Stuck in the rain with the top down

Hello all,
First day with my new 2013 Sahara and of course the top is down. I tried to beat the dark skies. They won, I got caught in a major thunderstorm and had to struggle to put up the new top up on the side of the highway. Cloth seats which are pretty wet at the moment. Is there anything electric I should worry about or are these JK's pretty sealed up?

The electric is pretty good. Best thing you can do with wet electrical, don't use it until it's dry. Seats will bry pretty quickly, carpet can be a hassle. Lift it up and get a fan moving some air. Check the pull out tub under the rear mat for water (pull the plastic and check the metal tub underneath. Also check your jack area. it's a good problem to have though, you won't see a Honda Pilot with this issue

Pull all the plugs in the floor. Rugs pull out easily and hang dry. When this happened to me (completely filled cup holders) I put the top up, no windows no doors, and drove up the highway. The seats were completely dry by the time I got to work.

I've been busted a few times by Mother Nature, as stated pull the plugs and get a good wet vac to suck up what you can from the carpet. I parked out in the Florida sun and that dried up what was left.
