I finally feel your pain

Weathers supposed to turn bad so top just went back on on the 4runner :c

What's your guys limit for running topless? Rain? Weekend of thunder storms? Three feet of snow?

I've only had my top "fully" down a couple of times. But it is in Sunrider mode with the rear window unzipped 99% of the time (when I'm by myself). The nice thing about the Sunrider mode on a 4 door is that it opens the top up over the front AND rear passangers....so there is a lot of sun. I also rock a full Spiderwebshade. An 11 week old baby put the kabosh on topless/doorless driving.

But even without the kid, the soft top will be up in the rain or snow, and the hard top will be going on at the end of the month.

Jeep - It's a Jeep thing...you wouldn't understand.
Triumph - Go your own way.

I see why I'm a loner....and I love it!

Wish I had a soft top, lol. My hard top is upwards of 150lbs. But they're so dang expensive >_<

Used to my top would be down all the time, I could run outside and put the top up at work if rain was imminent. If the chance of rain was 30% or greater then the windows would be in the back. Otherwise, a quick pop up shower I might pull the top back up to keep the seats dry (I hate a wet butt).

I love the sun rider option. My 3 year old is in love with the Jeep, but doesn't like the son shining in his eyes. So I ride with the front portion back and the back window unzipped. He loves it and I don't have to worry about him getting burned or too much wind.

2010 Wrangler Sport, Automatic Transmission, more electronics than a Jeep should have. But hey, it's only got 2 doors. Sometimes.
