    Heavy Rain?

    This is my first Jeep, during heavy rain storms Iíve noticed that the rear door seals are allowing rain to get into the Cab of the Jeep any fixes for this? Itís a 2013 JKU!

    Iím having the same issue from the bottom of both of my front doors.
    The dealer dismissed my complaint since they ď couldnít duplicate the problem ď which is what they replied with for every single issue I had with my Jeep since day one.
    Iíll be going to a different dealer from now on, so hopefully Iíll get better results.
    I think they have an issue with the robber seal that goes around the doors.
    Iíve been having this issue since my Jeep was only one year old.

    I've had the same thing with my 08 JKUX, but in the front doors. Even going through a car wash I've felt water hitting my leg. Last winter I put in weathertech footwell liners, and now when we get heavy rain there will be water looked in both footwells. I think it's coming from the lower corner (hing side) where the rubber seal is. But I can't find any damage or gaps. It's jeep mystery to me...

    My 2012 JKUR hardtop leaks around the front drivers door. I think itís a misalignment condition with the hinges where the door seal doesnít get a good seal at the upper front corner.

    A buddy of mineís JL leaks in the same place. You would think the engineers at Jeep would figure this shit out at some point.

    I put some foam backer rod from home depot inside the door rubber. Just peel it back and stuff it in at the tops of the doors. You canít even see it. This makes the seal tighter to the jamb when closed.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
