My top don't leak!

Had an 05 2-door softtop half door TJ, was leak free. Seeing posts about JK Sunrider leaks had me a bit worried. Bought 2011 Rubicon 2 door soft top half door May 22. Drove through an hour of torrential rain today (cars pulled off road waiting it out) and JK dry as a bone through it all inside (checked everywhere). Does pour water into footwell off half door upper gutter line when door open though, but, it is a Jeep! Loved my TJ even though it was a 4 banger auto. Love my 6-speed Rubi even more!

I thought the leak issue was more to do with the hard tops.

I have a 4 door with a soft top & my wife has a 2 door with a hard top & both of them leak. Both have been to the dealer several times for repair & they still leak.

Have a soft top & it leaks. I just deal with it. It's not a big deal to me. Hubby has a Miata & and his soft top leaks a little too.

Right above the door handles. Wasn't that bad before. Washed her at the pay & spray The other day & it was worse. I know there was a specific post about diagnosing the leaks but I haven't looked for it yet.

Mine leaks mainly from the L/F corner of the soft top. It drips down into the side window defroster that is on the the corner of the dash,runs down into the defroster ducting & drips onto the floor from the bottom of the dash where the speaker is. Sometimes it does it on the right side too. Also drips occasionally on the center of the dash above the radio. My wife's hard top leaks on the center of the dash too & sometimes onto the back seat.
