What's the coldest that you've gone topless?

I was out on the highway this morning in a 65 MPH zone. My dash display was showing 48 degrees. (And it's pretty accurate). I had the heat on low blowing comfortably.

I spotted a JK coming in the other direction. It was totally stripped.... No top, no doors and there were four guys sitting in it. (Late teens early 20's all bundled up ).

I won't even think of taking off the freedom panels unless it's over 70. It has to be even warmer before the hard top comes off..

I didn't get a chance to do it, but I was planning on taking my doors/windows out of the soft top in the middle of winter and drive around in my winter gear, like it was summer...

Sadly, only like 4 days of winter in Michigan this year...

Last year was a drought in the northeast and I was completely naked the entire spring/summer. In the beginning of spring I was working the evening shift so it was nice and comfortable on the way to work but leaving work at midnight it was in the low 40s by night time. Those rides home from work the first few weeks of spring were quite chilly! Still loved every minute of it though.

Oh and my commute was only about 15 min with no highway so that made things easier to cope with.

Looking back to last year, there were a couple days where I left the doors/windows off (actually, all summer).

I think there were some mornings on my way to work it was like 40 degrees F, and I had to where my down jacket to keep warm on the way to the office...

Certainly some funny looks along the highway...

Does being a member of the Polar Bear Club (Duluth, Minnesoooota - Lake Superior and Chicago's Navy Pier) count?

Last Memorial Day weekend in Deer Valley, Utah. Driving topless up Guardsman Pass (9,700 feet), it was in the 30's with plenty of snow still. I imagine after this record breaking snow season, many of the trails won't be open until the 4th of July.

See ya on the Trail!!!

The first weekend I owned my TJ, I took the top down and removed the soft uppers on my doors because I was so excited to have it. This was late-October, and the drive to my dad's house when it was comfortable outside turned into a very brisk ride back home when the visit went on longer than planned. I think it was upper 30s when my wife and I drove home that night. It wasn't the most comfortable ride, but we were both grinning like idiots in our new Jeep.

I know this story pales in comparison to what some people have done, but for a Southerner, upper 30s is colder than we care to experience if we can help it.

Breeze? Yeah a little until June. Then its dead still, 92 at 90% humidity and rain everyday. Oh yes, scantilly clad Women all day here at the beach and even the male. Gets real old dude, trust me (LOL). Plus I see them in the gym all day where I work.

Sick of beaches and palm trees to and no real wheeling areas. Colorado is home away form home and will be home in 10!

So when my son was 5 he and I did a trip to All4Fun in Leadville CO, at 10,000 feet. When we left that Saturday AM, it was sleeting,snowing and raining and 36 degrees. I had on our tube doors and a SpiderWebShade. I bundled him and stuck him in the middle of the Jeep for the drive off the mountain. Once in his booster I covered him with blankets. An hour latter we had to pull over because it was almost 80 close to Denver.

Havent had the opportunity below 50 in the JK, in my old YJ I used to go on late night / early morning runs in the high 30/low 40s in the early mist down highway 1. Man that little 4cyl was a slug but it was an entirely different experience than the JK.

40 for me. No doors/windows/top down. I dress in layers, wear gloves and a ski mask. My doors are off whenever possible. When it heats up (80+), the top will go up for shade. Once it gets into the 90's, I need the a/c.

Last November we were getting to the mid 70's in the afternoon. Coldest I saw was 38 on the drive to work. I was comfortable at stoplights with the heater blasting. The drive home was worth it though. I've been naked all week, upper 40's in the morning. Worn shorts to work every day - hasn't been too bad.

Had the doors off and top down plenty of low 30F morninags. Sucks on a morning like that in a thin work shirt AMD your late for a tooth crown appointment. Worth it for the warm sunny ride home at the end of the day

Haven't tried in the Jeep, my kids are usually with me. But I used to ride my motorcycle in the high 30s -- maybe not the best idea.

When I was in highschool I mistakenly decided to take my top and doors off WAYYY to early (I live in northern Utah) I immediately regretted it when I had to drive to school at 6:30 AM with temps around 10 degrees.

Mid-30's in the morning and high 50's-60's in the afternoon.
Somewhere around early November, the top goes on and stays on until late February.

About three or so months of torture with the top on, then over eight straight months of topless bliss.

I drove to work the other day nakked....Outside temp was 42 degrees...wind chill made it feel like 22 degrees. Knowing the drive home that afternoon was to be in the low 70's made it worth it! Oh and I was wearing shorts and a sweatshirt in the morning....got some carzy looks from other drivers. Gotta love Colorado!
