daggo66 I handle the water on the trail cover issue with a broom. I just use the broom to push all the water off the top. I've never gotten any on the inside using this method.

Thanks-I'll have to look into getting one of those tops next.

Right on, thanks. I'll have to look into just throwing one together. Otherwise, know a good place where I can purchase a couple of the zuse bows?

Hendy In that case, I have a great idea for installing a custom made sub-woofer under the rear seat........

I'm in that boat, too.
I just put my top up when I expect rain. No windows or doors, and I just half-way latch the front. Just enough to give the carcover some shape.

Hendy This has the potential to be a great thread!!!

I was thinking about this when I got a bikini top and back deck cover. First time I had to duck to get in because the bikini was FULL of water I thought, this is going to be bad. I pushed the top up from inside and still got drenched.

Since then I have been thinking, the sectional poles you use to put up a dome tent would be great as a prop to prevent pooling. I just haven't come up with an exact plan for this yet, any ideas anyone?

Weatherproof Car Cover Issue

So I have a 4 dr wrangler and since I don't have a garage I bought a weatherproof car cover to pull over my whole jeep so I don't have to constantly worry about the rain. Now my problem is, if I have my top all the way off and I put the cover on, when it rains hard the rain pools down onto the cover towards my seats in the now empty spaces between the roll bars. First off, getting the rain out is a pain when one gallon of water is almost 10 lbs, and if the water sits it permeates through the cover and can get inside the vehicle. So now I have to at least pull the soft top forward (hard to do by yourself) so that it can hold the weight of the water and run off. Anyone know of anything you can purchase/tips and tricks that would help? It almost defeats the purpose of having the top down and owning a cover if you are still constantly worried about the heavy rain. It does great on light rain. The only thing I can think of is to put a meter stick or something longer on my seats and let the cover sit on it to create a tent for the rain to cascade down it onto the ground instead of pool inbetween.
