    The dealer stuff is always the best because its exactly what you have. 2001 is the last year that you're gauraneteed to get parts for your K5. After that manufactures aren't obligated to keep poducing the stuff.

    I've had JCW door weatherstripping on the Jimmy for a couple of years now with no problems whatsoever.....Good stuff (in this case) and cheap. I think I paid 12 bucks a side.

    I got mine from Cheyenne. The price was good, but no advice beyond that because they aren't installed on the Blazer yet.

    Got mine from Jcwhitney also and they went on with no problem... I couldnt find the exact part number for my 73 and emailed them and they gave me a part number that I had not seen in the magazine or website so you may want to try that route... Amazing how much wind noise I was getting before the new gaskets...

    I got mine from the Dealer. I paid $40 a side but it matched exactly. I figure that Chevy made the original stuff last 15 years so they did something right.
