Did anybody else enjoy the nice day it turned out to be after this morning and the past couple days of nasty rain.

Figured I'd kill the morning making this to enjoy going doorless this afternoon.





The funny thing is my Jeep felt like it had an extra 30hp minus doors, but it was probably just the fact that you could see road where you normally wouldn't. Oh, and, all the strange looks from other people on the road. Guess they dont see to many 4 doors going doorless.

Heck yeah I enjoyed it! I was getting cabin fever bad! I don't think we saw the sun for six days.

I cleaned the Jeep up and prepped it for the rear bumper installation next week.

Which cove? Green Cove? Fruit Cove?

OK. I've got the front doors off, the roof is in the garage, spiderweb shade installed and ready for national topless day tomorrow. We've got a baseball game early, then I'm gonna cruise St Augustine beach all the way to Mantanzas, anybody gonna be out that way tomorrow?

Managed to dodge the thunderstorms at Vilano Beach today. Plus, an excuse to show off my newly installed Bushwacker flat fenders.

I had to chuckle a little when I looked at the weather forecast to decide if I should keep the top down or put it back up.

I see a theme here. How hard is it to be a weather forecaster in Jacksonville during the summer months?

Just learn to put the top up in 2 minutes or less. Welcome to Florida, if you don't like the weather wait 5 minutes.

Yeah, with a lot of practice, I've gotten pretty fast at taking the top up and down. Still, when the rain chance is about 60% or greater for the next few days, I'll usually button up, or at least run with the top up and rear windows out, bikini style.

Yesterday, it looked like rain all day long and yet I ran topless the whole time and don't think I had more than a sprinkle.

I have mine bed lined so I only run safari 10 months a year. As long as the dash stays dry I call it good. My windows add 20 minutes to top installation.

I am mostly concerned about getting a wet ass. It is designed to take the rain, but a little annoying when I have to head into work with wet clothes....

I have hard doors so with the windows up and safari top up it stays dry in the front.

^^Looking good. Did I see your 10A at Hooter's a couple of weekends ago? Different wheels and tires, IIRC.

Yeah....so that storm yesterday went sideways up in Kings Bay. I took out about 15-20 gallons of water out of it last night. Why the hell would they carpet over the front drain plugs without easy access to them? All good though, nothing a knife couldn't fix.

My wife and I live in fleming Island, I work at NAS jax.

Im from nebraska and used to mudding all the time and trail riding. Cant find shit around here.

Beaches are ok I suppose but something about mud flying around is so much better. Anyways Always interested in riding Will drive an hour or so to meet up with people are decent spots.

Got a stock JK with 30 inch kendas, no lift, lights, or winch....for now.
