Are you talking about the outer seals for the steel doors? Luckily I tackled those a while back. They are good and seal great!

However, I have all the seals for the windows guides, tracking, small vents and everything they need but have been procrastinating because I know it will get involved. I just want to replace all of them at the same time since it will require I tear open the doors. The window guides at glass sides are bad; cracked and separating in some areas. Not looking forward to it but knowing me, once I get into it, I will go all out. I plan to add Dyna-mat on the inner door itself to sound proof it as well. Might as well since the inner door will be open and exposed!

Replaced the H4 halogen bulbs to a higher wattage. Glad I did because one of the old bulbs was ballooning.
Replaced a few rubber lines and added fuel additive to clean fuel from within. (Archoil-AR6200)

Tomorrow I plan on retouching (Textured Paint) the console and removing the rear-view mirror to a more center position.
It was a fun FUN DAY amidst all the chaos lately!

Looks like they went up a 100 bucks in price: http://newtrailer.us/trailers/utility-trailers/3-5-ton/
That's a great price. That trailer here is $3600.00. The factory is likely one reason for the better price. Nice trailer by the way too. Thanks

Alabamacj71981 Started after a year of work! I Monstalinered my hard top, rattle canned the inside white, put on all new shocks, shackles, refurbed my leaf springs, Monstalinered the inside, rebuilt transmission and transfer case, put in roll bar cover, new seats (smittybilt), new decals, New Tuffy 10 inch console, New twin stick, and new optima yellow battery. Holy crap. Almost there. Just have to fix a weld. Then I’ll be rolling again.

PhillyDak Noooooooo. It's made by Crown. Where can I but the good one?

And since I just now replaced the lower column bearing with a Crown one, should I replace that too?

And my wife wonders why I drink!

I hope you replaced it with quality rubber boot from Fairchild and not one from either Crown or OMIX. Crown or OMIX, you will be replacing it again in less than a year.

PhillyDak Replaced the boot on the lower intermediate steering shaft. It wasn't that hard. I used a space heater to warm up the rubber boot and the heat made the rubber stretch far more easily. Oh and turn the warmed boot inside out to get it over the steering pins.

One thing to watch out for is losing the washer at the bottom of the steering shaft coupling (bell). I put everything back together, put radiator back in and topped it off, then walked by where I packed the boot with grease and found the washer on the ground. Yup, had to pull it all apart and redo.
