Thanks soo much for the Tip, I'll give it a try. The wife had one of those BIG insulated mugs filled with ice water, in her 2008 Santa Fe a couple days ago, and it flipped over and spilled in her passenger floor board (wet carpet too) I joked with her- told her to pull the carpet and the floor plugs. she didn't appriciate my humor.

golferguy111 How about the carpet? Is it relatively water resistant?

InfernoGirl Don't hose the dash or steering wheel. The radio and clockspring will be the weak points. A little water won't hurt, but soaking them just isn't good at all. Getting caught in the rain occasionally should be ok, depending on which direction the wind is blowing. If the radio gets wet, don't turn it on until it is fully dry, which may take a few days depending on conditions.

As a side note, I should say that if you are like most of us you will find that it doesn't take too many trips mudding doorless to determine that the clean up is not worth it.... When you spend more time cleaning up and waiting for seats to dry than you do actually wheeling it kinda looses it's appeal...

Waterproof interior?

Hey guys,
I just got an 08 jk Sahara 2 dr, and I was wondering just how weatherproof the interior is. Mine has the nav system, and I was wondering if it is safe to hose down the interior after a day in the mud w/o doors. I just want to make sure that I don't destroy the electronics by getting them wet. Consequently, should I start carrying an emergency cover for the days where i don't have the hardtop on and I get an unexpected shower.

Thanks for y'all's help
