Gonna head to the dealership for the 2nd time for my jeep leaking a good amount of water. I have a soft top an it seems the water like to drip from the top of the door down to the door handle to open the door, the only spot that leaks on both driver an passenger side. Are there any type of product that will help seal the weather stripping on the door so I can stop this from happening? I wouldn't mind if the jeep was a few years old an I had the money to bedline the tub but its not even 6months old. Any help is appreciated

Make sure that the thick rubber gasket its properly seated around the top of window opening. My driver's side gasket was twisted and not properly inserted into the channel. Once I got it in there correctly, no more water.

http://www.jeep-club.net/graphics/ma..._Leaks_All.pdf. Most of this deals with the hardtops, but there is also a section dealing with soft tops.

Mine has the same leak It comes down in a steady stream on me. I had the dealer fix it once and 3 months later it started leakin again. I replaced my top with a bestop super top nx the leak seemed to go away then a month later it's leaking again.

The first time it rained hard mine got around 2-3" of water sitting in my floor board. This time it is no where near as bad. I have checked all the seals popped them out put them back in, ect. An nothin helped have an appointment Thursday with their "water doctor". Mine also lasted around 3 months from the first fix.

Also only leaks when its parked. Driving around maybe a drop or two gets in if that but sit at a stop light or leave it be an the water starts to trickle down the door
