I'm a little puzzled by all this.

My top has only ever dripped once or twice... Right at the front seam, and one of those times was when parked overnight in a tropical storm.

Common?

I dunno. Not an issue here.

If I were having problems I might push downward on the panels to try and unload the screws before attempting to unthread them.

Ha ha, nice to see the old thread pop up.

A few years later the 12 WK2 is at ~80k.

And the 16' JKU is at only ~36k.

I'm glad to see you're leaning towards the V6. That's what I would have suggested for a couple of reasons.

The Cherokee sold today is nothing like the Cherokee of many moons ago.

I still can't explain why my wife is still on her original battery in the 2012 WK2 when mine went already on the 2016 JKU.

Different battery?
