Check the inside bottom of your quarter panels, rust will develop their. Moisture gets in from bad quarter window gaskets and bad tail lamp bucket seals.

would that explain why I found the factory tool bag damp one day?
Partially.
I have spent the past year chasing that.
What I have found, and think I’ve solved finally….

1) sunroof leak, or drain tube clog. I had this issue first. My driveway is at an angle, when I had the headliner out, I saw some water would trail all the way to the rear quarter panel. Fixed that.

2) Then I found the seals around clips that hold plastic vent louvers on leaked behind the slider window. Fixed that. Thought I was done. I posted a thread about that process somewhere.

3) Nope. Turns out. The trim molding under that slider window has little body clips, and gaskets that failed. One of those holes is right above the jack, and the jack was sitting in a puddle. (Very carefully removed that trim piece as those clip are tiny and v.hard to find, I think you’d have to buy the whole part)

Currently, I have that trim off, and the holes sealed with tape. As a test.

Been dry back there for 2 weeks.

4) now need to check the tail light gaskets…..

Sorry for thread tangent.

I doubt it. The tool bag sits up higher. Another good thing to do is treat the bottom of the inner quarter with good rust proof products in case moisture does get in their. Water can also enter through fender flare holes or by crossing a deep river. If water does get into the bottom of the quarter, it has no way to get out unless you remove it by soaking it up.

I wouldn’t say so either. In my opinion that would be from the molding piece of trim under the 3rd row window. I had a leak coming from each clip. Instead of buying new ones, I used rubber electrical tape as a new seal. Instead of buying new ones.

Sounds like we had very similar issues. Expect my sunroof and everything was okay.

Total garbage jackass fix but in my old 450 I couldn’t find the source of that leak to save my life and one day I got so frustrated I sprayed all my trim with plasti dip and whatever I could get to on the inside where the jack is.

Leak was gone….🤦🏻‍♂️

As my rig is closing in on 300k miles on the body and living in the PNW, Im wanting to replace all the weather stripping, window runs and all that in the rig. Have everything nice a sealed back up, and maybe my windows will roll up and down better. Also don't want any rust, rust is bad.

When I was doing my research and taking notes on all the part numbers for weather stripping and window runs, I came across the small window on the back doors. As this window does not move or anything. How would the weather stripping be replaced on that window? Also, is there anything I am missing? I will be posting my research down below.
