So far it's been just my safari top and my full steel doors. Needless to say, last time I went through a mud puddle I didn't have door surrounds. Ended up with mud near the drivers side vent and some over the dash, but nothing too serious. Next year it's gonna be doors off and possibly safari off. Still debating though.

Still trying to clean it all out. Getting it out of the air vents is the part that sucks

I plan on putting down plastic over the dash and vents when I take the doors off and go topless.

Worst thing I ever did to my jeep. It will never, ever be clean on the inside again. I hate mud.

Not that I would recommend it regardless of your answer, but what kinda mud is it?? I have wheeled through just plain old wet dirt, thick swampy sticky ass mud, and stanky disgusting cow shit mud... none were a joy after the fact, but the later 2 of those I would want no where near the soft top, interior, or myself.

I wouldn't purposely wheel my Jeep in deep mud again even if its top & interior was hermetically sealed.

There was a time that I would search out mud to play in, long ago. Now I avoid it like the plague.

That's a losing battle. I went in mud once with just my windows unzipped. I still find mud in my air vents.. But it's the only thing I really have to play in so I have fun with it. But I wouldn't ever go topless.

Mud is not that great. Kinda sucks being in Florida now but I rather just hit trails with some buddies and have a good time.

Not go mudding where people get stuck and usually when mudding something is bound to break or mess up. And the clean up takes hours. Just not worth it in my opinion.
