Its just rain, its just water.

I think every jeep owner just needs to drive doorless / topless in a good rain storm to get over the ridiculous fear of rain.

When you are driving even in really hard rain you barely even get wet, sure when u stop you do but so what ? Its just water, bit of rain is certainly not going to damage anything.

It gets wet, leave it live with it drive it it dries.

Think motorcycle, do bikers get all worried when it rains ? Nope just keep riding, bike dries, to me the jeep is no different.

I couldn't really go doorless through a rain storm at highway speeds, my 35's will throw whatever is on the road into my cab. I'm not worried about myself getting we, but I will have two girls riding in the back seats of my unlimited so I don't know how rain at 70mph+ will be for them... Its really not about getting wet it would be getting pelted for the back seat.

That's the downside of a hardtop. Can't carry it with you to put up in a rain storm. Get a soft top, trek top, remove the hardtop when you get to your destination, accept that you may get wet.

Yeah Ive been looking into getting the offroad heros fastback soft top just need to see if I can sell my hardtop. I may tes running my front two hardtops with all four doors and the Pavement Ends emergency top on the back at 60mph. I dont see this working out too well but its worth a test. If it will run like that I may not ever get a soft top

No room lost inside the Jeep.
