Driver door seal

Does anybody know where I can get this door seal? Not the seal on the actual door, but on the body.

It's a dealer-only part.

Mine did that as well. You could use black silicone to mend it. Just don't close the door till it cures. Liquid Black Tape works as well.

Mine looks the same. I forgot I was going to get the dealer to replace it when I bought it. Oops. Is there any reason to replace it other than if water leaks or wind noise?

Mine did this as well, in the winter I could feel cold air entering the cabin while driving from that area. $40 and 10m and it was fixed

we bought our jeep used and it has the same thing. i wondered what the heck the previous owner did to cause it. apparently this is just normal wear/tear?

thanks for the heads up:

I bought mine used and thought the same exact thing. I assumed it was wear from the previous owner entering exiting but have yet to touch it myself so I was curious.

Glad to see others have the exact same issue. Thanks for the link to just for jeeps.

Weather stripping is pretty generic no? Quadratec just started stock weather stripping for the XJ, might be able to use that?

In most cases, within the same manufacturer, yes or close enough.
Those seals also tend to shrink and come away from the corners, what I did on my car when they shrank (or even to replace a section) was to get a seal from the wreckers and cut the length I needed (actually did all 4 drs) inserted the piece between the 2 ends and used a super glue to join the pieces. On the corners, you want to pinch the seal narrowing the gap of the seal part that fits over the body edge. Just replacing a section will leave you seeing another seem so if it's cheap enough, just get a new one. The seals are not glued in, it's just a snug fit.
