesthetically it just doesn't look good... Oh well I guess.
