my leaking rear window of my hard top

i was wondering if anyone,,,and i mean anyone could help me out!,,,i have a 2007, and i have water leaking inn from the rear window seal(bottom of window), and it always pools up on the subwoofer side. have replaced the gasket,,,but that did not work,,,and the dealership will not guarantee that they can fix it!! does anyone know anything about plastic stiffners that are aplied to the back of the gasket?? to ensure a tighter seal??,,someone please help...i love my jeep too much to let it rust away like that...if anyone knows anything about that plastic stiffner,,,and where i could order one...or if anyone has any better ideas,,,,i will certainly entertain them! and if anyone could email me at

Man I don't know, looking at the rear window gasket on my '08 JKU Rubi--BAM !!

I think it might be better to buy a good rear window, with a complete bottom gasket, from a wrecking yard--thats one complicated gasket !!

Mine is all preformed, with cupped downspouts on the ends-there's nothing normal about that gasket !

I think most of the leak is from the roof, water running down the vertical sides of the window and if the gasket isn't flush/cupped--BINGO leak inside !!

Good luck
