Howdy from Colorado

I am joining this group in desperation because of an unusual problem I'm having with my 1998 Jeep Wrangler Sport. Issue was posted in appropriate forum.

I inherited my Jeep from my dad who bought it new in 1998. He passed away in 2012 and when I received it it had only 40,000 miles on it. Now it is up to 62,000. He babied the thing like crazy and it's in excellent shape (except for aforementioned issue). It was recently egged by neighborhood kids which left finish damage which totally sucks, so I'm working on a new paint job when money allows.

I would love to have the top and doors off all summer long, but how does one go about doing that with fluctuating weather? That hard top is hard to get on and off! I sound ignorant - and unfortunately I am in these matters - so any advice.

You have several options (that's the beauty of a Wrangler). You can take the hard top off and buy a soft top, I run a soft top year around. You can get a bikini top to keep most of the moisture and seat covers to keep the water off your seat. You can also buy an emergency top to cover up when an unexpected rain hits. Also some people use a hard top hoist in their garage to easily and quickly take the top off and on. Lots of choices for you to think about.

In the mean time, I just like to say . . .
