So I am at the hospital, currently awaiting the arrival of my first kid. His name is Benson. And he will be getting his first ride in a Jeep at just a few days old...

Hopefully, that should be all it takes to have him hooked for life !

Hey all. Thanks for the well wishes. Unfortunately my wife had to have a C section therefore I chose to bring the her and new son home in her BMW. There was no chance that I would have her climb into the jeep so soon after recovery.

However, I have since then taken him on quite a few trips in the Jeep and he seems to really LOVE it!

CONGRATS!!!!!! Just became a Dad myself a week ago today. Gavin loves the Jeep. My wife had me bring it cause of the ease of getting in and out of it without have to use her stomach muscles after the C-section.

Our son preferred the bumpier ride of my 2 door to the comparatively smoother JKU that my wife drives almost from day one. He had NO patience with my in-laws buttery smooth GC :-) just make sure you get him well acclimated to top-less driving early on.

Right on!

Now... How to convince the wife to ride topless and doorless ASAP... :thinking:

Our son was 1 when we first went top/door less. We had a bikini on to keep the sun off him. But he loves it. Waite till you get the people looking at you doorless with a child strapped in the back. Some of them are priceless. And you better prepare yourself for the rude, all up in your business, uneducated people that will start crap with you. We just deal with it by pointing and laughing back at them. :D

My son is 10 months now. He spent most of the summer driving around without the rear windows in my JK. I'd run doorless, but since he was in the back that really didn't change things for him. As hot as it was this year, I too typically left the top up, just for shade. My wife kept the rear doors on her JKU with him in back, but not sure what we'll do next summer.
