This. I haven't yet needed a jump, most I've left it is three hours, but it's been close. One of my next projects is going to have to involve wiring the dome-light / buzzer switch from the driver's door (the one that buzzes if the key's turned in the ignition) through the light switch so it alerts me if the lights are on. I'd much rather have that than the ignition, since I've never left my keys in the car. Other than the buzzer, I'd usually know the keys are in since the engine's still running.

Your seat belts are full of dimples from closing the door on them...

And...you come out to find your door was left open because the seat belt blocked the latch.

Bless your heart. We didn't even get a hardtop cause we only have 4 inches snow a year. And I have another 3 months to drive with the top down. I can smile cause I am originally from "up north".

Actually, this happened to me at a TGI Fridays... an hour after we sat down one of the hosts came up and asked if I drove a Jeep, 'cuz the lights are on. I guess my girlfriend and I just look like the sort of people who would have a wrangler, or something, because we parked around the back since it was so busy. Out of sight of the front door where the host might have seen us leave it.

I wanna buy a hard top for winter but I don't feel like I need it. Is there much difference between the hard vs soft in relation to the temperature of the vehicle? Like does the hard top stay warmer? Or is it all the same?

I think it all depends on the severity of your winter. When I got my jeep I had a soft top on and the winter kind of sucked as far as scraping the windows... I got my hard top and actually liked it better for winter personally. I never noticed anything as far as heat though. Maybe because my soft top had half metal doors, and my hard top has full soft?

Im.in jersey. Winter sucked last year and my top actually bowed in a little from the snow, I couldn't clear it fast enough. Dunno if it's gonna be that bad this year or not

Yeah I had that happen as Well. Got snow all on the inside from the back. Haven't had anything like that with the hard top. I feel like my cab sealed a hell of a lot better in winter then my soft top was.

Hm. I want the hard top, but only if there's like a big difference between them. If its one of those six of one half dozen of the other thing... I'm not gonna both

For winter it keeps the snow from bowing I've had that happen, easier to scrap when you want to go fast and get in with the heater. And seals a little bit better towards the rear (for me anyways) other then that I haven't noticed much of a difference.. also highway driving is much quieter with the hard top, I can actually listen to music.
