Youre going to be miserable. This summer it got about 100 and since i dont have air conditioning, had the top and doors off. Ugh.

If you have ac it might be better....

Its still fun though. People look at you weird on the highway with the doors off.

Here in Phoenix 100 feels a LOT different-very low sometimes single digit humidity makes a huge difference. I survived 104 in Cleveland - absolutely awful. 104 in Phoenix in shade with a nice cold beverage is actually fairly comfortable.

I will take 104 over 40 any day of the week! I got my Jeep late September so I only saw 1 topless day at 100+. With the ac it was quite ok. But lesson learned-long pants or a slathering of sunscreen to avoid crispy arms and legs lol. In the 115 range tho will have to see-but if the ac truly kicks butt like the heater, should be a nonissue. I know folks here who go topless year round. We can touch freezing briefly usually 5 minutes at like 3 am lol-all the way up to 115+. Vegas is usually even less humid but gets colder in winter-my older sis lived there a few years. And windier!
