    The only packaged "kits" I've seen offered were from LMC.And even then you'll still need to buy more to replace ALL the weather stripping.

    All the other co.'s sell thing individually.

    On average I'd say it will cost approx. $350-$450 to replace all your weather stripping.

    Either LMC or Chevyduty carry complete kit's, it will save some dough to buy it that way. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA I wish!! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Last time I priced weatherstripping, it was close to $500 just to do the ones on the hardtop!! /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif If you're trying to replace ALL the seals, there are going to be some obscure ones that are hard to find (and expensive even if you do).....the vertical tailgate seals come to mind. They are clamped behind a thin strip of metal, and have a "foot" that comes out from the bottom to seal under the floormounted strip..... can't say that I've ever seen one in a catalog, but I'd like to know if anyone else has!!! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Greg,
    I was trying not to scare the guy.Your right...the total price would be more towards $500 than $350.

    I've got the tailgate seal but have not seen the "vertical" ones.

    Here are the strips for those who don't know what they look like.

    Now I'm kinda bumbed I threw mine out /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif
    They were rusted but could have been fixed by someone who really wanted them.

    I hope I have made up for it by sparing other parts my abuse by giving them to you and Greg /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I have gotten better about keeping all the small parts but sometimes you just have to clean house (I reciently junked my old bent up rear bumper along with the brackets...but that is different because you can buy them new).

    It has been hard for me to strike a balance in junk it vs. keep it.

    I know that I have seen weatherstripping kits on ebay before. Don't know the quality or if they guarantee their products or anything, but just another idea.
