InfernoGirl Um, this is a really old thread. It would probably be best if you did the hosing yourself and reported what you find. Likely the top isn't installed properly. If you can figure out where it's leaking from, then we can help you fix it.

cdridgley Same problem here, let us know what you find out after you hose it down.

Well .... I guess this is how I would do it. Pretty technical huh ...
That's EXACTLY how it's done in a shop. When I had the rear window in my T/A convert re-done, that's how the shop checked it.

Adam_Esq I have the same problem with my '98 Sahara. I have only noticed the problem with my hard top on; doesn't seem to happen with soft top, although I've only owned it since October, and only run it with the soft top for about 2 months. My problem areas are the floor behind the driver's seat, and a little bit in the rear cargo area, and it seems to happen when it sits outside in heavy or extended rain; not from driving in rain.

I'm at a loss - can't find any obvious gaps when the top is on, and the plugs are intact.

scottutk5 I had the same problem last week after 3 days of rain. All of my carpet was wet in the back, however my fllormats were dry on the top side and my seats were dry. The largest amount of water was directly behind the driver's seat. i cannot find were the water is coming from.
