X2 and pull your drain plugs and pull your carpet and let it air dry or use a fan.. alittle sprinkle shouldnt be an issue. its those angle rains that get your speakers and stereo.. dont use any of your electronics untill it dries or you will blow your speakers and possibly your radio
Im a Vet and bled for my beliefs and was willing to die for them, what have you done for yours?
On those days when there is good chance of rain I'll cover my entire drivers seat with an extra large garbage bag also known as can liners. They are just the right size to put over the back of the seat and it will just stretch enough over the seat bottom to ensure a tight fit and all the water just pours down and out the drain plug. As far as the dash and steering wheel a bikini top solves that problem. I usually run with my soft top up and doors and windows off.
Even with my safari top, wrap around jammer, and deck cover my interior got soaked last week when Deby decided she liked Crystal River AND Jacksonville enough to stay for a week.
I have marine speakers so that part does not matter if they get wet. Head unit was protected well enough so that is good to go.
Seats and carpet got thrashed and so I did what I always do. Sucked it up and drove the 2.5 hours back to Jax with water comin in between the top and soft uppers dripping onto my leg from the grab handle.
Did have an issue where when I turned off the ignition the jeep kept runnng but steady pressure on the brake and easing off the clutch took care of that.
I was at least bright enough to pull the front and rear floor plugs........LOL

I Sat with a steam cleaner sucking water out of the seats for 2 hrs pulled the carpets and drain plugs and cursed the entire time because there was nothing on radar even while it was pouring into my jeep
Got a shop vac and vacuumed out the 2" of water in the floors and as much as I could from the seats. Left the Jeep sitting topless out in the sunshine and all was dry within 24 hours. A good shop vac can be worth it's weight in gold and should come as standard equipment.

A lot of good advice so far. If you have standing water then pull the plugs. They are underneath your front seats and front carpet. There should be 6 I think, 3 on each side. There are also plugs in the back but I'm not sure how many.
Keep 'em out for a few days. Let the sun beat down on the wet seats, carpet and interior and it will dry up. If you're pressed for time you can use a shop vac to suck up the water.
I used to get my seats wet with a soft top set up I was running and it was always a pain but the interior would usually dry up in a day or so provided the sun came out.
Don't gain the world and lose your soul. Wisdom is better than silver and gold.
If its a soft top, throw the top up and park it facing the wind. You will stay suprisingly dry. My jeep was outside topless and doorless the other night, I was at work. 2 hours to go, a bad T storm came through with 1 inch hail. I threw my top up and about 45 mins of bad rain near sideways. 2 hours after the rain it was already almost dry. no problem with electric or anything else.

Mine got drenched yesterday. Threw a trash bag over the seat and drove it home. I did out the bikini top on before the rain got too bad. I usually only have the floor carpet in so it's simple to take those out and hang up to drive.

At least i know how to deal with this when it happens....
Coming from a car that you push a button and the top closes in about 4 seconds dealing with a manual top is killing me... the kicker is that its almost impossible to close the top by myself in a controlled environment so i can just imagine trying to put it up when its pissing outside... :bang head:
