I bought this to replace my old original seal. I noticed the front lip of the seal itself is different than the original. The fitment was very tight, too tight, and does not seal out the water. Leaks worse than my old factory one.
I bought one with the hopes of a smoother look, but now all I have is a piece of foam that fit against the frame as the OLD one did, waste of money, buy original.
My Jeep had been previouly red, from the factory. It is now Petty Blue. The fit was so poor that I had a 1/2" red stripe running along the entire top of the seal, and a smaller one along the bottom. At first, I used a strip of electrical tape to try to hide it, but I ended up buying the OEM seal at five times the price. Also fit poorly where you see it on the inside of the jeep. I had a "stripe" there also. If your jeep is still the original color, you could probably use it. The seal does not fit flush to the windshield frame, it curls up. Very poor "replacement". I would not recommend this product. The picture I took was after peeling the tape. I wanted to attempt to return this "defective" one. I do not concider this a replacement and it is not like the original.
how do I install this seal? it is a 1994 jeep wrangler yj, it has new windshield and all seal around it are new. I am still getting water coming in behind the dash. the seal at bottom of cowl was not replaced and is in rough shape,so I thjink this is where the water is coming in at.

Normo, in order to install this Omix-Ada Cowl Seal you will have to remove the windshield hinges from inside the cab of the jeep and tilt down the windshield frame. There should be a few screws holding on the current one in place, unscrew and remove the old seal. Then just attach the new seal ( you may want to add a bead of clear silicone). I would also say take the seal out of the package and let it lay flat for a day.
