Liftgate side panel drains

What is the correct orientation of these things? I was stumped in the garage earlier. :mad: Are these side specific or universal? My drains are the same and I'm curious if they should be different so they fit correctly. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

There have been pics here before, but would probably be hard to find unless you use Google to search ClassicBroncos.com specifically.
I'll see if I can get a shot of my unmolested hard top gate. It's hanging over a pile-o-parts in the garage though, so can't easily open the lift-gate to get a good look.
Maybe we can still see something of the detail through the gap?

Be right back...

Hard to see since I didn't get the flashlight just right (flash was just too much altogether) but you might be able to see the location and orientation from the images.

Good luck.

Thanks for the info an pics Paul. I spoke to Cory a few minutes ago and I ordered another set. I have two of the same ones so they won't work the way they should. I appreciate it

Hah! Just what you needed eh? Another fly in the ointment to slow down progress!
Sorry 'bout that. Hope the pics helped a little.

I have new seals in the rear and I'm still getting some water in the cab so I'm pulling out all the stops now ;)

I found this pic and it looks like these could be installed differently than the pics you posted.

They do look reversed to me from here. I always have a hard time with different angles in different pics, but that's what it looks like.

The Chariot. The idea is to deflect the water draining along the side of the lift gate away from the lower end. There should be an angled flap that rests against the side of the top. There are some on the market that are incorrect and are little more than a flat of rubber. Those are worthless. I have no idea where those got started.

I was able to get one side mounted like this. When I get the new set I'll be able to do the other side. This way makes the most sense so I appreciate the picture.
