Okay Mike you win. There was a little bit more snow on Wednesday, that's why I said I should've taken a picture then, but you still win. And I would've used the tarp I have for just this purpose but I forgot it at my parents' house. yeah I'm a wuss

Dude dont sweat it...I finally gave up on second guessing the weather in CO. Top stays on until CM. Some people think its hardcore to freeze your arse off, but Toyota makes a darn fine heater...and there 'aint no shame in using it!(in conjunction with a hard top that is) BTW, nice pic Mike. :fing:

Early on I did have a full soft top on Wild Rice. That lasted until about the first set of real Swampers. From that point on WR became a trailer queen so the soft top never went back on. WR has been clad with a bikini and half doors nearly all of it's hard core life in all seasons!

I used to put the soft top on in April and the hard top in early October. When the 40 stopped being a daily driver, it because a soft top vehicle year-round. It's mostly bikini top in the summer. I'd like to buy some of those TLC Icon hard half doors with the soft top uppers -- that would be the best of all possible solutions.
