CJ7 Body seals

Hi All, i bought omix seals for my cj7 (tailgate, doors, upper liftgate) but the quality is very poor and i have problems to fit it. The doors seals are bit longer than originals and i had to relocate some clips , the liftgate outer seal doesn't works in anyway. The rubber is too thick and it's impossible to close the door. Result: A big waste of money. Please, could someone tell me which brand make a good quality seals as the originals ?
Thank you in advance for help.
best regards.

I've read positive reviews about Metro seals, but I have no experience with them.

Hi Matt, i received the Metro hardtop seal just yesterday, the rubber quality is very good but i have the same problem to fit it. The seal is too high in the lower angle and the door doesn't close
I will have to use the grinding wheel to reduce the rubber thickness . :-(

Have a nice day

I have a Metro rear hatch seal that came in a little "fat". I left it alone and over time it compressed just fine.

I call it a distributor, not a dizzy.
