 It looks like it's a factory unit, although it's sort of hard to tell. What the heck happened to it? :)

Thats the same as the factory one in my Concord. Did you call around to the Jeep/dodge dealers with that part number?

In the meantime I would clean it up real good and use a good bead of black rtv then set the glass in and buckle it down.

I called the local Dodge/Jeep dealers.  No luck so far.  One of them couldn't even search that style part number.  The other said he checked multiple dealers.

I ordered a seal last night from an on-line Mopar site. They showed that the part was available but today I received an email saying that the part had been discontinued by Chrysler and none were left in their "vintage warehouse". I had the same type results when trying to order some parts for my 87 Wrangler a few years ago. The parts were still in the catalog but were no longer available, apparently for quite some time. Chrysler must not keep their parts catalogs (at least Jeep) up to date. Maybe you'll get lucky and your dealer will find one at another dealer. Good luck! and let me know if you find a couple  :)

I'm not sure if it helps, but Kennedy American has one listed.  Part # 8134237.  It doesn't really give much information about it though.

It only shows up for the Wagons/sedans though.  I would think it would be the same for all of them but I haven't seen any up close to verify that.

Well now we know where Chrysler's stock went. ;) The Jeep list price on the on-line site was around $25, with their discount price being $16. Kennedy American's price is $40. I guess that's capitolism. Anyway I went ahead and ordered one but I am not overly optimistic. As with Chrysler, I've ordered parts before that were shown on Jeff's site, only to find out he didn't have the part in stock any longer. Actually when I was on his site just now he still shows a seatbelt for a SX/4 ( Spirit) and when I tried to order one two years ago, he told me he didn't have any left. Yet it's still listed on his site, so we'll see. Macdude443 , to order the sunroof seal you need to look under 1984 and newer. Thanks WoodenBirdOfPrey

I got an email saying they just sold the last one the day before my order was received.  I guess you got it.

I haven't heard a thing. I have been wondering what the status was myself. I am also hoping that it's the right part if and when I receive it. Still not 100% sure of the part number and the price was more than I really wanted to spend. I decided to take a chance and see what happens, time will tell.
 Have you checked with the other major AMC vendors? Many of them bought up remaining NOS parts from dealers just as Jeff Kennedy did.

I checked with roughly ten different dealers.  No luck, sadly.  I guess I'll be rigging one up.
