I bought one from AM and the rubber strip was separating from the cowl and there was a gap at the ends where the rubber strip is supposed to meet the windshield. I guess some things never change. ...

I believe that the 94-98 rams are a bit larger. Just by a set for your year. I also suggest that you buy a new set of lines and make sure that you do not strip the threads as you screw them in. ...

I know on my 2003 if I loosen the set screw and turn the threaded hook in or out, I can adjust how tight the top clamps to the header. I do not know how the 2014 is set up.

If you mean the well behind the rear seat, this is a common problem. The most common culprit are 2 wear holes below the rear window. You won't see them and the only real solution is a new rear...
