Rain Proofing

So I have a 1997 Jeep Wrangler, and I just recently got it. I really want to make the jeep to become rain-proof - as in if it rains with the top off, it doesn't have any affect to the jeep. There are some jeeps in my neighborhood that don't have doors, no top down, etc at all times of the day even when it does rain. I'm taking out my carpet and taking out the doors in the jeep very soon, and I have water-proof seat covers already. I just want to know what else I can do to avoid any problems when it rains without the top or door on the jeep?

*I posted this in a similar previous thread. You may get more ideas there...*
Take the carpet out, and either do a spray in bedliner or roll on yourself... Then get one of these New pricing on Dirty Mudder Column Covers..


That should take care of just about everything....

I actually run a safari top just so i don't have to mess with all of that. But I miss the sun... Oh well, trade off.

Spray the tub with Raptor liner and remove the drain plugs. It rains daily in the mountains here in Hawaii. I'll get off of work and have puddles of water on the floorboard until I level out and it drains. No issues and I've had the bikini top and doors off since May.
