My Right Arm is tanner and burns

Is the right arm tanner then the left a Jeep Thing?? I been driving for the last 10 days with the top down and I notice a slight disparity in my arms color of tan.


Also,How do you keep from burning your right arm on the center console when the roof is down and you get in after the Jeep has been "baking" in the sun?

It has been 98 - 110 in the sun and man that center console gets very HOT!

I put a towel on it as a cheap fix.
The cloth BLACK seats get pretty hot too!

I bet the leather seats get even hotter!

Trucker's tan. Not just a Jeep thing... does mean you're really enjoying driving it around on nice days though.

Just discovering this fact about Earth's sun are you?

Well just be careful with gravity, ok?

Take the Newtonian physics slowly, you'll be fine.
