Jeep Soft Top Window Roll

Time to Take the Windows Off

A little time in my Jeep with the top down -- looking up into the blue sky helps put everything back into perspective. Life is to short on this planet -- I need to cherish the time I have with my children and savor every moment with them -- and my new Jeep. 

Protecting the Jeep's vinyl windows is important to keep them lasting longer. I bought a window roll to keep them protected when my windows were off the top. 

Roll them up in my new Window Roll. 👉 Buy Here

You don't want to fold the windows.   

The felt fabric roll protects the windows from scratches and creases.

It rolls up easy. 

And goes into a storage sleeve you can hook up right to the soft top.

Jeep My New Grocery Getter

My Jeep is My Sanctuary

Before the Jeep I would hate to go grocery shopping or running errand. Now that I have my Jeep, I look forward to it. Everything just seems more fun when you are driving a Jeep! When I come walking out of the grocery store, and I see my Jeep, I get a big smile on my face and I say to myself, "Hey, that's my Jeep isn't it awesome!" Sometimes as I'm heading into the grocery store, I sneak a peek by turning around to get a look at my Jeep. I can never get enough peeks.  It looks so good sitting in the parking lot!

Before my Jeep, I would have to take the time to put down the back seats to fit all my groceries in the car. Sometimes that would be too much work, so I would just set the groceries in the back seat. Something inevitably would fall on the floor as I was driving. Well - not in my Jeep.  Everything fit in the back just fine, and I didn't even have to put any seats down.

Things definitely got a lot better with my Jeep, some things stay the same though. My boys still argue and bicker in the back seat. And of course they never want their picture taken. 

The first day home from vacation is usually always difficult.  But, not when you are coming home to your Jeep after being gone for 8 days.  I was relieved to see my Jeep sitting in the garage, where I left it, and was very excited to get back behind the wheel.

The first day back from a vacation for me is spent running errands, and today was no different.  First, it was off to swim practice with my youngest.

Then to the vet. Our dog, Sterling, was crying all night.  Turns out she has "swimmers ear", and she's not even on the swim team.

In the olden days, when I had a mini-van or my crossover, I was involved in many car pools for all the camps and practices. Well, with a Jeep it's a little more difficult to be a part of a car pool in our neighborhood. There are only 3 seatbelts in the Jeep's backseat, limiting the number of kids I could car pool. 

Some mom's see this as a "con" in the list of "pros" and "cons".  I actually see this as a very big "pro". Why?... you might ask...well... On those days when my youngest and I don't feel like heading to swim or basketball or soccer practice, we don't have too. We have no commitments to any car pools. So when the mood strikes us, and we want to play hookey from practice... we put down the top and head out for a drive. 

I figure life is too short, it should be enjoyed. Sometimes you need to be spontaneous and have fun.  My Jeep Wrangler Unlimited has helped me lighten up and relax. It's easy to enjoy life when you have a Jeep.  My family and I love to take a drive with the top down and feel the wind in our face and sun on our skin. Looks like there will be a lot of "Playing Hookey" in our future!

Top 10 Jeep Mom Must-Have Accessories

Top 10 Things Every Jeep Wrangler Mom Must Have

Must-Have: Hat & Sunglasses

Hat (straw or baseball)

Dual Drink Cup Holder

These are great to have to help keep your hands free from cuts and give you that extra grip you may need when you are out wrenching on your Jeep.

Water Bottle with Straw

Water Bottle

Drinking water is important for everyone, especially women over 40. Women's Health magazine states that women over 40 should be getting eleven 8-ounce glasses of fluid every day. I like the water bottle with the flip-open straw.  This also is good while you are off-roading and the water bottle tips over.  The water won't spill out.

Recovery Kit

Mine consists of 2 shackles, a tow strap, a tree saver, tools, a snatch block, gloves, soft shackles, and a fire extinguisher.

Rugged Ridge Floor Mats

A Must-Have for Your Jeep Wrangler

One of the first things I bought for my Jeep Wrangler were all weather floor mats. I picked All Terrain Front and Rear Floor Liners - Black. 

Rugged Ridge Floor Mats 👉 Buy Here

These floor mats have a raised lip that keep the winter snow and salt plus the off road mud contained. This makes for a simple easy clean up.  All you need to do is pull out the liners and dump.

If there is a soda spill or even a chocolate shake spill.  You pull the liners out and then spray down with the garden hose.

A Jeep Tip

The Jeep Wrangler floor liners in the back are carpeted on one side and vinyl on the other.  All you need to do is flip it over to the vinyl side and WAHLAH.
