Is it difficult to smoke a cig while topless? Or does the ashtray debri get whisked all over the inside? Next week will be my first time going with the soft top so any insight would help me out...

When I have the top off, I use a do-rag to keep the sun off my balding head. Never had an issue with it getting pulled off. Might have to try the glasses strap tho, came close to losing those a couple of times.

Not a good thing when you're extremely nearsighted!

Done some longer weekend trips without doors about a 4 hr drive one way. No doors or roof. Your ears sure ring after that when your spinning 35" mts lol. Not complaining though I love it. And the hat thing. If its cool out I wear a hoody with the hood up. Seems to help

I have a hat tether that I clip to my collar when driving, and wrapped around the the adjustment band when not. Sailors use these things all the time, that is where I got the idea. REI sells them for like $5.

That's really smart, but it only keeps you from losing it, not keeps it from falling off. I guess I just need to buy a tighter hat. Haha

Turn your hat backwards. If that doesnt work then I would recommend duct tape.

The worst thing about taking off the doors for me is, for some really stupid reason, the fact that I get really wet when I go threw a car wash. I can't for the life of me figure out how so much water gets in, but it does. I also can't figure out why the owner of the car wash keeps looking at me like I'm weird.

You should tell him that you're multitasking and doing your laundry at the same time.

The worst thing about taking the doors off is having to listen to my in-laws worry about "how dangerous it is". So much so, that they have now convinced my wife of this. Aaaggh!
Any door that is light enough that I can remove it myself, does not offer much protection. I'm seriously considering buying useless tubular doors just to shut them up.
Are there any statistics on this phenomenon of getting t-boned and dying in your doorless Jeep versus a Jeep with doors? Does the National Transportation Safety Board or the DOT track these things??? Sheesh!

Okay rant over, carry on.

Everyone is always afraid they'll fall out. And I'm like "that's what seat belts are for.

Coolest thing about having no doors is you get an automatic passenger ejection seat by quickly undoing their seatbelt and taking a hard left turn.

The issue I see is having your left leg, arm and the left side of your face getting the pinstriping your doors would have gotten instead. Some of the brush around here has a way of reaching out and touching you if you let it.

I jus use a black and decker staple gun and fasten my hat to the top of my head. Taking it off is a little tough though.

I have a Stanley sharpshooter staple gun and I would have done the same had I figured out how to load the damn thing!

If it gets too bad on the hiway with my hat backwards, I also just take it off and throw it over the gear shifter like someone else already posted.

Smoking is bad for you.

I can only light up when stopped at a light or something. I don't have an ashtray in my Jeep, so I use a glass bottle with a screw top lid for an ashtray. It seals up tight and doesn't stink out the Jeep like an ashtray does. Ashes will fly, along with anything else light and not strapped down.

...and then he will further ask me why I'm doing my laundry using car soap. "Because it smells good".

Worst thing about having the doors off is when you have to put them back on.
