I spent the afternoon thawing out my YJ. Drift busting sounded a whole lot more fun before I got stuck in a HUGE ditch that was hidden by the snow(oops!!).

That's what happened to me. Going along great then sucked in. No trees or poles to winch off of. My brother-in-law was stuck ahead of me in his TJ also. We had to call a friend with a 3/4 ton Dodge to come pull us out. A really cold night.

I see I have a set of half doors also my wife wants the hard top and full doors for winter time.

You might want to look into the full doors with the top you have when I was looking for just a hard top my half doors and soft uppers would not work together

What? You're selling it already??? Man you can't get rid of it. Just shove it out back & put a tarp over it. That's what I did with my basket case Cherokee. I'm sure the neighbors & wife won't mind. I'd buy it; but I think my wife may just shoot me. She thinks 3 Jeeps is enough. Silly women. What do they know!!
