    my 83 K5 seems to have water seeping in from under teh tailgate adn into the rear of my blazer... havent really had much time to look at it but any suggestions on what i could be or how to fix it would be appreciated.

    btw... no rust on the tailgate and as far as i can tell any window gaskets look fine...

    They tend to rust here on the ends take up your mat or carpet if you have one. LMC Truck and Chevy Duty sell the seal plus if you watch eBay you can find them too.
    LMC gets $49.95 or Classic parts (Chevy Duty) gets $29.95 pn# 01-831
