First ride with doors off!

Comparable to riding a motorcycle. Loved it!! I got props from a couple of wranglers and headlights and horn from a stock Cherokee! Then it rained. Hard and sideways. Good thing I didn't take the top off!

Next time I might check the radar first. I'm like a dumb kid with a new toy.

Same here. Forecast said 10% chance. You know you're a jeeper when you know where every covered gas station is in town

Takes me back to motorcycle riding days when I was young.

I hauled tail to a bank drive through and parked in the lane facing the wrong way. My bride-to-be, our 2 dogs and I slapped mosquitos there until it lightened up. We also got some attention from a police officer until he noticed our dilemma.

Thanks to my girl and our dogs for being good sports. I think they are taking my mid life crisis pretty well!

Happened to me yesterday. My top was folded down an my doors were off. Luckily I saw the wall of rain heading my way an had a chance to throw the top on real quick. Oh the joys of being a Florida Jeeper

I love having the doors off, there's nothing like. I to have learned to check the radar before I do it.

Another Hollywood, FL Jeeper huh? Today was the first nice day in weeks. Seems like it has rained every single day since I put the soft top on for easy access

I took my doors off for the first time yesterday too. What an awesome feeling. I put them back on last night. I am still a little nervous about leaving it parked in my driveway all night with no doors. There is nothing in it to steal, I think my biggest "danger" comes from my next door neighbor's irrigation system.
