Exclamation Please help!

Hi everyone,

I recently purchased a 2007 Wrangler Unlimited and am loving it! However, I was driving home and hit a horrible storm, with the top down OF COURSE! The last 30 minutes between Point A and Point B were HELL! Needless to say, my poor Jeep is thoroughly drenched, seats, console, floors, the whole nine yards!

I have taken the top down to let it air-dry, and plan on parking it in the sun (if it ever comes out,) and I removed the drain plugs, but do I need to worry about anything else? Mold/mildew, smells? What about the seats? Any special treatment for them?

Thanks everyone for your help!

I think you'll be fine. There's always a worry about mold, but sunshine will help. Stereos and things under the dash can get corroded, but that's more salt spray and frequent water problems. Seats can usually take a lot of water.

Special treatment is sunshine. Don't seal up a damp Jeep, let it all air out.

Lift up your carpets so they don't trap moisture, unless you get warmth soon.

And practice putting your top up!
