Hardtop leaks is killing me.

#1
I never had a jeep with a hardtop before. I just bought a used one from 2015 Sahara for my 2015 Hard Rock and it's leaking crazy on both front side and passenger B pillar. I took the freedom top and adjusted it again and did it the same as people recommended. Do the passenger side first then the driver side, but still leak. Somebody recommended not to tight the two rear knobs, so I did the same, but water all over my rear top. Any tips or tricks? Thank you!

You might try looking at the “Austin Jeep People” FB group page. They have a pinned thread that is pretty detailef, addressing this issue. I have a soft top, so I can’t offer any firsthand help. Good luck! Sounds like it can be a PITA!

Thanks, I just bought the MOPAR freedom seal kit and replaced most of all the old seals and reinstalled it. Let's see when the next rain comes. I keep my finger crossed.

Hopefully that will work. I jinxed myself this weekend and poked a hole in my soft top window at the Palo Duro Challenge :(. I’m thinking super glue and Gorilla tape patching inside and out.

I have a '08 JKU soft top that has two small holes where the Sunrider hinge is located. Big enough to see daylight, but thank God, small enough that water doesn't pour into the jeep. I think the last owner was an @sshat who didn't know how to flip the top back with care.

Anyways, I found this company that seems to make a legit patch kit and this winter (I live in MI), when I take the soft top off and put the hard top on, I'm going to attempt a repair.
