Seven Wranglers and never more than a few drops. However, I've never tried a drive through car wash.

Traded off the 08 soft top that never leaked a bit.

Had my 14 JKU with HALF doors through a Local automatic wash last week with no leaks at all. When power washing it, I was able to get some drips through the seam at top, where soft top meets soft upper

Soft top from Tim, at ORH, in Canada. I run it year-round in Wisconsin, and have no leaks.

Mine didn't leak during Sandy last October.

Add some foam here and there and accept the fact these things don't have rain gutters.

Or buy a Kia Soul and leave these things to the people that know how to handle them.

4 jeeps, all soft tops (one part time hard top), 2 TJs & 2 JKs and not a single leak. Guess I'm lucky like that.

2010 JKUR. Dealership has replaced soft top 4 times for leaking. Works for 3-6 months and it starts again. Took it in yesterday for the same issue and they said I need a new bow assembly and door seals. Jeep has 46,000 miles on it and I'm in the extended warranty. First quote was for $650 to repair. After I got the service manager involved and had him look at the number of times I've had to bring my jeep in for service on the top he agreed to do the work for free. We will see how long this repair lasts.
