So, I thought this would be a good spot to sing the praises of my YJ, (half doors, soft top). I was gonna put the bikini top on this mornin, but only got as far as zipping the windows out. There was just something about tearing outta town with my mountain bike in the back, amazing. So, i'm drivin through my city, and suddenly I start seein' all these lovely signs of spring. A new Jeep with the peel-back convertible top open, Wranglers in bikini tops, a really neat old CJ with the doors off. In fact, as I write, there's a 30's? 40's? Jeepster acroos the street with the windows out. So cool.
And everyone WAVES!!!! Wow, I've always had distinctive old cars, from VWs, and old Benz, a Chevy Bel-Air, my Honda tuner, I never had that many people wave at me! (Anyone care to comment on the phenomenon of the Jeep Wave?)
Anyway, I know I'm ranting, but this is my first Jeep and everyday is just a little more adventurous these days. I also have a question, I have the rear and side windows out and I kinda like it. Having the backseat covered, rather than the bikini. Will the wind tear up my soft top if I leave it like this? Anybody else do this? Also is there anything special I need to know if I ever want to take to doors off, are they easy to put back on?(Wisconsin weather can be delightfully unpredictable)
I'm all excited and gettin' carried away I'm sure
but life is just so much more fun than it was pre-Jeep.
