Is it normal for Freedom Tops to "sweat" if there is moisture build-up in the car? I have two dogs and when the windows get fogged up when it's snowing, the Freedom Top panels seem to "sweat." I would assume this is fairly normal, but I just wanted to see if anyone else has encountered this.

Have not experienced what you have described in my 2014 JKUS.

Is your HVAC on recirc?

Sounds like that might be the issue.

Top is not insulated. The HVAC is on recirc, but this only happens when I have wet, panting dogs in the car with the heat on, when it's snowing.

I have a waterproof cover on the back seat, but dogs shake and get the interior damp so there is some moisture sitting in the car.

Turn the A/C on and switch from recirc to 'fresh air'.

Condensation on the inside of a vehicle is a sign of moisture inside the vehicle. Wranglers are known for poor seals soaking the carpets. But no doubt wet dogs would qualify as wet, breathing, carpet-clad moisture sources. Get rid of the moisture sources to get rid of the condensation issues. Short answer; No, it shouldn't be happening, under normal conditions.
