Just put a lot more air in the driver side tires. No charge for this advice.

Use your hand to swipe away the water. Maybe wear a bag over your head.

I plan on installing some hydraulic jacks on my front axle. When I park I will engage the jack, thereby lifting the front of the Jeep up about one foot higher than the rear. I think this should fix the water drainage when opening door problem. Look for me to be selling these in the near future for only $1,299 shipped.

Why not use a squeegee to wipe the water off? The California Water Blade may be a good option.

It sits in the channel above the door, not on the roof itself.

You can put your hands (if you don't mind getting them wet/dirty) on the top corner and push hard twice. This actually rocks the Jeep, and that water drains off. Seriously.

Or, don't stand inside the doorway when you first open it. That way, you won't get wet.

I'm just here for the gasoline. --Max

OP, now that you've suffered through all of the "humor" from these guys, I found this link posted in another forum. It appears that Jeep may have new weather stripping to solve your problem:

Concern: Water leak from the top of the front doors. Water is from rain/carwash.
Cause: The door seal weatherstrips (attached to the doors) were not ideally designed and need to be replaced. Revised parts are available.
Resolution: Replace both door weatherstrips. They are very easy to replace.
Details: The Jeep Wrangler top system (softtop and Freedom Top equipped) is designed to repel normal rain and carwashing only. Do not expect it to seal against high pressure water.

A serious response

I found shoving a plastic water (or whatever) bottle between the top of door surround and the soft top (right where the stream occurs) will redirect the rain water elsewhere. I just leave a bottle up there all the time (except when the top is down, duh) its like having another cup holder.

Actually, anything that fits in there and pushes up on the soft top will work.
