Could someone take a pic of the weather stripping on their hardtop, or take a look and tell me if a part has fallen off?

    I had the same issue with water getting in there on Unit #3 for the time that I owned it. The weather stripping around the rear glass on Unit #3 looked similar to the pictures you have posted. Perhaps if someone could post a picture of the rear seal from a factory top it would shed some light on how Jeep solved/minimized the problem.

    I looked at my fathers Jeep, but he has the new style hardtop with the wider hatch glass which is totally different. I did come across this part though, and there are fancy rubber ends on the weather strip. I might order one and test it out if everyone else is in the same boat as I am.

    Edit: According to Mario at AT Overland, the quadratec part is the correct replacement part. Ill order, install, and report back.

    The Quadratec part mentioned above does NOT fit the hardtop. I'll have to come up with a different solution.

    Will a fold-over Jeep camper ever be available again? Ursa Minor remains busy shipping 2nd generation J30 pop up campers and continues to build our experience with Jeeps. Any fold over Jeep designs will await the new Jeep JL, and the potential JL truck, hitting the market.

    Cheers,

    That was a long 2 year wait. I would be interested to hear what plans you may have at the moment.
