Mucket seals?

Ok, after a first time initiation of swapping my hard top to soft today, I found these two parts (mucket seals) and I'm not sure popped off the surrounds or were on the tub while taking off the hard top. How critical are mucket seals for water leaks? Do I need them for the surround parts? Reason I need to know is because its gonna rain for a few days straight up here.

Thanks in advance!

Those go on the top corner of your windshield frame.

For the hardtop only or to be used with the soft top? Sorry but I need clarification... According to the thread I posted earlier, a poster said they go under the surround where it joins with the tub. Now I'm really confused :/

Mucket seals are flat. I'm pretty sure the piece you posted is used no matter what top is on.

Hard or soft top. The door surround rubbers are flat. Are you missing both door seals? I'm positive the pic you posted are the seals for the windshield frame.

Says here "hardtop" but I run mine with my soft top. http://m.4wd.com/newui/search.aspx?sku=OAI12304.06
The pic here↑ is the passenger side seal. It sits right on top like it's shown.

That part I have on my 2006 se that came with a soft top. I bought a used hard top and those were not on it. It is attached to the body. Leave it

That is not what I have unfortunately. I'll post of pic of both later this morning or afternoon and figure out if I need to get it installed asap in my fathers garage since its raining cats and dogs atm. There were two rubber pieces in the corners which clearly remember that didn't come off. I still have a feeling the part I have fits at the bottom of the surround where it joins to the tub.

This is quoted from the thread I posted above, specifically post #16:

As you "open" the surround, the bottom part fits into a hole on the tub, then the top part goes over the roll cage windshield support bars and is screwed in place by two bolts with black knobs.



Make sure your Jeep has mucket seals! If not, you'll need a pair of them as well:

OK, first of all when I was writing this thread, I was dead tired and we all know that leads to mistakes. So I want to apologize to everyone who helped out. This picture is exactly what I have after double checking today. Also, I had a look at the bottom of the surrounds where they attach to the tub and they seem loose so I'll be taking part of the soft top off to add these pieces back on where they should be.

Again, I am sorry and appreciate everyone's assistance. PS no leaks this morning
