The seal was fine when I took everything off. I just made sure it sat where it was before when reapplying it. It rained after I put the top back on, and I didn't have any leaks, so I think it should be fine.96GreenMonster said:this comes at a good time. if my bronco has not had its top off at all, when you take it off, will the seal not be as strong when u put it back on and will water and stuff leak?
ha, I think I read that. Mine has a little tie going through the perimeter of the cover, which after tightening on the tire, I tie a couple times around the carrier, so it's not going anywhere. If by some miracle it does fly off, it'll just drag on the ground until I pull over anyway.Hoss said:Just a tip: With the top off you may want to take your tire cover off or attach it with a bunge cord to the swing away tire carrier.
I lost mine doing 70 mph down the interstate with the top off.:doh0715:
