Never had a problem with Dennis Carpenter weather stripping. They are my first, and onl,y choice when it comes to weatherstrip materials

I have found the people at Carpenter's to be more than willing to help out when there is a problem. I would suggest calling them and talking specifics.

Good luck.

Got a set from D.C. And the fit was bad.
I cut parts of it out to try to make it fit.
I ordered another set and it fit fine.
I think the first set was packaged wrong.
The second set has been on my truck since 2010

I just got my set around march and they fit so bad around the top and edge of the doors.i don't know to try and order another set from them or try a different manufacturer.some of dc's stuff is great and some not so much.there floor pans fit extra nice but the cab mounts left a little to be desired but a little hammer and dolly work and they're in.windshield gaskets fit great but the door glass felt was awful but was better than nothing.i've got a new headliner from them still in the box so I hope it fits.

Has any one used Steele products. They're supposed to be high quality, don't know if they have products for our trucks.

At one time, LMC door rubbers were junk and not usable, I have not idea if this is still true, but LMC is in my consideration middle of the road quality and I only use their products when I have to. I have used Carpenters exclusively and had few if any problems. I believe any problems you have should be reported to Carpenter. I also believe that Carpenter has gotten so big that it may not be easy to do quality control. Many of the parts sold by the vendors are coming from other vendors, who may or may not be jobbing to an unknown supplier. Most of Carpenters rubbers were being made by Carpenter at one time. Now perhaps he may be jobbing some out when he runs low. My only other suggestion is that a lot of us are doing this for the first and possibly only time, and have no experience on how to install these parts. I find it is best to install the parts with the doors off and after these have been painted and are easy to work with.

RICH Here is what I have seen so many times is that they cut the seals since they are trying to put them on the doors after the truck is all done and painted,, WRONG,, Doors need to be fitted first on truck to be sure all doors fit right,, Then paint doors install door seals then hang the doors,,, NOW BEWARE AND LOOOOK at your door bottoms because some doors where the wire and fasteners go might be smaller and have to be re-drilled to accept the seal at bottom of doors and also did you pay attention to see if any clips where on the doors along the sides since some trucks had clips around the seals around the doors as well and use 3M weather strip glue no other but that

you did not say if the doors where off or not before installing the seals +++ these trucks on doors have to fit good all around,, in other words does not make a difference primer or painted truck take the time to fine tooth all adjustments, then mark where everything needs to go and then door seals and then do the whole process over again,, also if the doors have ever been sprung, any kind of accident or repairs in the cab will throw things out of whack and then of course the door seals will have a issue,, of course could be a bad pair of door seals as well

Could you be more specific as to what the problem around the top is?
Hard to add anything to help when it's not clear exactly what the problem is.....

It is not uncommon when installing new weatherstrips that the the door(s) will fit tight, I have had cases where we had to move the striker out, but after several months, the weatherstrips will compress slightly, allowing the strikers to be moved back where they need to be to have the door(s) close flush to the B pillar......

I marked the doors before I took them off and put the weatherstripping on and then reinstalled the doors.the problem is mainly at the front and rear of the top of the door.it bunch's up at the corners(not in the center).what was left of the old weatherstripping fit fine at the top,just wasn't much left of it.
