    I was thinking of rebuilding my frame, the bottom where the heat blows though and the front lip wear I believe the seal is supposed to fit tight against is the worst part. I’m not sure exactly how the seal is supposed to fit on that front lip but mine doesn’t even come close to looking right, does anyone have suggestions or pics to show how the seal is supposed to sit correctly on the lip, does the crown seal actually work the way the OEM seal works?

    thank you

    The offshore rubbersare hit and miss the lip on the frame is the same plane as the bottom with the holes and about a half inch. [​IMG] Kinda hard to see but that’s the lip just above the hinge.

    Ok thanks a lot, very good examples the red Jeep shows great fitment, mine is not even close, it may be the crappy omix-ada seal I have. I will try and rebuild and new crown seal,
