Door Seal Mod
Today, my wife & I did the Door Seal Mod.
I purchased the 3/8" Vinyl Tubing from Lowes, 4-20' Lengths for my CC. Total was about $16.00.
The door seals come off very easy. Remove the snap in kick plates and the door seal pulls right off the cab seams. No adhesives. Mark where the seam is on the bootom for easier re-installation.
I sprayed some silicone into the open channel on the door seal and used a fish tape to snake thru. Tied a string to the fish tape pulled the string thru, then drilled a small hole on the end of the tubing attached the string and pulled the tubing right thru.
Once I figured out the game plan on the 1st door, each other door only took 10-15 minutes.
It took an hour all together. All the doors close ok, except for the drivers door. That one is really tight. I think it will be ok after the molding & tubung settle a little.
I havent driven the truck, we did the mod after detailing the truck to cover it, as I am leaving for a trip on Tuesday. However, I did have to move the truck from one side of the driveway to the other before covering it, and I can say the cabin is dead quiet. No engine noise at all.
I look forward to driving it when I return.
