Wj Rusty Window Strips?

I have a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited with the 4.0L I6. My window strips are rusting out. They are to the point where on the driver door and the rear passenger door, the body is starting to develop rust due to the window strips. I am planning on getting the rust on the body fixed, and replacing the window strips. Can you get those window strips from the Dealer or would you have to buy from an online source? Are they expensive? If from the Dealer can I get the item number, if known. Thanks

$100 for the entire set on ebay. Up here dealer will cost you about almost $400 for the set of 4. Mine aren't good and the g/f's are even worse so we priced them out.

The beatings will continue until attitudes improve!

I have a brand new OEM set for sale. Bought them and never installed them. $100 including shipping.

Previous Jeeps: 84 CJ7 (A True Jeep), 2000 XJ (163,000 Miles/Totaled (Pictures of wrecked Jeep in gallery)), 2004 WJ (parting out die to major electrical issues)

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, how do you have time to do it over.

When you get some, get the non factory ones like tn
he ones teamgrandcherokee sell. Unlike the fasctory ones the re-enforcment is plastic inside rather than metal so you wont get the same problem in the future. I bought a set and they were $99 plus post. They look identical to the factory ones and mine are coming up to two years old now and look as fresh as when I fitted them.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got yourself an electrical problem!

Thanks for the tip. Im going to get them from Team Grand Cherokee. Sorry michiganmaveric yet again, but these are better with the plastic inserts, compared to the OEM Factory Metal inserts. Thanks

When you buy them from Team Grand Cherokee, they also come with a removal tool. It works even faster and easier than a wooden block at getting the old one off. I've since kept the tool in my jeep and found hundreds of other uses for it....

make sure you ask team grand cherokee if they have the tool though i ordered the mouldings and paid like 12 bucks more for the tool and it never showed up with the set. i called them to check on it and they said they were on back order. I you tubed the install and it was kind of hard to do it w
ith out the tool. come to think of it 2 months later I still havent recieved it..
