One of the easiest ways to keep your truck going for years to come is by protecting it from the elements. Good news for Dodge truck owners, Auto Metal Direct has developed all-new OE-style replacement door window seals to help you protect your ride. Available for the 72-79 and the 80-93 trucks, they also cover Ramchargers as well. With the help of Jubee Mays of Jubee Mays Muscle Car Restorations, we take you thru the steps of removing your seals and replacing them with all new rubber.
This old truck has been in the family for years, it’s worked hard and although showing its age, it remains a solid truck. There are still plenty of years of service left in this 1986 D100. It retains its factory LA 318 5.2L V8 which was superseded by the Magnum V8. At some point, it was upgraded to a Quadrajet four-barrel mostly found in police applications.
But back to the seals, these door window seals often get brittle and deteriorate over time. They function to keep water and debris from collecting in the door. As you probably know, most trucks from this era are quite familiar with rusty door bottoms and the lack of attention to the seals is the main culprit of this rot.
Jubee will walk us thru the install and show you just how easy the install can be. A couple of tools are helpful. Needle nose pliers, a flat head screwdriver are about all you will need.
