30 to 36 degrees going 65 mph up Parleys Canyon which is about 9,000 ASL. Yes it was cold! Did this for almost 2 months as I was too anxious to take my doors and top off when we had a nice break in the weather. Being that I couldn't put those on myself I just sucked it up.

The afternoons were absolutely wonderful though! Ended up driving through a couple of snow showers, some hail, etc. This year I will wait a little bit longer but then probably not :)

Got stuck in traffic in my CJ5 back in the day in a snowstorm because someone up ahead got in a wreck. No doors, no roof, and no heater. 15 degrees and blowing snow barely cracked 10 mph in 2 hours. Caught a wicked cold then traded the CJ for a dirt bike about a month later lol.

I remember riding my motorcycle around for 1/2 hour one time when it was 7*F below zero. It was cold but I tried to dress accordingly. I mainly did it just to say I did years later and so here I am. :)

I've also been known to do a 100 mile bicycle ride when the starting temp was 17*F above zero. That was a few years ago, too.

...not Jeeping then, but 'in a Galaxy far away long long ago' (Bergdorf Idaho, actually) did the hot springs/jump out roll in the snow routine a few times....

gotta tell ya, it was invigorating whether a Jeep was involved or not....

Low 50's completely naked. Freedom panels out in the 30's. I'll wait until 60 - 70's this year. 50's isn't too bad but just not as enjoyable as warm weather. Starting to get the itch though....

I've been topless for the last few months and 30*-32* is probably the coolest this season. That was for the drive into work while wearing a light puffy down jacket & a knitted cap.

Probably just dipping into the upper 40's. With promise of a warmer afternoon.
Crank the heat and wear a fleece with North Face Shell.
Hood up.

First day I had my Wrangler, me and my buddy were installing some accessories when he asked if we wanted to make the news.

Keep in mind that there was 4ft of snow outside and -20c weather that day.

I did decide against lowering the windshield, removing doors and hardtop tho! :p

Nothing like what you guys are posting. Low 50s the first weekend I had my first Jeep, and that was colder than I particularly enjoyed. I've gone as low as mid-40s with the top down and doors on.

I have done 20 degrees topless, but with the doors on. I drive 40 miles one way to work, and wear an Ace Engineering heated hoodie. I actually have to turn the heat down some! Haven't had any days colder to try it out, but I think I could make it to Zero!

Once was stuck on Chair 15 at Mammoth Mountain.. About 10 chairs from the top. All power in the city was out... -10 degrees, wind was blowing 30-40mph. They couldn't get the backup generators started. Was up there for 1 hour..

After skiiing for 20 years, this was the defining moment..
