I had my bikini top off and my doors off yesterday morning here in Tulsa. When I got up, went outside and saw that it was going to rain, I spent 10 minutes putting my safari top back on and full doors back on. I got to work, and my jeep sat in the heavy rain the entire time. Floorboards were soaked. I got home, removed my front carpet, bolted my seats back down, and dried out the back with a sponge and shop vac.
I deal with the elements any way I can other than putting the HT back on. I keep a tarp and bungees in the jeep with me, but didn't beat the rain to work in order to apply it. I just covered the inside with the tarp the best I could.
I notice when I see other jeeps around here with tops up and A/C blowing on a nice warm day, I question it to myself sometimes, but really, who knows the situation. Maybe the wifey wanted to drive the jeep that day and didn't want her hair to get messed up. Or, maybe the kid is sick, and driving them around in the open air may upset the condition. Who knows.
Calling people out because they don't have the top and doors off is no different that calling people out because they are still at stock height. (it's a jeep, take the top off/ it's a jeep, lift it......no difference)
By the way, does A/C work well in a wrangler? I don't think I've ever turned mine on.
