Seals between Hard Top and Frame
 
Time to put the hard top back on my '94. I took it off earlier this spring (right after I bought it), and I noticed it had some type of seal between the bottom flange of the two rear side panels and the actual frame of the jeep. It looked something like a simple weather stripping you'd get at Lowes or something, but it may have been something more specific, such as a neoprene seal (i guess).

Any suggestions on what to use? Do I even need it?

You can get the neoprene rubber one, but honestly I can't make myself spend $25 on it when the $5 home door stuff from Home Depot seals about as well.

Mostly you will find that it does not last as long as the more expensive stuff.

I went to Autozone, bought the weather striping for a pickup canopy. It leaks less.
