I replaced the rubber window channels in both of my doors, and now they are so tight against the glass that I can barely open or close the windows. They cranked up and down easily before I made this change, so I don't believe the problem has anything to do with the regulator. Has anyone else had this problem? mad

I've sprayed lubricant on the seals, which helped a little.

Well, this doesn't make me feel to confident. I was just about to do mine on the dodge. Where did you purchase yours from?

I bought them from LMC. After 3 days of cutting my hands and arms wrestling with them, I took a razor blade and cut away some of the rubber so it didn't squeeze the glass so hard. Now I can roll them up and down with one hand. I'm afraid to try to install the inner and outer lower pieces.

I also replaced the seal that runs the perimeter of the doors. It takes a while to figure out how to 'clock' them correctly so that all of the pins line up, but once I found the right orientation it was an easy job.

Did you have any issue closing the doors with the new rubber? I have it all for my 73 and want to tackle that project.

No, the doors close easily. I have noticed that the door sticks out a little at the bottom, but it's closed at the top. That's a common adjustment problem. It's not bad enough to worry about.
