It is good to see the system worked for you! Was it much trouble? Did the dealer work with you? I'm guessing the dealer must be a good one?

Chrysler was the easy company to work with. They told me it would be 2 weeks before I heard anything and the next day they called and told me pick out my new jeep. They even bought the lift and running boards on the truck and gave me stricker price plus parts.

The dealer messed around for a week before they got the jeep on their lot, I think they were mad that I did not buy it off their lot. I hope I don't ever have to go through this, If anyone does make sure you have all your receipts and make the dealer give you a rental car if your jeep is in the shop for a few days. This makes put it in the system about the rental (was told this helped also and being 3 times the number of times to dealer then the lemon law)

I wouls suggest you not talk **** if you dont know all the facts!

Slow down, buddy. I wasn't talking smack. I was asking what kind of deal you got on your Jeep out of curiosity. I was also saying that maybe the previous owner was a whiner over something that may not have actually been that bad. You never said it had water standing in the floor. I wasn't dissing you in any way, and I apologize if the the post read that way to you. It wasn't intentional.

EDIT: My bad completely. I didn't realize that you had your own Jeep bought back. I read it as you had just purchased a Jeep that someone else had done a buy back on, and was now fixed. That'll totally confuse things!

Dude...read my last post! I had totally misinterpreted the OP's original post. I never was calling the OP a whiner. I did not realize the OP was the one who did the buy back. I thought he had bought a JK that had been bought back and then repaired. The whiner comment I made was about the folks who buy a soft top Wrangler and then complain non stop about a little water leak (not a floor board full) or road noise.

Again, I apologize for the misunderstanding. It was my fault for totally misreading the OP's post, and for poorly wording my post to look like it was directed at the OP. I was actually wishing the OP luck with his new Jeep, but I can see how it could be read a different way.

I have a soft top and they had to replace it. Then my header bow cracked. Now, it's all good =)

The 2008 Jeep Wrangler is not so much an SUV as it is an experience. It's slow and loud, handles poorly, has crummy interior materials and features doors that provide virtually no crash protection. But when it comes to off-road performance, the Wrangler is simply the best choice available.

I have a 2011 and have been to the dealer four times now for my doors leaking. They have replaced both door seals and I still have water coming in.

my 08 t-tops leak a little bit when I'm driving in rain, but the actual hardtop is a tight seal. Maybe just add some more weatherstripping?

I've got a dual topped 2010 JKU and the first day I had it in rain I had a nice sized puddle over the Nave (RAAAAGGGEE!) I did some reading here on the forums and found some members talking about a lubricant they use on the freedom tops that solved their issue. I solved mine by removing, and reinstalling both panels just making sure the right side was clamped in nice and tight first, then installed the left side, saving the speaker bar knobs for last. During removal those are the first to go so I figured they should be the last during the installation process. Since then it's been dry, the soft top however is whole other story.

A lot of these tops leak. Mine leaks too.

But there are people on this forum that swear up and down that if you have leaks, it's your fault for not installing the panels properly.

I used to leak in my TJ in the same place. It happened after I lowered the windshield. I always wondered if a seal was broken after that.
