Rained in my New Jeep
Well it rained last night and everything is wet. I have a 2013 Unlimited Sahara. With leather seats etc?? What should I do? I'm afraid it will smell.

:wavey: Welcome to the forum!!!

Make sure you get it dried out hopefully it is sunny today. Take a good leather cream and do all the leather. It will restore the natural oils and give a good cleaning. If any smell should crop up get a big bottle of Fabreeze and spray it around.

The carpet will need a good drying and the only way to make that smell good is above.

Fresh air and sunlight will be your friend!!!!

If I leave my top down overnight, I always put my jeep cover on in case of a brief pop up overnight shower we sometimes get off the ocean here in FL.
When top is off, always assume it will rain.

Bummer - i'm sure there's a thread that will help. Sorry, I don't have a link to share.

Thank you for all your responses. Everything dried out well except the navigation screen has moisture in it. I just hope it dried out. Wish they made it marine safe.

Check the warranty on the navigation screen. Doubt that a passing shower should be able to ruin it. Really disapointing if you ask me. I would skip the leather cream, they seem to change the characteristics of the factory leather finish. Just dry it out in the sun, or run a fan into the cockpit and get it dry. Mild soap and water has always worked best for me on my car interiors, any product usually will make it greasy or remove the factory finish. Good luck.

I'm happy to say the screen dried out completely although I will not be letting the inside get wet again. I wish they would have made it waterproof so I didn't have to worry about that. I am looking for a softtop to keep on it most of the time since I ride around with the front panels off daily. If i could take the hard top off By my self i would have that off all the time. Shoot that's why I bought it.
