2007 Jeep Wrangler Sahara Unlimited: Trail-Rated, Not Rain-Rated

Jeep Wranlger's Wet Seat - photo by Warren Clarke

Uncharacteristically, we've been having lots of wet weather here in Los Angeles recently. "Storms of the century" and such. I had the Jeep Wrangler last night, and drove home in pouring rain. There were no problems with leaks on the drive home, but this morning -- after having parked the Wrangler outdoors to face yet more of the wet stuff -- I awoke to find that the Jeep's front passenger seat was pretty soaked.

There was also some rain on the steering wheel.

I could see water still dripping from one leak near the windshield, but there must've been another one, or the seats wouldn't have been as wet as they were. The Jeep's soft top was zipped and locked pretty securely, by the way, so I don't think user negligence was to blame.
