Wish I lived in an area that I could do that without worrying about a downpour. I am getting the jeep ready....gradually...for being able to be in the rain. Just ordered waterproof seat covers, next, bedline the tub and remove the carpets. That will probably be next year. I already have enough on the plate for this summer between my two jeeps.

Jeep looks great without the top. Same color as mine. I usually run with the soft top in the summer. Gotta get that done...been a little on the busy side. That will change soon...I teach and school is out within a week.

It may be the safety campaign I've been on

I'm guessing that is before he had a chance to get out on the road. Been cool in the northeast; may be better with the windows up until next week.

It's a pet peeve of mine. I go nuts when I see convertibles with the tops down and the windows up. It's worse when I see a Wrangler going down the road like that.

I'm from NJ. I don't use the word "weenie". I would tell you what I say, but the last time I did, Barrie wasn't very pleased.

Boy that stuff is a bitch to get off, the goo off laughs at it. Used a razor blade and commercial acetone ( after pulling off film)

My kids are usually with me, so I try to be gentle..... I suppose they just really don't want to mess up their hair... That wind can be brutal you know. And heaven forbid the comb over get out of place...
