vitodivita The only way for me to be doorless for 5-6 months out of the year is to throw the soft top up when it's raining. Last night I went for a ride and it was raining pretty hard, but the soft top kept me dry. If you have oversized tires, your experience may vary.

If you have any intentions of taking the doors off and leaving them off for rain like I do, carpets have to be removed. It's too much of a hassle to dry them

Old Dogger My doors and top will be off all summer long. I know for sure that I won't melt and as for the interior, mine has always dried. When mine is parked out side I put a piece of plastic over the seat. Setting in a gushy seat is no fun, but you do cool off. After all, a big part of the fun is having the doors off and even better the top also!

R4D4R Try it with the windows down then multiply your wetness by 3

Drmad7 I've done it on the freeway and only got slightly wet as long as I was driving straight into the rain. When I made turns, it just came right in. But I was only slightly wet on the left side. I had 33s and a 2.5" lift.

$teve-o If it's only lightly raining, you'll get a lot wet. If it's really raining, you get even wetter. But It's just water. The worst part is the water that gets on the inside of the windshield... that is why I keep a small (2'x3') towel in my center console.

X2, Wheels with 3:75 backspacing, 315 tires and doors off will make for a very muddy run off road in the rain. O, I'm not talking about THE MUD ON YOUR WRANGLER, BUT RATHER THE MUD ON YOU.
It is a experience that you will never forget!

thinkxingu I'm more interested in what happens while I'm driving!

whetstone When my jeep was new I left the doors off in a light rain, hard top on. I found out the hard way that a straight down rain is channelled straight into the front floorboards...

Chadouken Ha! My girlfriend's parents just came for a visit and we took them up for a drive in the mountains north of Boise. We took the doors off and had the top down. All of a sudden it began to pour on us for about 5 - 10 minutes. Since we were off the pavement, we couldn't go very fast, and we got a few drops on us, but not too bad. I've heard that at faster speeds most of the rain blows past you, but I haven't tested it out yet.

Doorless in Rain?

I don't think I've ever seen this discussed: assuming a light/normal rain, what happens without doors? I'm thinking that it gets warm enough for the summer here in NH to take them off and use the top when needed, but does rain get sucked in?
