Soft Top Replacement?
 
Okay...I have a 2007 JK with a soft top that leaks like a sieve during pretty much any kind of rainstorm. I live in North Texas so the summer heat is pretty intense. As a result the top is getting kinda faded but is otherwise in good shape. But I am getting really tired of getting a bath every time I try to drive in the rain. Any thoughts or suggestions on whether or not I should break down and buy a new rag top? If so, do ya'll have any input on what's the best new canvas top to buy?

Bestop makes the factory top and you can buy just the skin if the hardware is in good shape. Option 2, people sell complete OEM tops for cheap on the site/CL.

Well wheres it leaking? If the fabric is no longer waterproof, youre going to need lots of duct tape or a new top. If its leaking from the seals or poor adjustment, then fix it......

Hmmmm...I never thought about just replacing the canvas. The hardware is in perfect shape so maybe that's something to think about. As for the leaking itself, the windows leak badly on the front half of both driver/passenger windows. It used to just occur during really hard/prolong rain, but now it's pretty much every time it rains, regardless of the amount or length of time.
