Thanks

Just wanted to say thanks to WF and all the "family". The other night I got home frm work and a set of lights had been delivered, well, so what, it's dark and rainy, never stopped me before! I got the lights installed, and started the wiring and the green and white wires that are supposed to go to the same place are not the same length (white was about 6' shorter). Well, frustrated, it was time for a break. After another beer, I found an alternate route and @#!* how the heck to get behing the dash?!? Then I remembered the string on removal, looked it up, and minutes later had it off and back on, just like it said!!! THANKS

Pretty soon, y'all may be seeing a Daleyroo joining up. I was showing her the threads of Tiny's lift and a few others, and she was taken aback at how everone jumps at the chance to help!
(when I got the jeep, she didn't like it - until I took the top and doors off!) WF ROCKS!

LoL Mines kinda like that. Didnt like the Jeep untill the top and doors got off, then she loves it. Went wheeling with the doors off, loved it more. Drove home wet in 50 degree weather with no top and door, and she doesnt want to ride in it ever again

When Odhinn was in the market for a new truck, I was a little taken aback when he said he wanted a jeep. My thoughts were, don't those things flip over? And, how do you haul stuff in the back of a jeep? So yeah, I was pretty much dead set against them. He wanted one so bad though, so I gave it a chance. They aren't that luxurious or anything but they are lots of fun. And I guess thats all that really matters.

It was my sparkling charm and my suave personality that convinced her.
Actually I bought it anyway, she started to like it the first time she rode in it with the top down.

JJ FYI for your next light install. Pull the light apart and solder the ground wire to the light mounting bolt inside the housing. Saves on wire and then there is only one wire to run through the jeep. Thats how I do them works quite well.

My wife had a bad experience in a CJ when she was young (with the doors off, top off, and windshield down and no seatbelt). She will go wheeling with me, but the half doors have to be on for her.

She's liking it more though.

I didn't like it the first time odhinn took the doors off either. It felt really unsafe, but its just something you have to get used to I guess.

Well said. I have never had a problem with no doors. But I have been on Motorcycles since I was about 8. The freedom of the open air. I would run with my windshield down also but being hit in the head by a June bug at 60mph makes it difficult to drive.

I LOVE having no doors on. When my son and I go, they ARE off. I have to put them on for her. It doesn't bother me for one simple reason: it keeps her happy and gives her a feeling of comfort. She does NOT like motorcycles (an old BF of hers from years ago died while riding one), and I think that contributes to that 'nothing between her and the ground' open feeling she is uncomfortable with.

If she is happy and comfortable, she is more apt to go with me, and I enjoy her being with me. The fact that she has the 3 point helps a bit, but if I could put a 5 point setup on there for her, she'd be MUCH happier and probably more likely to let me hae the doors off.

Maybe once I get a real cage in there....

LOL sounds familiar, bike on the street are frowned upon in my house, and I'm too old for the dirt anymore. But the open doors are okay, she worked at six flags for years - one of the first female roller coaster foremen(person). Waaaay back then

My only problem with the doors being off is I have to tuck in my shirt or it's up around my ears. Other than that, I like them off.

Worn a skirt with the doors off? There's an exercise in futility.

One of the benefits of having his-n-hers jeeps. We can have the top and doors off of Skeeter's for fun and keep em on mine for when I need to be presentable when we "get there."

That's cuz you're sans shirt. In fact, I remember you expressing surprise that we thought you should wear pants while wheeling.

Tone def in my right ear and her voice is at just the right pitch. I usually don't hear her about the windows or her hair until I feel a pain in my shoulder or arm.
