Soft Top - NO LEAKIE!

I must say I am impressed as hell.

I have owned my JK (soft top) for about 3 weeks now. I went out and got it douched in mud.

I put the lawn sprinkler under the jeep for about 30 minutes to loosen up the underside - then got the pressure washer out. I blasted every angle of the jeep to clean it with the pressure washer.

No water leaked inside. I was so impressed. I would still like to get a hard top, I think they look better - but I'm not about to pay $2k + for one.

those really don't test it. Those are just too brief to expose any leaks. The real test is to have it sitting in a parking lot during a long torrential storm. Any leaks will suddenly be revealed.

Are you for real? Mine leaks a decent amount, and by decent I mean alot.

Every time I wash it, it leaks.

Every time it downpours, it leaks.

It's just part of owning a Jeep, give it some time...

Three weeks is not enough time to say that it doesn't leak. It is likely more a matter of where and when.

At least- so far so good. Good luck.

One year, three months. 44,000 miles.

No leaks!! Even take it through the carwash occasionally, still no leaks.
