Anyone else having a "gum" issue?

Finally had a nice hot and dry day to be top free and I take off my freedom tops and it looks like there is black gum on the tops and on my Jeep. It looks to be seal material to prevent leaking. Its just a baby Wrangler(7 months old) so I contacted Jeep to find out what the deal is. Anyone else having this issue?

My '08 has some in a few places along the edges. On mine, it just appears to be some weatherstripping-like material to seal against the elements.

Exactly when did you have this day of no rain and hot? I'm 2 hours north of you and have only seen one day close to that all spring. Believe it was last Wednesday. And then just for the day.

It was the one hot day we have had so far this year. I think it was last Thursday, it was around 85-90. Hell, as much rain as we have gotten a snorkle might be a must add-on. O-H
