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.

You don't want to fold the windows.

The Window Roll protects from scratches

The Window Roll has straps to hold the windows together

The windows can be stored in a bag

The felt fabric roll protects the windows from scratches and creases. It rolls up easy, and goes into a storage sleeve that you can hook up right to the soft top.

This product I bought myself and no payment was received for this review.

Jeep My New Grocery Getter

My Jeep is My Sanctuary

My Jeep make Errands fun

My Jeep Make Errands Fun

Before my Jeep I would hate to go grocery shopping or run errands. 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!

My Groceries Fit

Before my Jeep, I would have to take 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 on the back seat. Something inevitably would fall on the floor as I was driving. Well - not in my Jeep.  Everything fits 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.  

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. 
My son and I put the Jeep's top down

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. 

My son and I play hookey

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!

Must-Have: Hat & Sunglasses

Hat (straw or baseball)

We must be able to see while driving. The hat keeps our hair from flying all over the place while the top is down.


When the top is down the sun is a little stronger.

EK Sports Grab Handles

I have purple grab handles on my roll bar and a set of Wild Boar ones on my A-pillar. These come in handy when you have a lifted Jeep.

Dual Drink Cup Holder 

Upgraded Drink Holder

I like my new cup holder because of the place for trash, but the best part is the cup holders are separated. Now my kids won't fight about each other's drink is touching the others. 

Mechanix Gloves

Mechanix Gloves 

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

Rugged Ridge Logo

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.

5 Must Have Winter Accessories 👉 Watch Here

(Updated January 2024) After 8 years of having these floor mats I highly recommend these liners for your Jeep Wrangler. 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 liner in the back is carpeted on one side and vinyl on the other.  All you need to do is flip it over to the vinyl side and WAHLAH.
