My hard top leaks almost every time it rains. it holds about 1/2 inch of water in the passenger floor board. pulled the carpet now i just pull the drain plugs. but it is annoying when you pay 30k for a jeep and it leaks.

This is what I deal with every time now when it rains or even when snow melts on top of my jeep.

I had a similar problem with leaks. Heres the link to my saga. http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f176/...ir-jk-1290357/
Happy ending- I got it replaced with a 2012. No 'real' leaks except "maybe" twice a year with the hardtop I get a little spritz over the dash. I only use the hard top in winter and found that since its a 3 piece top, things shift a bit over time. After researching here on the forum I use 'Syl Glyde' brake lube on all the rubber around the two pieces of the hard top up front. If I get a leak first thing I do is un-latch it make sure the two sides are well seated and re latch it in the Owners manuel order= right front, left front, Center front. then Back right, back left, back center and then tighten down the two screws through the sound bar. that usually does it. IF not I pull the two tops, clean the rubber really good and reapply the Syl Glyde. That always seems to solve it.

Glad to hear it Reelworks. Sent you a PM a month ago and wanted to know how you made out and to thank you for sharing your saga, which provided me with the info I needed to get a replacement Jeep. Thanks and glad to hear that your new Jeep doesn't have issues.
