    The rear window is loose. Everything mechanicaly is fine. The hard top has good trim in it and the window fits snug in it, but down across the door, there is no trim left thats not dry rotted and worn off. Just wondered if new trim would help and where can I get it. The tailgate fits nice and snug also, and doesn't move. Help!!!!!!

    TAKE HER TOP OFF, AND ROLL HER IN THE MUD!!!!

    I We have a trip to Disney OK to night back on Sunday then its time to put the softtop up and lower the hardtop on!!!

    My back window has new rubber and it still ratels around and make all kind noise!!!

    My hard top does keep the rain and snow out better the the soft top does.

    I understand the jeep thing I drive a BLAZER!!

    Re: I feel your pain!

    Yeah I made it though Dixie run and drove it up there in the low 40's and I only have a bikini top! Haven't had the spare cash for a full soft top yet [​IMG]. Looks like the hard top is going on for the season tomorrow. We are expecting 30's this weekend and it looks like we are going to have a cold winter down here in Atlanta this year. Last year I ran it topless till late October. Well my Supra is a Targa so when I need that topless fix I can still get it when it's warm. Ohh well there is next year for another season of full topless fun in the K5!

    Don't leave that top off during the fall if your in CO, you just might end up with a truck full of snow. Which just so happend to my buddy's Bronco, needless to say I laughed my ass off. Esp. after seeing him drive it with no top 'cause he couldn't put it on. Heh, vinyl no stretch when it's cold.

    Try LMC for the new seals - as for putting the top on, hold out as long as you can. I went all the way to November last year before I finally gave in.
