The fastest I ever did it was 6.2 seconds. Oh wait, that was something else. What was the question again?

Just the top or total up including windows? If caught in a pop-up shower I can throw the top up in less than 2 minutes. Side & rear windows, if it's raining hard, I leave em out cuz I'd just get soaked putting them on.

I used to be able to do it in 2 minutes but my top is so f'ed up now I don't think I could. My zippers are full of mud and warped all to hell so if I actually had to put them in I'd be screwed. My top is all moldy and gross and I'm not even sure if it would go down let alone back up.

If I ever get my top down again and it starts raining I'd just see it as a nice (a well needed) opportunity to wash the inside of the Jeep.

Caught with top down in downpour put the top up in 1min out the door and I'm almost 60. Whew. Around the corner was a car wash pulled in and put the sides on and the back. Then it stopped raining.

I've noticed about ~55+ mph seems to keep the rain out of the cabin.

I can definitively say, I can get the top (no side or back) up in a lot less than 30 secs, all tucked and everything

How do I know? My wife EOS is convertible and it took me half the time it took her when a storm rolled through last year.
