    My top is leaking at the seal, tightened it a few times, and the seal appears to be shot. I can get the new ones from LMC, bu how do they attach? Thanks

    There are 2 seals. One is on the cab and the other is on the top. The one on the top is probably the one you need. LMC, Year One have it and you can probably still get it at the dealer. It glues on. Need a high quality contact adhesive. I'm about to do the same. THe seal on the cab was in perfect condition on the Lady's 79 but the top seal was done. On ours it appears to be getting past that seal and then leaking over the rail into the truck and bypassing the inner seal all together.

    Just for comparison, how are the seals by the bedside on yours? I think mine are allright, but they are pretty expensive aren't they? thanks
