how often are your doors off?

I generally live by "tops off doors off" unless I need the doors with me (crappy weather, long highway trips)

Doors off (check)

Top off (check)

That's what makes a Jeep a Jeep!

Mine won't go on again unless it's supposed to rain or I gotta take a road trip (and even on the road trip it'll just be doors, unless it's raining.)

My doors and top have been off, literally, since the day I bought my Jeep.

The agreement with my wife is I wouldn't drive around with her or my daughter with the top/doors off. So during the school year, they are on. On some days I'll pop off the top on the way home from work or on the weekend. I take my daughter to the sitter during the day, so the top is on if I'm working.

However, the doors came off for Spring Break and stayed off. I left the top on, we have had showers off and on.

Mine are only on when its raining for more than 2 days in a row. Otherwise they are off... kids, wife, dog, all deal with it or they take her car lol. Honestly they love it when the top is off, I take my daughter to school every morning with them off and she loves it.

I took my top off yesterday for the first time. I'm thinking when it rains, I'll just put the very top on and leave the sides and back off. Thinking about the doors today...

Once the warm weather starts, doors are off for the whole summer. Even when it rains, thats what drain plugs are for. Although the top does stay on so my seats aren't completely soaked

Once late spring early summer hits, doors and top get stored in garage. I have a cabin cover that in case if rains goes over my Jeep and keeps it dry. Costs about $149 but well worth it to be topless and doorless!

Doors are coming off for the first time tomorrow. I already took the screws out. I generally never have my freedom tips on. Cleaning out the garage this weekend and plan on taking the entire top for the first time since I will have room for it.

Doorless oh yeah!

Nothing like rippin the doors off...here in Virginia at dusk it's killer drivin through the country side and smellin the smells and feeling the air. We have a plant/flower here that smells like black pepper dont know what it is but it really takes me back to my early crazy Jeep years when I smell it...

Gonna take 'em off for first time tomorrow. It rains here a lot, so I've got to watch the radar.
(actually had them off momentarily today, just to break the hinges loose, but didn't have the mirrors on hand)
I also need to set something up in the garage to store them on.
