It hit 71 deg today. I couldn't resist.

I can't contain myself. I'm giddy like a school girl!

I'm jealous.

Just a suggestion, but check out the Plasti paint threads and see if you like it.
If so, I think your front grill would look awesome in black!

I am definitely jealous, I can't wait to take mine off for the first time, it's snowing here today... :(

On the jealousy, and on Gonzo's Plasti-Dip grille recommendation. I think it would look awesome on your white Jeep. JMO. :thumb:

Take the rest off and you'll need a drool cup. You're only halfway there.

No doubt! But, everything has to go back on later tonight and I don't trust my wife to help with the back.

Phishe 02-29-2012 04:52 PM

Thanks for the suggestions on the plasti-dip. I hadn't even considered that before. I have some thinking to do...

Soooooo jealous!!! It's snowing here... :(

But nice looking jeep!

Its getting a little warmer, but it aint warm enough for that. I am going to make the switch to the soft top pretty soon though.

ESP 02-29-2012 05:18 PM

Yep as others have said wait until you get the top off too.

Sgt.slaughter 02-29-2012 06:39 PM

SO Jealous!!! I was really hoping for a winter with no snow but NOPE we've been getting pounded with snow all day and it's not supposed to stop till tomorrow night. Uuuuuuuuugh!

First time Jeep owner here. Starting to warm up in the Northeast a little bit. Can't wait to remove the hard top for the first time. We where just talking at work today about it. I have to find a good place to store the hard top..

well, we were at -15Celsius when I picked up my new baby - and the soft top was installed under the hard top ... soo... add some winter gear and the kids and I had a blast bombing around the neighbourhood that had just been whacked with a snowstorm.

in all seriousness, we're a few months away from getting the top off regularly.

Don't get me wrong, I'm super excited that warmer weather is around the corner, but I was disappointed in our winter. I was hoping to get hammered with snow so I could see just what Bosco could handle, but the most accumulation we got all winter was about 1.5" inches. Couldn't even take my kids sledding this year!

That said, I'll take the warm weather now, please. Can't wait to cruise around with the top/doors off all day long!

:punk:

I8up 03-01-2012 09:28 AM

Yeah, great looking jeeps...Im in San Antonio, and its very warm, i ran almost all last week with no top/doors...I had not done that since my CJ7 years ago...Felt awesome...

Door Storage
 
Well, after taking the doors off yesterday, it became immediately clear to me that I'm going to need a good way to store them. Just ordered these!

Or you could buy some eye bolts and put them into the studs at the proper spacing, and hang them that way.... ;)

:facepalm: Eh, that's OK. The price was fair and I'll have the peace of mind of using a product that's designed for this purpose. Plus, I don't mind supporting a company like ACE. Seems like a great small business.
