  1. water on passenger floor after rain

    Well, if it's fixed I would say that's awesome! ... and, honestly, if it saved them from unbolting the windshield, applying more butyl and replacing the whole thing that might actually be better. If you know "what" he did to the seal (other than the RTV around the plugs) it would be great to...
  2. Issue Bulletin: Wind Noise from Lower A Pillar

    The one you posted is a pretty common one for sure. Glad to see an official acknowledgement from FCA. My wind noise was not coming from the windshield, but from the rearview mirror attachment to the door, but it took a LOT of effort to find it because I (and the techs) would swear it was the...
  3. water on passenger floor after rain

    I also think it's funny that the service tech wrote "cow" (instead of cowl) on the diagnosis form multiple times. 🤣 If there is a cow near the windshield, no wonder we all have leaks!
  4. water on passenger floor after rain

    That's positive news so far, Greg! Now, hopefully sean.lunch has the same outcome for the passenger side (sounds very likely he will) and we can put this to bed! It also looks like you got a slightly newer version of this part, the last one I saw was "-AB" and you got "-AC." I wonder if there...
  5. water on passenger floor after rain

    I would agree if you aim a power washer just right you could get water into any vehicle most likely. I've had 3 JL/JK's and never had any of them leak from a car wash or even when I wash it myself with a power washer, and I purposely aim for the door seams in order to get all the soap out. It's...
  6. water on passenger floor after rain

    Good thought, although mine for sure is door seal related. Only happens when it rains and I can see water coming down the A pillar. (See my first post with pics). But, all ideas are welcomed!
  7. water on passenger floor after rain

    I've never had that happen on any of my Jeeps (JK or JL). That's a problem!
  8. water on passenger floor after rain

    Most of the gaskets and seals use butyl (i.e. MOPAR 68027813AA). Some don't use any at all and are held on with pins (like the part of this seal you can see on the B-Pillar). My guess is there is a combination of both for this one since it spans the entire length of the windshield and (I...
  9. water on passenger floor after rain

    Those pics of the floor are exactly where the water comes in on my JL. I tried to find the mucket seal part on mopar's parts site and was having some issues. I reached out to customer service and was told that the mucket is actually part of the cowl seal that runs under the windshield. Hard...
  10. water on passenger floor after rain

    I have this same problem. 2018 JLUR. I frequently park on a driveway that is a 10% grade and my Jeep faces up-hill, not down, and the leak still happens. Definitely anxious for a fix. I have tried comparing the seals on the driver and passenger sides, but no luck. The only thing I have...
  11. Purchasing my first Jeep...and need some advice.

    I will add an upvote for the MT in the Rubicon. In 4LO on the trails you just let off the clutch and it drives itself. In fact, the 4:1 ratio is so good that unless I am rock crawling, I don't go any lower than 3rd gear from a dead stop and the engine just pulls it wherever I want to go. To...
  12. doors off in rain - damage mitigation (2018 JL 2-Door)

    Yes, I know: I'm just speaking from real-world experience. Again, this was on a JK not a JL. I've also had an iPhone that was rated for 2m depth @ 30 min get trashed by a splash of water at the exact wrong angle. Like all things, YMMV... To the OP, I think doors off and panels on would be...
  13. doors off in rain - damage mitigation (2018 JL 2-Door)

    I would agree with this statement for everything BELOW the dashboard. All the electronics in the dash are very susceptible to water. From experience, a 1" rain fall wreaked havoc on my clockspring and the horn would randomly go off until the battery would die (or I pulled the fuse). Took...
  14. ReBuilding Ruby - Bringing Her Back To Life

    This is awesome! ...and your son did a fantastic job of video editing, BTW! Can't wait to see continued progress
  15. Is Soft Top Lack of Security a Farce?

    One of the best ways to prevent theft is to not give thieves anything worthwhile to steal, or to cover/hide any items of value. This goes for a convertible, SUV, sedan, hard top or soft top. If someone sees a laptop or purse sitting in the vehicle, they are going to smash a window almost as...
  16. Official Title: Too Many Damn Questions ;) F/K/A Opinions on Factory LED Package

    Agreed on the snow (I live in OH). Otherwise, I am VERY happy with the factory LED's. When I drive my old JK with upgraded IPF headlights (which I used to think were AWESOME) I find it hard to see now!
  17. Fuel Fill-Up

    Mine just started having an issue a couple of weeks ago. 2018 JLUR with roughly 28,000 miles on it. I have found that pushing the nozzle into the filler hard (not toooo hard) seems to work.
  18. Issue Bulletin: Wind Noise from Lower A Pillar

    I know this is an old thread, but wanted to add my experience (and fix) for the A-pillar issue. Like many others, I tried to diagnose this various ways (I have a premium soft top, so the hard top issue did not apply to me). I finally narrowed down the source to somewhere in the driver's door...
