Soft top and rain?

With full hard doors and a soft top does rain still get in anywhere? Im just wondering if i should take my hard top off (forever)

Funny you should ask that today because it freaking poured on the way home..... and not a drop inside. Soft tops are amazing that way.... they keep the rain out.

I made it 500 miles before it got soaked

As long as the top is installed properly you shouldn't have a problem.

I wouldn't say that

I love my hard top. Keeps the Jeep much warmer in the winder.

haha and ur only in arizona!

but a hardtop is very nice for when its cold or when you want to have a conversation or be on the phone without yelling, and also if you leave you jeep at the airport or something for a while or at the mall even, much more secure!

when you go to a soft top remember to leave your doors unlocked, or else they'll just cut the top and put you back even more $$$

He is right... If you lock it, they will only cut through the top. I just reccomend getting some tuffy storage stuff... a console and a replacement glove box to put valuable stuff in and leave it unlocked. As for stealing teh whole vehicle... get an alarm that kills the ignition system.

And my top is 10 years old on its last leg, and only leaks where the years of the previous owners abuse caused tears in the top.

Giddyup! They are funny like that, don't work worth a darn hanging on the garage wall, (although I'll bet the wall is still dry!) but keeps everything nice and dry when they are on!
