Replacing the weather stripping on this hard door turned out to be a hard pain in the butt that doesnt work out very well . What the hell.
If it helps any, it’s a CJ. They weren’t designed to last, or for that matter be repairable 35 or 40 years later. They didn’t have that much insight back then. So now we must dig, scrounge, engineer, curse, and spend $$$ to keep them viable. Sorry about your frustration.

However, you’re at least attempting it which is more than probably 95% of the population would even do. Give yourself a pat on the back (and a shot of whiskey if that’s your thing) and feel proud that you’ve accomplished what you have. With perseverance you will get your desired result. <img src="https://www.jeepforum.com/gallery/data/4/rock.gif" border="0" alt="" title="DuhRock" class="inlineimg" />
Thank you, I appreciate that . Gonna work on it some more today

Update . The window wasn't cranking all the way up. The regulator arm was bent. It supposed to be straight with a depth-wise bend in it. It goes up now . But I gotta figure something out with this weatherstrip.

C.Honeycutt Started pulling out my transfer case to rebuild it. Have a BW 1339 with part-time kit and overdrive. Hopefully whatever is wrong I can still buy parts for. &#x1f91e;&#x1f3fb;

caseypotts Fuel Pump went out on Thursday, hoping Novak is quick with the turn around and a new one is on my door step when I get home.

While the tank was out I used the time to prep the rear end for the body shop, plan is to fix the dent I put in it about a year ago and to fill in the old tire swing holes.

Unfortunately while all this was opened up I was able to spot some frame rust on the rear driver side. I guess pulling that trail does add a bit of stress on the old girl. Those issue will be addressed as well.

Fourtrail Glad to see that your outer didn't fracture like mine did and take out the spindle as well. Looks like you have the better factory inners that don't neck down like some.

skizriz You warned me the outers were a weak spot.
Id love to just get a full set of chromos and super joints and be done with it, but after the new tires and wheels, the piggy bank is about empty for awhile.
Ill probably go the route you suggested for now, then upgrade inners when i can.

Good job



East Coast Gear Supply has a pretty good deal on 35spl chromo and drive flange package. They have held up good to the 42's in the '6 after I sploded my 30 spline outers.

bob4703 Pulled the engine to replace the clutch. After removing the bolts from below I confirmed that this the better option. Thunderation I hate working laying on my back under the Jeep. Pick up the new clutch set in the morning and will do some pressure washing to get rid of the crud.
