best way to air out jeep?
 
so we got a ton of rain in MD the past couple days. i had my doors off through a couple of the storms. my seats are soaked and have puddles in the tub. i dont care about the floor, only worry is keeping my butt dry. anyone have a solution to dry the seats quickly? i have them covered with a garbage bag which works for now

hair dryer and patience.

Pull the plugs and park it in the sun (the next time you see sun) topless and let them dry. Recline the fronts pretty far so that they dry in the hinged area.

A good shop vac would help, or rent a steam cleaner

x2 on the vacuum idea; and take the garbage bags off when you're not sitting in it so it dries out quicker.

Pull the plugs, put some goggles on and drive really fast.

1. Remove Seats
2. Place In Oven
3. Turn On Oven

Add a BIG FAN to all of the above.

Or close it up as best you can and put a dehumidifier inside, taking proper precautions of course.

small leaf blower, or this:Air Force Master Blaster Car Dryer
Bought to dry the Vette. No towel scratches. Now use on all cars. Outstanding for motor cycles and engine bays. Heats ambient temp aprox 20 degrees. Thaws frozen locks.

I use a wet dry vac to get the water out then a fan and leaf blower. Ill leave a fan going all night. If you put your top back on be sure to get rack a window or all the moisture will stay in the jeep.

best thing is to not let em get rained on to begin with... I wrapped the seat in an army poncho as soon as I saw a cloud in OK, but **** DOES happen-

wrap the whole seat in a black lawn n leaf trash bag, seal the bottom up as best you can, cut a hole by the headrest and run a blowdryer into the bag near the bottom somewhere so the air vents out the top hole.

It's macgyver as all heck, but it dried my seat in about an hour. just gotta seal up the bottom fairly well, I stuffed towels under the seat :)

or you could move down to the mojave... haven't had a wet seat issue since I moved down from oklahoma in JAN ;)
