Water resistant!

I have a 2012 Jeep wrangler. It rained overnight and my top was down. Can anyone tell me if the interiors electronics and all parts are water resistant?

no sir they are not.. i would not turn your radio on untill it has time to dry. if you turn the radio on it can and will blow your speakers.. electronics + water = havok.. and also you will want to pull your carpet and let it all air dry..

Great. I know the 200/ jeeps had rubber gaskets around everything. I guess the newer models are too temperamental.

you may get lucky and it may not have gotten wet just let it dry.. and also if your floor board is standing water pull your drain plug

I have never known too many electronics that can stand water. I have thought about a marine radio n speakers..

So far so good. More water than I anticipated. Once I rolled water came from everywhere. Thanks for the info though. Very helpful.
