Picked them up from him yesterday. 2 of them have 4-6/32" and the other 2 are probably 80%. For free I'm not sure I can complain. Not sure I want to go through the expense of mounting the worn ones...

13 JKU here, just checked and mine doesn't look like that either. But when I took a peek I did notice I had some weatherstripping pinched in another spot, so good thing I took a look!

Nice. I'm going to go with a dark blue/black combo to go with my paint/trim color, if I can find that locally. As for other uses, thinking I could make something that I could slip onto a deer to pull...
