Since it's going to be 60 degrees today, I took the liberty of popping off the doors of the Jeep this morning. Needless to say, I got some strange looks on the freeway at 7am with a temperature of 29 degrees with no doors. :p

The top is coming off this afternoon, though!

Is it legal to drive a Jeep without doors? I have seen it in the summer, but I thought that was reserved for the UPS trucks. :)

In Michigan, you must have either:

A) A driver's side mirror and a rearview mirror

or;

B) A driver's side and passenger side mirror.

I'm sure most other states are this way. For a long time some cars had the passenger side mirror as an option.

I have a relocation bracket for both sides, but usually just leave the driver's side in because you cannot see out of the passenger mirror with the relocation bracket when the door is on, so that one stays attached to the door.

It's been "no door weather" for at least the last 498 months here in S. Florida.. :)

Exactly. This has been one of the snowiest winters in recorded history of this area. I appreciate the nice weather. :p

Can't take the doors off my car, but it's been nice having the sunroof and the windows open. :)

Still 39 degrees. I'm waiting for 60! Wanna go golfin', golfin', c'mon golfin'....

We seem to be getting warmer average temperatures than the rest of northern US. *high fives iamwiz*

Just give it a week and it'll be snowing again though :(

We were up in Tawas/Rose City/Clear Lake this weekend and the weather was beautiful. It was actually fairly "warm" off of the lake. Still lots of snow on the ground up there.
