Is sunroof flush with the roof when shut? If not it needs to be reset.

I guess this seems to be a common issue for 05's. But, I cleared mine and haven't had an issue since. Might be good to check the other drains around the Jeep too, just incase.

Ill check the drains when I get a chance. I'm pretty sure the sunroof sits flush cause it only leaks when it rains heavy for about an hour Any less and it won't leak
