Do I need it?

Do I need the lip on the edge of the T-post if I use the newer lower door seal that mounts to the door? I've seen photos of T-pieces that don't have this lip. One of them is rusty and I would just as soon get rid of it.

T-post

Lose it. Newer style door seals will work perfect. Have done so on a clients 110. Looks 100% better. No rust!

Not only don't you need it, you don't want it either. It catches rust bad behind it.

I have the same issue. What's the part number of the new lower door seals?

Update: I actually searched and found it. http://www.defendersource.com/forum/...wer+door+seals
