I need help fast my dad is getting tired of dealing with It and wanting to sell it for that reason

looks like you might need door surrounds. My top doesnt have/need door surrounds and uses the weather stripping around the door to seal against the top.

You might need to hold the door still and bind the frame of the new windows at the top rear of the frame till it fits. Are they new frames to

I have door surrounds I think that's what is preventing it from shutting idk how to take them out though

Citron wrangler 97 02-15-2013 04:43 PM

The weather strip seems too thick to seal so the door won't shut all the way , what can I do about that ?

Driftrage25 02-15-2013 05:22 PM

Yea from that top pick you just gotta bend the tops of the frames man like I said before I had the same prob with mine when I got new skins for the frames. I didn't realize it but I kinda warped em as I was putting the skins on. And you gotta remember that it's a jeep and nothing you buy after market for it is going to fit like a glove adjust,adjust and adjust until it fits man hope you're dad don't sell it cause of that

Citron wrangler 97 02-15-2013 08:15 PM

Which way do I bend the doors ? Out or in ?

Driftrage25 02-15-2013 08:55 PM

In towards the jeep it's self

Not sure what it's called but does it have the black rubber spacer thing on the tub that would make the door frames sit higher? Mine is missing one side and I had to use washers to make the door shut correctly.
