Who's psyched for winter?

I'm tired of all this darn heat. I'm hoping we gets loads of snow and this winter is a cold one. Who else? Also to keep this semi-tech related, what is everyone doing to prepare for winter?

Well... I just got a Rain Gear Trail cover.

As far as prepping for winter, I usually wait until the first frost to swap from my soft top to the hard top. Other than that nothing special.

I too am looking forward to some cooler weather. Fat girls do NOT like the heat.

I'm going to guess that you all don't live in Minnesota. I'm in no rush to see winter, ever.

My BF only has a half soft top so he doesn't have a choice.

Ya'all wish for winter, but as soon as it gets here 10 minutes later, ya'all willl be posting "Who's psyced for summer?" I simply enjoy each season as is comes, but September is my favorite month of the year (deer and elk archery season in Oregon).

Winter??? Are you kidding me? It's summer....there's beaches, BBQ's, bass fishing, girls in short shorts with body parts hanging out all over the place, car shows, baseball, the top is off, ice cream, corn on the cob, the sunset is at 9:00 PM instead of 4:30, ect...

I ski and I don't mind the winter but F that I'll take summer.

Before the snow hits, gotta hit the northern Michigan two tracks and hopefully get a little fall color... but I don't expect to see a lot of that with the draught . Then bring on the snow !

I know I'm ready for winter!! All I do to prep for it is move that dial on the dash from the blue to the red.

This last winter was a absolute joke.

I wish we had more winter here in Alabama. On the way back from the Outer Banks last month detouring through Spartanburg, SC the digital thermometer hit 114 on the interstate at 5:00 PM. You Yanks got it made.

Agreed. I bought my wrangler september last year and put duratracs on there so no matter the weather i could make it to work, and, naturally, when i have a great 4wd vehicle and snow rated tires it only snows three times and hardly even sticks

I just like hunting season, deer, elk, birds or bear. I love winter, but that is because it is like summer in Alaska here. My BFG Mudders do fine in the deep snow, need to be siped for better (any) performance on the packed stuff, ice, forget about it.

You and your fancy soft tops. I think my hardtop is still in my backyard? I haven't seen it in 3 months. Haha. And trust me fat boys don't like 107 either.

That's fall here in MO. Summer is for farm work and swimming. I love going outside and how bright it is in the winter during the day. And at night camping is so special. Hey it does give you an excuse to get closer to said short short wearing girls. trust me.

In Texas, any season is better than summer. Will be 100 degrees today, again. Of course we don't get much winter either

Soooo the weather outside is frightful,
But my Jeep is so delightful.
Wherever I want to go,
let it snow let it snow let it snow.
