just my luck

So I've had my top and doors off all summer long and have managed to not get rained on yet. That was till yesterday.it was sunny when I left my house to help a friend move his stuff then about a hour in it pours out of nowhere. All I can think is its 103 out and its raining? So it goes on for a good hour then stops, I think this is my chance to get.out of here and get home before it rains again so I pull my drain plugs and leave. Nope halfway home it rains again. At a stop light a jk pulled beside me and offers to let me use his garage till the rain lifts but I thought the damage is already done . I finally made it home and dry the jeep out a bit. This morning I thought I would back it out of the garage and let the sun do some work on drying it out. Nope lol just went outside and its pouring once again lol I cant win.

This sounds exactly like what happened to me. I thought I would be clever and leave just the rear window out. I took the back seat out a long time ago, so I don't really care if the back gets wet. Long story short, I forgot to roll my windows up one night after getting to work...I have now decided carpet is just too much trouble. Even with the drain plugs already out, there was still an inch or so of water in some places.

I don't know how much a set of carpets from an 05 TJ would be worth, but I'll eventually sell them or scrap them.
