rear window/tailgate water leak

hi, everyone. i've been reading some posts after googling about my jeep leaking. liked this forum site so much i just had to join. i'm a new/novice owner of a '99 jeep wrangler. no instruction books, owner manual, etc. just winging it here. anyway, put my hardtop on yesterday and rain leaked in where the bottom rear window corners meet the tailgate and quarter panels. i read something about weatherstripping and stuff, but i'm lost with the gearhead language. can someone dumb it down for me? or tell me another way to keep rain from coming in?

Welcome to WF. Never had that problem with my hard top. Can you post pics in a new thread in the TJ section? You'll get a lot more help there.
