Im not saying it right but mine leaks too. The first time I took it in the service manager said They leak you can let it drive you crazy or you can enjoy your jeep, its not hurting anything. And it never bothered me again, Mine puddles in the passenger floor mat.
Looks like an industrial tote fell on the road and puked on that jeep.
Edit: I hope that's not paint
Even better, it's paint for the road.
A 300 gallon tote of it that fell off a paint truck. That shit ain't EVER coming off.
Cool. Just replace the windows and keep driving. No more waxing.
Couple pics from Northern Maine.
Sure, I could do that. But I find the thought of having to wear a rain jacket IN the car every time it rains to keep my left arm from getting wet stupid on a car I spent nearly $30k for.
Let me give you an example of how stupid the service people are at my dealer. I specifically told them--and they noted it on the service request--that water was coming in from the top of the door and flowing down onto my left arm. The moron who did the service said he did a water test and the water was coming in from the bottom of the door so he replaced the weather stripping along the bottom of the door. Now maybe in their world water goes uphill, but not in mine.
Oh mines not like that maybe a cup or 2 on the passenger floor mat after a hard rain. Nothing on the seats or anything. Good luck
Look closely at the door seal where it touches the base of the windshield. The edge of the frame is not flat there and the door seal can't conform to it. The water crosses over to the inside of the door seal there and follows it down to the bottom of the door. Get a small bulb seal strip and put it on the door frame where the seal tries to touch. OR a new updated door seal.
All of those seals were replaced on my wife's Jeep.
More than once.
Header seal, all doors, still leaked.
Did you compare it to another version of the same year/type to see if there was a defect they were missing?
Bottom line you guys are right it SHOULDN'T do that and it's bs to say "it's a Jeep" or they "all do that" cause they just plain don't.
Mine leaks no matter what. It also leaks from above my head.
Then again, I dont have doors..... or a top so I suppose I should expect that?
First snow in the Cascades on Tuesday, and I had the day off... good chance to get out and see how the new JLU behaves in the snow (only had AWD cars in the past). Further up it was about a foot deep - did great on stock wheels/tires. (I realize it's uncool not to lift and enplumpen out of the gate - but pretty happy as is)
Glamour shot yesterday after some melt and clearing... I love this thing.
Does it have LED headlights and if so did they get coated over with snow? Just wondering. I have LEDs on my 2017 and they do.
And I don’t thing there’s any need to go the steroid route with your Jeep unless you really want to crawl over some boulders
And...congrats on the new ride.
I don't rock crawl, I'm sandy trails, beaches, and dunes. So no lift for me.
I'm especially amused by all the soccer moms in pristine lifted Rubis in my neighborhood.
I want to know how the soft top performs in cold climates. I live where it gets subzero, like the soft top and don't have the room or desire to mess with two tops.
Nah, just the base halogens, also went with halogen for my aux lights - love the simplicity and serviceability and snow melts right off.
NF roads, rocky trails, and snow is where this usually lives... haven't run into a clearance issue yet, though I could see retrofitting a Rubicon suspension at some point for better damping (plenty of cheap take-offs always available). Not a lot of true crawling to be done, at least on this side of the state. Been averaging ~22mpg also, so a nice perk.
I was originally set on finding a hardtop... this one had everything else I wanted, though (base Sport, V6, auto, tow, LSD, tint, XM - oddly hard to find that configuration). Glad it worked out that way, the new top system is really simple and quick to remove and put back on. Has some wind noise but not much, coldest I've had it was 20F so far seemed to hold heat just fine. I do miss a rear wiper in heavy rain/snow, but it's not a deal breaker. My big concern was the dogs damaging or pushing against the plastic windows from inside, but I put in a cargo net from DirtyDog that does a great job as a barrier.
The windows can get brittle in low temperatures, and they start to show wear and tear sooner if the Jeep stays outside in the winter. Heat is not much of an issue, as the Jeep heater is quite strong. Heated seats help if you have them. It will take a bit longer to warm up the interior space. By far the biggest issue is going to be that you don't have a rear wiper or defroster. Gets annoying after a few drives in wintry weather.
