cowl seal

hi people, my cowl seal is knackered. there was 3" of water in the rear footwels. I noticed small drops before but didn't bother as the Jeep was garaged. there is no garage at my new house. I want to know is it ok to buy a new one from Quadratrac or pay crazy prices to Jeep for one.
Over here a new one from Jeep costs £135uk.
Quadratrac i think are around $40, About £30uk.
Jim

Cowl Rubber Seal 55009127

This is how I Figure it, my factory seal last 15 years, I have had this one for close to 7 and no leaks... so even if i do replace it twice, its cheaper then what factory wants

You might want to give a look at the drain inside the cowl vent, too.

I just put a new cowl seal on two days ago. Bought from acmejeepparts on ebay. $25 shipped. The seal was exact same product from quadratec. My old one was dry rotted and leaking behind my dash into the passenger floor. I removed the old one and layed a thin bead of latex caulk to double seal it. Has rained here all day and not a spot of water anywhere.
