Rain Protection

Hey there everybody

I currently have an OEM soft top and I love it because I can just put it up whenever it rains and it keeps the inside dry-ish. But, my soft top has been slowly developing problems and I'm looking around for new alternative for something to keep my jeep dry in the rain. I've looked at some of the covers but I believe you can't drive with them on, does anyone have any options or things they use? I run topless year round and I want something that will last and keep me dry! Thanks!

What kind of door do you have? I run my soft top in a bikini top style. I have full doors so I just roll the windows up on the doors and flip the back seat forward. It gets a lil misty but it works in a crunch. I'm not sure there is a foldable option except a soft top like oem.

Since you are located in arizona, I imagine you see a lot of rain and need a really good, perfectly sealed top

But really... they make things called emergency tops that will do the job for the occasional rain storm. (you can drive in them)

This is just what I was looking for! I run no doors, top, or windows year round, so closing the door and rolling up the windows isnt exactly an option. Thanks for the help!

I personally would not get the pavement ends emergency top. It's crap and won't keep your jeep dry, considering the top doesn't cover the cab adequetly and why they give you a rain poncho. I returned mine and got this instead, Nikwax Tent and Gear Solarproof Waterproofing Spray at REI.com. I sprayed it on my top and even during the most downpour with hail and very strong wind, I got no water in my jeep. I had my safari top ad mopar cab cover with this and no issues. Just my .02 though.
