Driving in the rain!
 
I just bought a 2011 Wrangler Unlimited and took the doors and roof off the first day. It's been 3 months now and it's been rained in numerous times. I like the freedom of the Jeep topless and without doors. Just wondering how bad the rain is for the electronics and overall inside of my Jeep? I keep it clean and in the garage at nite...Just wondering????

Would not worry, If it has not happened it will.

If you are going to continue to let it soak, there are 2 things I recommennd.
First pull the carpets either up or out and remove the drain plugs in the floor wells front and back. 2nd, get a cover for your steering column. It is not a good idea to let that get wet.

If you have a neighbor with an unrestored 73 CJ5 that still runs but the body is falling off, consider that this could be yours in an amazingly short time. He probably left his open to the weather too. I think they're too expensive not to take care of.

The column cover was a great investment! So humid here I put it on every night.

I did mine last week, great investment for less than $100.

I've been looking for a column cover and can't find one. Quadratec doesn't seem to have one...at least, not that I could find. Any suggestions?

It just so happens that InfernoGirl makes them. Dirty Mudder is the name of her company and you can find her under the vendor section or just pm her.

That's where I got mine. Worth every penny!

Is there any wiring or stuff that the carpet is hiding when you removed it and bedlined?

Can you post a few pics when you get it back together?

Thanks
