    I drive my jeep with the doors and top off for about 8 months a year. I live in an area with tropical weather were it rains for a few minutes and then stops. I looked into buying an emergency top. Do those work? also does anyone have any suggestions?

    Welcome! I live in the desert, so I don't have any experience with this rain stuff. Hopefully someone else chimes in soon.

    I feel like as long as the front is cover, dash steer wheel what not you should be fine, everything else I think is able to get wet. I know my jeep has been rained on more than once.

    Also I have no real fact to back this up just a gut feeling.
