no door for week trip?

So last week I drove to charlotte, NC for a week long work trip. No.doors or windows. I'm heading back this week but calling for rain two days. 30% chance. What would you do?

We've done it from New Bern, NC to Charleston, WV and back. No top, no doors. It's about an eight hour drive. It stormed BIG time and rained a lot, lol, it was kind of fun though. Keep a squegee in the car to wipe the inside of your windshield I drive in the rain with no top or doors regularly around town in the summer time if I have to go out. I say go for it, if you throw your soft top up, you won't get so wet anyway. Have fun!

It isn't driving in rain. It's having it parked and getting into jeep with $100 dress pants.

Usually I fold seat forward and put a poncho on it.

Ah, gotcha. I keep a "jeep bag" in a waterproof box with trash bag, steering wheel cover, rain jacket and change of clothes! If you really want to enjoy no doors, maybe just fold the seat and cover in the poncho like usual and maybe have a change of pants so you can put the nice ones away safely?

Invest in a pair of these:

froggtoggs.com

Works great on motorcycles, so it should work in a Jeep.
