Door seal mod

I know this has been disscussed alot but am getting ready to do it myself and would like your opinions on it. I have a 01 supercab and I think I am going to try 1/4" ID x 3/8" OD latex tubing. I don't want it to be to tight but I also don't want it to be to loose. What sizes and materials have you guys had luck with?

Thanks
Ted

3/8 surgical tubing. Wasn't worth the effort.

Re: Door seal mod

well no not with surgical tubing... that stuff is flimsy VS thick rubber tubing that is in the plumbing section....

I did mine with 3/8 tubing...It's worth every penny (about 15 dollars) and the time it takes (about 45 minutes)...

Re: Door seal mod

A lot of people including myself have had good success with this tubing and the price cannot be beat.

cheap tubing

You will need 50ft to do a crew cab.

Re: Door seal mod

So you just take this tubing and push it through your door seal? Does it make a big difference? I mean is it really worth it?

Re: Door seal mod

I used 50' of 3/8 latex for my CC. It worked well. Stay away from the plastic type tubings, they tend to get hard and cause closing problems. IIRC, super crews have some blockage issues in the corners that you may need to take a razor to to get the tubing through. Don't have the good link any more cause the other site deleted all my saved threads.
