Last week I took the top off. I have driven 1500 miles since, some with the doors on, some with them off. The top has stayed down for most of this, but it has been too cold or rainy on two occasions.
I am a musician by profession. I play full time in a symphony orchestra. And today, of course, I had an Easter gig.
It was 49║ when I left the house on my 90 minute drive on country US highways and eventually the Interstate. The top had been down all night and it was WET inside from dew. I toweled everything off, did a quickie top raising, rolled the windows up and hit the road. The rear was totally open.
And yes, it was cold. But my heater kept me comfy. I had the four new speakers and new sub cranking. It was a great ride anyway. I showed up at the church in my suit with my horn, ready to play.
When the gig was over (two church services) it was about 12:30 PM. I came out amongst the throngs of people, yanked off my tie and folded it up, placed it in an inner suit coat pocket, and neatly folded my coat and stored it in a giant zip lock bag I keep in the glove box. I tossed the coat and tie behind the rear seat beneath the folded up top. I stuck the horn in the back seat.
I lowered the top with about 50 people watching off and on as they visited in the parking lot. Many came up to me to compliment the brass group's performance in the service. They commented on the Jeep, too. "Always wanted one of those things!" That sort of stuff.
Then I fired up my 4.0L and took off into the cloudless 78║ afternoon for my wonderful hour-and-a-half ride home.
THAT is what I did with my TJ today.
HAPPY EASTER, Y'ALL!

What I did today...
I know it's a small modification, but I think it looks cool. I was getting tired of the billet shifter leaving black residue all over my hand.

This was last summer. I made my stock hard top into a "sunrider" hard top. It was pretty easy. I drew the line I wanted to cut, then used a jigsaw, bolted on some hinges, added door trim and glued on some weather stripping. All I had to do was unlatch the front and get out and flip it back. Drove it on the highway open without issue (if your jeep is in a position where this would flip forward, there are bigger problems) but it did bounce a bit so I started tossing a strap over it and to the center roll bar. Anyway, the weatherstripping didn't do its job, the thing leaked like crazy, completely soaked seats, so I would leave the plugs out of the floor and keep the seats tumbled forward on days it might rain. Also I was worried about the stress of the hinges possibly cracking the hard top around the screws, so I'm not certain about how structurally sound it was. I know they make two piece hard tops, which are crazy expensive, so this is a cheap way to do it with an existing top, plus it flips back rather than lifting off. But the roof really should be reinforced (fiberglass maybe?) under the hinges, and needs a better way to keep water out, maybe an overlapping channel like the two piece tops have.
I have a soft top now, so this top sits out back, but I plan to re visit it and try to fix those issues. It still would be cool to use in the spring/fall when it's colder but I might get an occasional nice day and flip it back, and I'll run my soft top in the summer.

Right now I've got a 3.5 to RCA going from the EQ to a bluetooth receiver and the tablet auto-connects to the bluetooth when the screen turns on. Everything fit so tight I can't get a 3.5 jack into the tablet because the vent will be in the way, but I do worry the bluetooth takes away some sound quality, even though it sounds pretty good. But I've had the bluetooth lose connection for some reason and that's inconvenient. I might just have to modify the edge of the vent somehow to allow the jack some clearance. On that note, the USB cable to power the tablet is putting some stress on the tablet's USB port I'm sure, because that's a very tight bend as well.

Mead....just use flexible hose for the vents or was the stock movable?
I thought I was done with my Jeep but now Im considering this lol. I have a tablet sitting around doing nothing lol.
Hows the sound? Im assuming your using a 3.5 audio jack that splits to standard RCA?
