Re: Here's a new one: water coming in from the B pillar.

Any update? Im curious Fryingpan, I'm getting my vehicle fully wrapped and due to the ridges on top of the roof near the rear antenna, it could not be completely wrapped. Was your entire roof covered? Thanks!

I'll bet money that there was a issue when building the jeep and there is no adhesive/body sealer Between the roof and aperture. There is probably a hand full of cars that got out with this problem. Had this issue with a Ram 1500 I owned.

Re: Here's a new one: water coming in from the B pillar.

Aaaaaand it's baaaaack. Had torrential rains here overnight and discovered a wet headliner this morning. The last time I took the jeep in, they insisted that it was repaired (thread locker/sealant on the roof rack mounting bolts) and I was good to go.

At this point, I'm considering sealing the entire area off under the roof rails with a couple coats of plasti-dip. . .

You are lucky the dealer is even looking at it, since the roof was touched (modified). At that point, the wrappee (wrapper?) assumes liability.

While you're 100% right about this, the fact that 2 dealerships can't directly link the wrap to the leak leads me to believe that there's something else going on here. The wrap is only on the actual sheetmetal and doesn't cover any seams, gaps, or joints.

If there was a giant swath of vinyl covering up an obvious water drain, it'd be one thing, but the fact that it's not (and actually even cut short of the gutters) the notion that the wrap is causing this doesn't seem to hold up. Other members here have wrapped roofs and don't have this issue either. I'm leaning toward the body sealer theory at this point.

Remove the headliner and use a hose on the outside on low to pin point the problem.
This will cause health issues as well once this turns to mold, and it will.
