Next, anyone elses leather covered steering wheel have the words "made in china" printing thru the from the back side? I can't get a good pic of it to show but its at the 9o'clock point on mine.

thanks in advance

Hard top here so no help there.. However if the conditions are right, my top leaks at the back of the doors also. Chalked it up to it being a Jeep. All have leaked in some fashion over the years.

As far as the steering wheel, never seen that one. Will look at mine today. Great, now the OCD will be raging..........

yep Im running the trek top too. front corner of both doors leaks like a sub with a screened door. I have to leave the drain plugs out of the floors to keep the footwells from filling with water. you can cut and put some extra weather stripping up near the front to help. Not sure what generation you have but my door surrounds are metal rods that can be bent to make them fit better. doesnt help much when you "reset" them into a tree though .

No. OEM top on mine and no leaks. There was a time a couple of months after I bought the Jeep that the passenger side started leaking at the rear of the front door. Dealer replaced the seal under warranty and I've never had a leak on it since.
