Went Topless....

yesterday and it was great! No doors, no top and everyone really enjoyed it! Days like yesterday are one of the primary reasons I bought a Jeep!

Quick question though, when I was taking off my hard top, on each side where the top meets the tub, between screws #1 and #2 from front to rear, there is a little white plastic peice on each side, that is inserted from the bottom going up.

I don't have any top directions with my Jeep, what are these two peices for?

Thanks!!

Gives something for the screws to attach to.

just don't bust 'em.

and i agree with your post. top down today, very nice out.

i live out away from the city, but made a trip to it for some errands, and saw about 3 - 4 jeeps top down. It was beautiful, and we all had smiles on our faces.

It's a jeep thing, right? No sunroof or rolled down windows will match the feeling you get top off. Haven't run doors off yet, but plan on it this summer.

Same here in mexico, top off, no doors... i think i've felt this sensation only in a motobike... but in a jeep it's different, you are in a full imersion with everithing around you. I love it

Agree with all. Top down doors off. Makes the payment every month that much more worth it.

It is really enjoyable when the Jeep is paid for!

Thanks for the replies!

Some great weather here, but a chance of rain this afternoon, so the top is back on.

I need some type of top removal device as the hard top is a bit to heavy for the wife to help with.

Time to warm up the search feature, I have seen some pretty good ideas here in the past, I just need to find them!

i completely removed my soft top, the safari top that was under it, and put my hard top back on by myself, in 22 minutes.

i've been using my car, so my jeep hasn't had the hardtop on in over 2 months. it's raining today, and my kids wanted me to bring it, so i swapped out tops for something different. it always surprises me how much more civilized the hard top makes it.

I agree whole heartedly with that. I paid cash for mine and drove so much better off the lot than other vehicles I have financed before.
I've been driving with the top and doors off for about a month now. It's going to feel like I'm in a submarine when they go back on.

I saw a very inexpensive hard top removal on another forum ( I think it was another forum). They put 4 of the utility hooks in the ceiling of the carport and used the ratchet ties on each corner. Very simple, very effective and very cheap. I'll try to find the pics of it. My sister was complaining about how heavy they are.
