Oops--I did it again
 
There are some clouds out, yes, but the temperature is a bit above 50^ so I had to do it:

I hope some of you others out there are also able to sneak in some top-down time during the winter months.

We hit 80F on Sat! I have the HT on so I can take the baby with us. I'll have to take it off and switch the tops and just put the windows on and top up when I need to take her someplace.

Chicago's supposed to get dangerously close to 60F by Wed/Thurs.... rainy but i just might have to pop my soft-top cherry.

Yes, you definitely need to, what with your recent story about making it to work through that blizzard. :thumb:

Gonna be 70+ here Friday, I told the boss today I won't be at work, if you need me, I won't be available :D! I'll be in the woods cuttin trails with the top down and a HUGE smile!:)

We have almost 3' of snow still on the ground, the industrial snow-thrower came down the street, and it was 55F this afternoon. If only I weren't at work... :-(

Yesterday it was 65 outside with snow still on the ground but I still took off the doors and rolled up the back window :)

I envy you folks, i'd have pulled mine yesterday if it wasn't such a pain. Trade off you get for having a hard top. I still haven't gotten my hoist set up quite right yet, so it's still a bit of an ordeal. There are times I wish i had a soft top.

I pulled the hard top off my TJ by myself years ago and it nearly killed me to keep from dropping it! I wouldn't recommend trying it without help! Use the hoist!

Little further north than all of you, but i can still feel it coming. The top down weather right is around the corner :)

Haha, yeah. I just got a soft top, but had a hard top before. Taking it off was a pain and I could get it off on my own and set it down safely, however, putting it back on the jeep was a whole different story.

Still AT LEAST a month before I even think of taking the top off even if does get to the 49 degrees they're calling for this Friday.

I have a hard top also, but me and the kid can take it off and put it back on without any issues.

Can't wait for some decent weather though!!

LOL! I didn't even attempt to put it back on alone!

49 is too chilly for my blood! LOL! Spring is close, I can't wait either!
