Small hole in new soft top...

I finally got my Bestop HOSS rack system for the hardtop storage, so I put that together and put on my soft top. After using it for a day, I noticed a small hole in just about the center (a little in front of the roll bar). The hole is no bigger than a pen point, but it is enough that you can see sunlight coming through and, therefore, I am sure rain would get in. My first thought was, "damn, now I have to bring it back to the dealer and go through a bunch of haggle BS to get it replaced." The more I thougth of it, though, I thought I might as well just get a little iron-on patch and fix it myself (thanks to someone somewhere else on the forum who had posted that idea).

What do you all think? Do you think I should go through the dealer BS or should I just use my patch method and move on?

Patch it after the warranty is up. The warranty came with the Jeep, you might as well use it. They may let you keep the top you have while they order a new one.

I had to replace mine last year when one of the rivets ripped out. They called me when the new top was in. I switched it myself in the parking lot because I figured it'd be faster than waiting on one of their techs who has probably never done it before. I was in and out in 15 minutes.
