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.

2 minutes tops. Ha Get it :) Anyhow yes about 2 minutes. Where I live it never stays sunny for long so you get good at it :) That is windows and everything.

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. :beer:

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.:shaking:
