I am so excited that Spring will be arriving soon. Enough of Old Man Winter. It was a mild winter expect for that supposed snow storm that did transpire, I missed the sun in my face and wind in my hair days.
With Spring arriving that means I can start driving with my top down, but there are always precautions you must take.
When you have a Jeep Wrangler you can't just put your top down, hop in, and hit the road. Well... if you get prepared, you can do just that. But it takes some thought to "Be Prepared".
Here are some tips I learned
"Going Topless in My Jeep".
Topless Jeep Driving DO's & DON'T's
1. Make sure your top folds back into the perfect Jeep"W". This keeps the soft top lasting longer.

2. Don't park under trees that are shedding their blooms or under trees with lots of birds hanging out in them.
3. When you are going 65 mph down the interstate, and you have long hair, tie it back, or put on a hat. There is a high potential you will go blind momentarily, and crash.
4. Leave No Trace is definitely a principal you should use for the inside of your Jeep. You don't want that "litter fine" when trash goes sailing out the top of your Wrangler.
5. Anything you want to keep in your Jeep make sure it's tied down.
6. When you bring your drink in the Jeep make sure it has a lid. Those Jeep rides become very bumpy.
7. When you have kids you will want to have a blanket for each of them. Even when it's warm outside the back seats tend to get a little chilly for the little ones.
8. Spray your floor mats with bug spray. Some say spiders like to spin their web inside your Jeep. Fingers Crossed -- I haven't had this issue yet.
9. When it's sunny out, keep sunscreen handy.
Or get a purple sun shade
10. Don't leave valuables laying around. Leave 'em home or lock 'em up in the glove box or console.
