These would just flood your jeep. They are not at all the same type of seal as factory.
Thanks for the heads up.

My uppers don’t fit. Any ideas? The 3 insertion holes seem to be spaced wrong.

My doors are hard to open and close and the fronts will fly open while the Jeep is moving. Any ideas?

You can measure between the holes, and measure the pins.
If they are far out of wack, you can use a heat gun(carefully), to heat up the posts, slip a snug fitting piece of pipe over the pins, and bend them slightly, and/or, you can start with some coarse sand paper and sand the posts, as well as the center locating pin till you get the fit you want.
Unfortunately, I had to work on the passenger side upper to get hem to fit properly on my OEM half doors. I think the right front uppers are molded slightly wrong.
I wound up removing quite a bit of the outside of the center pin to get the fit close.
Still working on the end posts little by little.
Good luck.
It's a pain in the ass, but you'll like 'em when you get 'em right.

As far as the door opening, sounds like you'll need to adjust the hinges and strikers.

Thanks. I would be nice if Bestop would make some videos of the work that needs to be done once we get these... like the one they did for painting them.

I had a hard time with the front windows at first too and thought that the center hole did not line up with the peg, mine are mopar windows (same, just branded differently and black diamond). But with Bestop's help, I discovered that the fronts do not just drop straight into place like the back windows do. You have to insert the front peg first, all the way back in the hole, then with the window tipped forward, insert the back peg in the back of its hole. Then slowly lower the window, adjusting the angle so that the center peg aligns with its hole. It took some practice to master, but now I can do it very quickly. Sometimes, I have to give the passenger side window a little tap from the outside to pop the center peg in.

Hmm. This sounds promising. I’ll try it and report back.

I tried this and I still can't seem to get the center peg to go into the hole. I don't know why because it seems to be lined up sometimes.

Eureka! On the third time I got it. I was the tap from the outside that was missing. Thank you so much.
