ive had the doors and soft top off the past few days.

the past few days i have encountered torrential downpours on my drive home. now i have the hard top bikini on and i had some rain gear on. so i dont mind.

but tonight, i got side swipped TWICE by tsunami waves splashing up from oncoming traffic on a flooding street. it was interesting.

Yeah I put the doors on this weekend. When it's actually flooding, there's no shame in putting the doors back on lol.

I think I'm gonna take em back off tomorrow though. Today was freaking gorgeous.

there is nothing better than the looks you get from people in their cars while driving topless and doorless in the rain...

LOL, yeah even as a jeep driver this one still kills me when I see it.

I'm right there with you man lol, though my commute doesnt normally put me in downpours for long. I do keep a squeegee that i normally used for drying the Jeep in the center console for drying of the annoying inner-windshield mist that happens post rain

I get caught in the rain quite often cuz I insist on at least no doors and sometimes no top during the rainy season here. When I get that comment (and it's happened several times), I reply: the doors and top cost extra! That gets em to smiling.

yeah, I had the Jeep linex'd last week before I went home so I left my doors in Miami (3 hours away) as part of the Linex prep. . . picked up a few tricks and learned some new lessons from riding doorless in the rain. now I always have the squeegee, a couple construction grade trashbags (to keep my bags dry even though they're under the security deck), and a sandwich bag or two (soon to be one or a couple of these) for my phone + wallet + GPS.

Also, I'm so satisfied with my laptop pelican case that Ill probably buy another one to keep my camera waterproof :D.

Just figured I'd share some of the tips/tricks i picked up. please share if you guys have any. Getting wet is just part of being a Jeeper in Florida IMO

Rainx doesnt even work on the outside . . and the droplets are too small on the inside to bead up . .already thought of that :thefinger:

got them on the cheap from another jeeper. they are both damaged, with chipped corners, but they serve their purpose!
