For better or worse

I have made the plunge in to jeepdom with an 05 Wrangler. Ride is like a milk truck, road noise drowns out the stereo, corners make me nervous, and my first hard braking event made me poop a little...I LOVE IT!!!

I spent about a year on these (and some other) forums to get a feel for what I was in for, and I thank all those that post why they love their Jeeps, I can see why.

I do have one question...I have a hard top, which I think is great for the winter, but what should I have in the summer. It will be my daily driver, so there is a potential to get caught in the elements. Is a bikini to enough to keep me kind of dry, and the interior from smelling like wet dog? If not, what is a (cheap) alternative?

I take my softtop and doors, throw em in the shed during the summer. Safari top and a tonno, seat covers with all the carpet removed is what I run all summer. The only thing I get is some mist from the back and a drop or two when Im parked. This year I picked up some full soft doors so if it does get real bad, I can just throw those on.
