RevCo666 Cool, thanks for posting them... Helps big time Once I get my hard top off and switch to my soft top(in a month or two weather pending), I plan on doing some work on the rear window latches on the hard top. A few months ago I ordered replacements (about 65$ CAN of ebay for the pair) since mine corroded and leaving nasty stains on the glass (which can be removed with Vim cleaner) and little bit of elbow grease.

Grizzly-Chris Doing this on my phone that's why I've had to post the pictures separately.
I can still open the rear tail gate its only the corners of the rear window were I had water leaking in so that's were I've sealed it with rubber sealant.

Grizzly-Chris On the inside on both sides I filled were the rear window meets the tub with a waterproof sealant, ok it's not the prettiest but it worked for me and stopped the water leaking and flooding the floor areas.

Grizzly-Chris No what you mean Revco666 I've driven around Europe in a truck and you have to think so much more when your driving on the other side of the road.
I've took some pictures of my jeep were the water use to leak in, I have to admit I now don't open the rear hardtop window as I don't want the leaks to start again.
I've glued on an extra strip of rubber seal on the bottom of the rear window, so when I then close the rear tailgate door it has a far better waterproof seal.

I was in London back in 2007 for 10 days, then jumped over to Amsterdam for a weekend of madness in between those days. But I was tempted to renting a car while in the UK but thought against it, not because I'm a bad driver(which I am not) but I figure I might forget which is the proper side to drive on by accident which would of led to an accident. Kinda regret it now

Sorted leaking jeep.

I've had a bad water leak problem on my hardtop TJ since I bought it, I seem to have fixed it so hope this may help others.
Both the rear and drivers footwell would flood with water when it rained, I changed the hardtop muckets, I resealed the hardtop to the tub, I sealed the cold air intake under the front cowl, I checked everything and it still leaked in.
It turned out the rain water was running off the roof down the channel by the rear window seal then seeping in we're the rear window meets the tailgate and tub, it then flowed round the rear wheel arch and down into the rear footwell then it filtered under the drivers seat through to the drivers footwell.
I've now fitted an extra rubber strip seal to the bottom of the rear glass with some silicon sealant for good measure.
So far she stayed dry.
