|Wattapunk||I wouldn't recommend exposing the dash electronics to any water, even topless in a rain shower. As many threads about electrical issues related to corroded contacts, grounding issues, shorts, why open yourself up to that. The dash is not waterproof, water will find its way through cracks/crannies to the electronics. You should at least trash bag it if you plan on hosing the interior or parking it topless with potential storms.|

If I sunk a jeep in a lake, I'd be hella pissed my thread was deleted. That's Tucker Max stupid and worth owning up to for the sake of other people's enjoyment. My .02c
While daddy may have taken away his jeep, he has that story for life. Remember that one time I drove a jeep off a dock 15 beers deep said no one ever but this guy.

I sprayed a bit too much around my steering wheel once when washing my Jeep, and wiped out my clockspring. Be careful of that too.

What a shame, beer 30 + chicks dig it stories always turn out the best.

I can't recall the exact reasons, I think they just got rid of it because people were like going on and on about it forever, maybe he asked if it could be deleted/removed. I got to read it back when I first joined up here but I remember a few months later it went away.

Any particular reason his epic adventures can't be viewed?

|DF Jeep||Had my 08 auto, caught with roof down n no doors, filled up to the door sills, cup holders over flowing and wheel jack space full. Pulled the carpet, floor plugs pulled the soft top up (to create a wind tunnel) and drove it up the highway to dry the seats. 24 hrs later you'd never know.|

|PStov98TJ||Water up to the dash definitely has the potential to do some damage. There's a breather for the tranny right at the bottom of the door (it's on top of the shifter under the console). Unless you extend the breather then water past that is unadvised.|

|domonicplague||Thanks for the responses guys i just wanna kno if i can have water up to the bottom of the dash|

|adkjoe||I've had 6" of water under my feet in the driver and passenger side floor, with the cup holders completely full etc... Everything was fine. However, I would not test the limits if you can help it.|

Left mine out for over a month with no top. No carpets either. No problems other than the radio would only turn on and change volume for 6 months after. The CD stuck in it was Tom Pettys "full moon fever" so I wasn't complaining lol.
However if you let them sit out in the rain all the time and water gets in the steering column, it will not want to start sometimes. 2 buddies of mine learned that the hard way. Cover that stuff up with Saran Wrap.

|Coljag||So far I have hosed out the inside of mine twice with no problem apart from the radio not being able to change stations until it dried out. However I did have all the carpets out and canvas seat covers on, seats got damp but not soaking wet. Off roading with top off gets inside of vehicle dirty/dusty/muddy/sandy.|

|Squid90||It entirely depends on how you run it. If you pull the carpet and your drain plugs and add waterproof seat covers such as the one bestop has then it can stay open to the weather. Just as long as you cover up the dash|

|mudmagnet63||All of it, but some damage may occur.|
