    Yeah sounds exciting......Replaced both door and window rubber,on driver and passenger side with my 16 year brother.It was a piece of cake! Ordered everything from JcWhitney! Only took about an hour for each side..!!

    How much was the kit? Does it make a big difference in wind noise? Are the windows slower now? I am looking into doing this to mine.

    Yeah it makes a big difference in both wind noice and speed! It cost $16.95 per side for the felt window channel,and $11.95 for each door seal....for shipping and handling everything cost about $75 dollars. I live in CA so it took awhile to get it. I also lubed the window tracks ,with some WD-40 works great now!

    When I did the rubber on mine...it took me a long ass time on the drivers side....it wouldn't pop in at the bottom..so i gave up....now the damn window is out of place and blows dirt in my face....and it also takes me 2 days to make 1minute rice...so you have to understand.
