    I never found that to be the case. I almost never was on a trail. 90% of my miles were commuting and shopping in town. The super tight turning, short/narrow size, and high upright seating was perfect for a city car.

    I agree they aren't for everybody. Lol. Hell the older ones, 87-95, will actually get snowed in with the even a hard top on. Lol. Let alone the soft top. I've come out to my wranglers, all but the 06, and had a snow drift on my drivers seat. Lol. But I love it. Lol.

    Like they say, you own a real jeep if you have to take an ice scraper to the INSIDE of the windshield. Lol.

    All that is true to my experience too. Never had a hard top. Was used to using windshield brush to dust off seat! Flat windshield made scraping inside easy, and unzipping and folding rain or snow covered window into your lap at a drive-thru was refreshing.

    Certainly not for everyone. It is a "lifestyle choice" more than a vehicle!

    Re: What did you do to your car today?

    the only thing i think they should really make better on the wrangler is do something about that sail on the windshield once you put it down and brake the seal
    it's done only way to get the thing to seal up properly like original is to replace the sail

    other than that yeah built strong
    who needs power windows and door locks when your just going to take the doors off anyways most likely

    yeah a few times i have thought about how it would be nice to have a nice wrangler baja jeep with a lift kit some big mud and sand tires on it and cruise around
    but probably won't ever do it its to low tech unluxury for me

    Installed the replacement 6-way power seat switch on the driver's seat in my 77 I picked up at the junkyard last week. It's nice not to have to fiddle with a tempermenal switch when I want to move the seat.

    At least until this one becomes tempermental.

    I honestly never even lowered my windshields. Lol. My dad did when driving around the farm. But after the CJ jeeps, they made them a bit more of a pita to put down. When they started the wrangler model, to strengthen the roll cage, they bolted bars from the main bar the goes across the tub, to the windshield. So you had to take those bars off. Plus unhook the windshield wiper motor and take two plates from the sides. That wouldn't have been so bad if jeep didn't have an addiction to the Torx bolts. All they want to do is strip. Couldn't use easy hex bolts.

    Yet on the CJ's, there was simply a couple knobs you turned to unlock the windshield frame and maybe unhook the wiper motor as well, can't remember for sure. But point is, it was MUCH easier on the 1986 and older jeeps.

    Went junkyarding. Spent $30
    Got a 1990 grille, right rear filler, a set of bordello red floor mats in good shape, sunpro column mounted tach, and a set of 1980s fog lamps in the package that had been sitting in the back of a 1980s caprice wagon for a long long time.

    I'm pretty sure there is a car out there in the world that I could drive if it wasn't black. I just haven't found it yet.
