I "have" cruise control, but it doesn't work any more. I noticed it stopped after getting rained on topless. I've learned to live without it

bad switches on the steering wheel probably. I dont like letting the steering wheel get rained on. That clock spring is pretty darn expensive.

I use a rain jacket or the rear window to cover the dash for temporary coverage if needed....but I don't just leave it out topless in the rain either...it does happen sometimes though

Haha oops, I forgot those. I actually usually leave some of those in the jeep for that too

That & zip lock bags for cell phones & such....that way when I had friends with me at school & they'd ask if we "might" get wet when the top was down & no doors...I said "no, but I have bags to keep stuff dry.....in case..."

Edit: I also have a small tarp under/behind my seat

Nice. Good ideas. I'm stealing that Ziploc idea. haha. Used to use those on the boat all the time. Got to use the freezer lock ones because they are tougher.

In the process of pulling the tonneau cover off and putting the windows back on the frameless top. It's a sad day for me. I love the fresh cool air, but if I wait any longer, temperatures may not get any warmer than they are today (lowish 60's) and it'll be impossible to stretch them enough to clip into the channels.

Also noticed that my roll bar padding in the rear is pretty much ruined from the velcro on the frameless top. Debating on removing it altogether, or leaving it on and eventually replacing it next year. It's worn through the fabric and into the foam.

I keep a tote in my Jeep with some essentials... There's a tarp, several big heavy duty trash/leaf bags, a couple dry sacks, a big beach towel, a small Pelican dry box (for cell phones, headunit faceplate, etc), a sweatshirt for the girlfriend, and a rain jacket/windbreaker, a small travel sized container of Windex, zip ties, baby wipes, a small first aid kit. I believe there are other things in there as well, but those are the primary things I think I might need. Attached to the box is a small squeegee that I got at Walmart for the inside of my windshield in the event that I get caught in a rain storm. Strapped to the side of the box is a recovery strap. Have to decide if I want to remove all that and put the rear seat back in for the winter, or leave it in there. I could use the weight of the seat over the rear wheels in wet conditions.

Do you have pics of how you modded your tonneau for your top straps? I just took my windows out this week; FL is now getting to good window out season & I put my bikini on this week, but would rather run my top/window less/tonneau

I didn't really have to modify anything. The straps on the top fit in the channel at the same time as the tonneau cover without having to cut or modify anything. I've heard of other people modifying the tonneau or the straps, but I didn't see any need. It was a tight fit the first time, but it was in there good. My top is on now all the way around.

Just got my plates yesterday then I get this nice surprise. This is the third ticket I have had since I've moved to Denver and it hasn't even been a year yet.
Well this makes me want to move back to the woods.

i do not have a front plate on my jeep in VA... its a secondary offense here so as long as i do not get pulled for something else i have no worries... should be moving to NC before too long where they are not required last i checked.

I didn't think the front plate was a secondary offense anymore. Friends in imports get pulled and ticketed for that all of the time. I took mine off about a year ago just to prove a point, and I have yet to be hassled for it (knock on wood!). It's the cars. I don't want to call it profiling, because I don't really think it is.. but their cars attract a lot of attention and a lot of it is bad attention! lol
