2007 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited: No Leaks in the Rain
December 19, 2007
It isn't raining in the above photo, but I drove our 2007 Jeep Wrangler Sahara Unlimited home in a severe thunderstorm last night. And I'm here to tell you that the Jeep's soft top did not leak. Not a drop. I arrived at my residence so dry I was thirsty.
It was such a nice surprise I almost forgot how much the Jeep's four-speed automatic transmission frustrates me.
However, this morning, when I walked out to the Jeep, which had been sitting out in the rain all night, the truck's top had its revenge. I opened the driver's door and 15 hours of accumulated water dumped down onto the door panel and driver's seat. No drip rails. I drove to work sitting in a puddle.
Next time I'll climb in the passenger side and climb over the console.
