I purchased a new set of door seals for my 56 truck. I put them on and now I can’t close the door all the way. The seals are from Metro soft seal which normally has a good product in my experience. Fortunately I have a couple other Task force trucks(55-59) that have original seals. I compared the original to the repop and the cross section is quite different. My question is there a seal out there that is more like the original? Or can anyone recommend a better seal?

Steele Rubber is the best.You may have to slam the door hard and leave it in the heat of the sun for awhile to get the seals to "set".
