    Just wanted to double check with you guys. Looking at seals for the project. Is LMC a good way to go, or are there other options with better quality or price?

    Starting with their "cab seal kit" and pieces for the tailgate.

    I've bought plenty of seals from them. I think some guys claim there are better places to get them, but I haven't had any problems with the stuff I got.

    Generally speaking....LMC is the last resort for any truck parts.

    Also try Wes @ Classic Heartbeat... very knowledgeable and carries the highest quality stuff available. LMC tends to be the low-cost option (think: JC Whitney) so you can find yourself struggling with fitment issues and/or quality.

    Another good resource is
    http://www.gmcpauls.com/
    When I rebuilt my blazer 12 years ago I got all the replacement seals for the body and hard top from them.
    The seals are still in great shape with no ripping or cracking.
    I keep my Blazer under a carport in the summer and a unheated pole barn in the winter.

    Stuff I've been getting from Brothers lately has been good. You'll find with any of these vendors that shipping is ridiculous though.
