    Instead of a win wagon, perhaps a ruler would be more apt.

    A Jeep is a vehicle that either fits your lifestyle or it dosen't. It fits mine, well.

    I work aircraft maintenace in a hanger and often work outside. In the warmer months the hanger doors are open, so with the exception of shade and covered from rain, the outside becomes inside. The hangers are heated in the winter, but the only A/C is in the break room and offices. So I do not work in an A/C enviornment. When I leave work in the Summer, my shirt is full of sweat.

    So when I get into my Jeep, I don't need A/C (unless sitting in traffic, which I'll run with no doors etc...) as there is plenty of air movement around me to stay cool.

    As for getting dirty when driving, what do you mean? Do you get dirty by driving with your windows down?

    For the Summer, my Jeep stays in this configuration:



    The duster cover ("bed" cover) keeps everything behind the front seats dry. The safari top (from windsheild to rear of Jeep) keeps me dry, and most of all, the sun from beating down on me, and the inside of the Jeep all day. If I am planning on a long road trip, I'll take the safari top off.

    When it rains, I usually just tumble the drivers seat forward, that keeps the seat dry from rain as well as water run off from the top, which just pours into the tub and then exits via the removed drainplugs on the floorboards.

    With me in the Jeep are also a pair of full soft doors and the wind jammer (part that goes behind the seats w/ rear window):



    That configuration makes my Jeep rather enclosed, stay dry, and it'll heat or cool the cabin to beyond comfortable levels either way.

    I can mix and match too, if it's raining hard and I am in town/city driving, I'll just throw the doors on and leave the wind jammer off, and no water comes in. If I am on the interstate and it is raining hard (as in down pour) I will put the wind jammer up (prevents water from spraying the inside of windsheild) but leave the doors off. If I maintain 55+mph, I stay dry in rainstorms that people put their hazzards on and pull off the road.

    It's definitly not for everyone. If you like the outdoors and enjoy being exposed to your enviornment, then there is a good chance you'll like it. Otherwise, probably not.

    Personally, for me, all the above and more makes the Jeep an incredibly "fun" and "involving" vehicle to me, no matter how slow or bad at handling it is compared to other vehicles.

    I sold the hardtop, I also have full steel doors w/ roll up windows and the factory soft top w/ tinted windows, I'll put those on for the "Winter" here, but otherwise I enjoy the way it is now.
    I'll be honest. I always thought yellow Jeeps were vehicles for the gays. Yours looks really slick in yellow, love the black wheels and white lettered tires. Nice touch!

    Rick and I have had similar problems in the past. I am on his "ignore" list and he is still on mine (I have tried to remove that but couldn't). That was then and this is now. I now feel there is some merit to his driving impressions that I can relate too but there is another "holier than thou" stance that I cannot. Bottom line is that I feel both of you have an arguable defense but neither can ever win. Why not just call it a draw?

    Re: Aside from Cadillacs?

    I had reached that conclusion already. I thought his photo-chop of me and my car was over the line, and he was at least willing to take it down, which I gave him kudos for. Then he threatened to bring it back if I said anything tacky about him and/or his Jeep again. Which kind of defeated the whole purpose of his original olive branch. So whatever.

    BTW, Nick did you get my PM about the wood door panel trim on that STS you're parting out?
