    I know many of you don't run doors etc.

    I just replaced my broken door glass and the power motors on both sides and discovered the plastic seal had been removed on the driver's side by the PO. I've always been annoyed at how much wind blows through (especially when its -20 outside).

    Does anyone know if the plastic seals that go between the inner panel and the door are available? If so where?

    Just use some Visqueen (sp?) and some of that super tack gasket adhesive. To my knowledge it is not "special" plastic.

    That's likely what I'll do. The stock one just has the nice holes in the right places and some kind of flex joints where it might move. I thought I'd see if it was available and cheap - if not it's some left over plastic from insulating the house ;)

    Bubble wrap...

    I used a roll of Bubble wrap stuff like they use for shipping behind the door panels.. ...I put it under the carpets too--makes a huge difference in the warmth of the cab!..now I have to slam the doors or open the windows a bit to get them to shut the first try,its so airtight!....I almost never need the fan on now,just the air coming thru on its own heats the cab up nicely.. :laugh:
