Tube doors + 60mph = pizza levitation

Fortunately it came toward me and I caught it out of the air. Nothing to see here officer.

Driving, grabbing the pizza box out of the air, and taking a pic, now that would be a feat.

Was there a pizza in it? My weathertec floor mats levetate at about 70 with the doors off.

My sister had this issue with the doors off... I told her to buckle it in, but of course she knew better (not).

Oh yea, or it wouldn't have freaked me out so bad. It didn't exactly rise up evenly, either. Unfortunately, I was all out of free hands to take a pic!

True. Floor mats levitate at 50+ mph. Quadratec's rear mats get a GOOD 3-4 inches from the floor itself. I need to pass by a fabric store and get a big sheet of velcro to see if that can hold them down. A levitating pizza would make a nice sight though.

I'm a thin crust guy...invest in a motorcycle-type bungee net to keep your stuff from flying outta the Jeep at speed with the top/doors off.

Problem solved.

Many, Many, MANY years ago, my girlfriend at the time, was teaching me how to drive a standard. She had an old BMW 2002, one of her fathers retired race cars that he converted back to street legal (but still FAST!) for her. It's probably the second or third time I ever drove stick and she tells me to go through the McDonald's drive-thru, for "real-world" experience...besides, she was hungry . So here I am with a Big Mac in my left hand, a big-a$$ soda between my legs and the shifter in my right...I didn't stall it!

Switch to salads... better for your waistline and for more levitation

I'd leave this part out if you enjoy your man card.

No seat warmer here, I have a TJ, a mans jeep (though I wish I had one).

Revoked.

Are you saying my JK is a sissy Jeep?

Man, bring your pathetic dinosaur up to WI for Eve of Destruction and I'll drive over it for you.

I hope they salted the roads extra nice this year and your rear end falls off when you try to catch me.

I could've stored fish with the amount of salt they laid on the roads this year. Behold...

when I had tube doors I had my Military ID come out of my chest pocket on the highway and levitate just over my dash before I managed to catch it

Had LJ, just a better TJ (half kidding). Built too far to an impractical level. Sold and bought JK (which I used to deny as even being a wrangler) and now I'll never go back

Anything wrangler rocks. It just takes getting used to the evolution (for me anyway).
