I am new to this group but not to my Jeep. People are constantly getting on to my hubby that he drives a newer vehicle, but I told him that if he ever sells my Jeep he had better bring divorce papers with the cash from the sell.

Adrianne .. Welcome  :ahappy:


I run soft top / full soft doors year round. I get often asked "Don't you get cold?"


Summer time I keep a few of those large 55 gallon size trash bags stashed in the Jeep. If it rains and my doors are at home. Put a big bag over the seat so I got a dry bottom when I get off work. Or .. if it rains and I didnt catch it in time. I put the bag over the wet seat to have a dry bottom. If its still raining when I get off .. aaa heck with it... jump in an head home. Still isnt as bad as getting caught in the rain while riding my motorcycle.


Getting about time to put body plugs in the floor board.
