How much should I expect to pay for this weatherstrip? It's the piece on the outside top of the tailgate? I looked on Bronco graveyard and could only find the piece for inside the top of the shell. A local glass company said they could get it for about $50, is that a bit high? Also what years will fit? I saw some in good condition at the junkyard and they only want $4 for them, but all of them were from the '80's and mine is a '94.

from good pal Mexray in March 03:
"Finally got around to replacing the w/stripping at the top of the tailgate in my 1989. Went down to my friendly FORD (For Off Road Dirt) Dealer and ordered the parts shown below. Took two days to get all four pcs.
(1) D8TZ-984 1610-A $26.58 Outside Horz strip that rubs window.
(1) F6TZ-984 2072-AA $16.60 Inside Horz strip that rubs window.
(1) E7TZ-984 1617-A $9.48 LH end seal.
(1) E7TZ-984 1616-A $9.48 RH end seal.
That totals $62.14 before sales tax."

Thanks :) I think I'll head off to the dealer if it's only that small of a difference. I'd rather OEM than aftermarket for a weatherstrip.
