Wet...

Im kinda just venting here, but here we go. My jeep sat in the rain all day yesterday with the soft top up. When i got in the jeep this morning, the whole roll bar, seat belt, and floor are drenched. Im pretty sure that i put the top on correctly because i have done it a couple hundred times. Does anyone else have this problem with the soft top leaking? Or am i missing somewhere else that leaks? Now i have to take all of the carpet out to dry and let it air out while I'm in florida for a week. I find it hard to believe that all soft tops leak, because if a top from the factory leaked and the jeeps on the lot smelled this bad, i doubt that they would sell any. Now for those of you that have a Beatop Supertop NX, does yours do this? (I have this top). And for the mopar top people does yours leak?
Thanks - Alex

I have a 2012 JKU Sahara soft top and zero leaks. Take it down and put it up again. Run water on it with a hose and see if you can find a leak. Hopefully nothing fell on your top or a neighbor's cat hasn't clawed a hole in it.

The good news is that replacement tops are relatively cheap. I am replacing my TJ's for around $400.

I've had my 12' JKU Sahara for about 1 1/2 years with factory soft top and no leaks what so ever.

The only time my 2013 OEM Soft Top leaks is if I don't seat the top correctly when I put it back up. But, I know a lot of people say that a leaking top is a "Jeep thing."

My 2013 factory soft top leaked some on the driver side rear window near the back when I washed it the other day which i was a little surprised that it did. It is a garage ornament on rainy days though so I can't say if it does in the rain or not. My 05 TJ never leaked in the rain though.
