That figures!!!!

took my hard top off and left it at the lake with my family mom and sister at the campground, i go fishing with my buddies and come home with my dog.

get woken up my thunder. is it just my luck that when there is only a 10% chance and i decide to leave the top off that it would freakin pour? Its freaking 10%ing all over me!!!


weather man!!!







***just needed to rant, hopefully the rant mode is off***

It just pulls out a coupe snaps under the seats. BTW happens to me with the Jeep so much my friends all say my Jeep controls the weather, and anytime the soft top is on and down it is going to rain

I'd only give it a 6......Link to the Bestop site and the trail cover would have pushed it over the top.

sorry to hear of the bad luck.
NEVER trust the weather man, or you'll just end up pissing in the wind.
(as you've seen)

my advise is to take a tarp with ya next time you go camping without your top. they're inexpensive, compact, and do the job fine.

Doesn't cover the doors? I guess that's what the ponchos are for?

I almost did the same thing yesterday. Fortunately was pretty beat so ended up taking the car lucky for me since it rained - I think it was only 10% here too.

Im tempted to get some waterproof seat covers, though so far I have been too lazy. Also cant help but wonder, how water resistant is the dash and all the electronics it contains?
