    If it helps, I just replaced the strickers on the Navajo. I pulled them out of my '00 sport doner. They fit fine and the doors close perfect now.

    I've tried a couple of things but am now using a clear tubing from Home Depot. I think it is 1/2", not sure at the moment. But, I have to soften it up with hot water and press it on while soft, then trim it to length. This is working fine on two Explorers and a 4 door F250. Even the rear hatch on the Explorers.

    Are the 4 strikers the same for the side doors? The Dorman 38445 part says it’s only for the front. I’m wondering if they say that so people don’t try and install it on the hatch.

    Yes. Front and rear door strikers are the same.

    Good luck.

    Ditto, those are the only good alternatives to the OEM strikers. The Help kits with four bushings have the two for the hatch.
