water

they designed the jk to not only drip, but POUR water into the vehicle when it's raining hard and you open the door. all the water from the top of the vehicle pours right into the footwell. not a leak, just really bad design.


what a stupid damn design. what were they thinking? Maybe they need to stop designing jeeps in california.

Well, they know we Jeepers like to get dirty, so they integrated your morning shower into the vehicle entry process. Goddamned brilliant if you ask me.

J/K pisses me off every time it rains. I've taken to parking so that my Jeep leans toward the passenger side and I won't catch the waterfall on entry.

So true. We can put a man on the moon and we can split the atom but we can't design a top that doesn't leak. It's just plain laziness if you ask me.

if your read the top it says that the top is not meant to protect you in case of a rollover it is meant to keep you out of the elements.

they made it soo you can hold a bucket under neath it so if your stranded you can get freshwater

I hear ya brother. I don't remember my old yj dripping water on the floor like that.

I support the military, fiscal responsibility, Hemp, legalization of Marijuana over 21, smaller government and the Bill of Rights.

My favorite part is that on the hardtop it channels the water to hit your thighs so it looks like you just pissed yourself.

At least that's the excuse i use

i have struggled with this since i got my jeep in 08. my best guess is to get .5 in taller springs so the water runs down the back!

2013 rubi axles. 2.5in RK max travel. coast front DS.. rockhard oil pan and tranny skid plate. xrc 8 comp winch mounted on RR XHD

south lake tahoe california.
