Drain plugs or wet vac for standing water and micro fiber/highly absorbent towel the rest. Then place a fan in a position so as to blow air over the wet areas overnight with all the doors open. Do not close it up while the carpet is still wet. Works like a charm every time. Moving air is the key.|

This happened to me last week. I had on soft doors overnight but they were not flush. Jeep floor filled with water but not seats or dash. I pulled the carpets and hung them in the garage then put on a heater fan. Given that it rained all week here I did t want the risk musty carpets . I wiped the floor down and got the water out of the crevices . I even put a fan in the car just to be sure and put the heat on in the car. I then hung the rugs out on the next sunny day.
I was told it was overkill but Just because its a jeep doesn't mean you don't have to respect your vehicle. It's a land animal not fish!

Here in Mass, I missed the t-storms by about 10 minutes yesterday.
Had the Jeep in the garage, my hard top lowered, and was putting in the screws when the storms kicked off.

|techflork||once you take that carpet out I guarantee you will never ever ever put it back in. Try it|

Caught in rain
I noticed the above title and I thought someone was posting about my motorcycle ride home from work today. At least it washed the bugs off my face shield.

|speedyrev||Pull drain plugs if there's a puddle. Shop vac carpet and seats then sit it in the sun.|

I'm not sure what you can do for the next few days to dry it out (short of pulling the drain plugs and using a wet-vac to suck as much as you can out of the carpet)...last I saw, we in the DFW area have a pretty good chance for rain through Wednesday.

|NCJeepin||I'd just let it air out for a while. When it's sunny, take off the top and leave it sitting out. Take shammy and soak up any sitting water.|

Caught in rain
So I was unaware I was going to be caught in the rain. I had the doors off and only and emergency top on. The inside is soaked from the poring rain!
What should I do to help dry it?
