    Sent this little guy off to be in the TOS display in the Jacksonville show this weekend. Here we are all packed up and heading to the drop off point. I'll post a full shot next week in the species section.

    Why do you have a towel on your dashboard? Do you suffer from car sickness??

    It's amazing what you catch. No, I don't get car sick, besides it's a Jeep and I don't get Jeep sick either. The dash board is matte black and when the sun is out it generates an unbelievable amount of heat. The blue towel eliminates the problem.

    Cuts out heat generated by the sun hitting the dashboard. Simple solution to a hot problem.

    Is it velcroed on??? Doesn't it flap up in your face or is that just another one of the joys of owning a Jeep w/ a towel on the dash.
    Oh wait, I just looked again. You have a sun roof so that isn't a REAL Jeep.

    Bet it's never seen mud. It ain't a Jeep if it hasn't seen mud or you've never had to set the hubs to 4-wheel drive. Probably has auto 4 wheel. *snicker*

    You outa use a light colored towel on your dash Clarko boy, it'll absorb less heat. :poke: Course iffin you are using a dark color too wipe off all the mud from any quagmire you might run that thing through, so the wife doesn't browbeat you about the wash and all, I guess its understandable. :evil:

    Nice plant. May I have it?

    PS, news flash, most folks just use a reflective sunscreen thingie across the windshield to keep the heat down. They make those now you know; for about 20 years or so. LOL.

    Posey, NO. Also, I find it hard to drive with a reflective sunscreen thingie in my windshield. I do keep one in the Jeep to use when it's parked.
