Yes, It is a hard top. There is some evidence of water coming down the inside of the glass, but not is large amounts, and the lines are all across the glass, more concentrated under the wiper motor. However there is never any wet carpet anywhere but in the corners. I also find water inside the fold in the bottom weather strip.
There is a cutout in the center of the third brake light mount. And the tire carrier doesn't "seal" tight against the tailgate. I'm going to take the spare and the mount off and check that out as a possible water entry point.
My long term solution is to Rhino line the interior, and then just not worry about it. Until then its a corrosion hazard.
