Take top off. Remove doors. Crank Radio. Get a foot peg for the feet and have a blast!

Pick yourself up some cheap Aviators and etch the Jeep logo on there.

Picked up a couple of those jeep towels from quadratec that double as a quick seat cover, very nice investment for after pool or beach, keeps seat dry and also keeps you from sitting on a red hot seat after its been sitting topless in the sun all day.

Can a bikini top be easily installed since I already have a stock soft top? I'm new to all this so go easy on me.

It's all good. Yes a bikini top can be installed no matter what top you have. It is just a small piece of material that covers the front seats to give you a little sun protection and protection from the unexpected storm. I have a mesh style one that let's a little more sunlight through. It attaches with straps around the roll bars and to the front with a bar they sent me that screws into the top of the windshield frame using the stock latch holes your soft top latches into. All in all it takes 15 minutes to put it on. Not too bad. And it looks good and keeps you from getting really hot if your sitting still with the top down. Besides, who doesn't like a good looking bikini right? haha

No problem. And if you're new to jeeps, you'll be surprised how many bikinis can fit into one!

How do ya like the mesh top? I was looking at picking up a spederweb shade or knock off but can't really determine if I would miss the sun on me or if I would get enough use out if it just installing on those brutal hot days

Jammock

Just bought a Jammock for my Wrangler. Pretty nice being able to lounge around on a sunny day. Acts as a sunshade too.

I'm thinking of getting a cab cover so I won't have to put the windows in for an overnight rain.

Isn't that the point of having the plugs? I planned on never putting windows back on once the weather was warm enough.

I really like it. You still get plenty of sun on you but you don't sweat if you're sitting still and it keeps your center console from getting 1,000 degrees when it sits in a parking lot. Not sure what brand mine is. I'd take a picture of the bar and mesh top for you but it's at home along with my jeep and I'm away at college till spring break, where it will be filled with bikinis

Love my Bestop Safari top. Get the no drill header version- bolts onto top of windshield. Easy. I initially had the door surrounds off, but put them back on, and the top can tuck into them, putting good tension on it.
Shade for front and rear. Important here in Texas.
:-)

I was considering;

a cargo net top so the dogs can ride and not try to jump out.

Bedline the interior in case of rain i just pull the plugs and forget.

and one of those underseat security boxes to keep important stuff while the top is off.

oh and mirror relocation of some sort so i can take the doors off without harrasment from the cops.

Right there with ya, break starts March 10th for me and I'll be bringing my jeep down to this awesome southern weather for the remainder or the semester. Now if you guys could figure out how to do hoagies and wawa I'd have no motivation to go back north
