Looks good. How chilly is it with the top down? Once it drops below 60 degrees for a morning temp, it's a bit nippy to drive the Gladiator with the top and doors off at 80 mph on the highway.
Not bad, it was sunny and 56 today.
Didn’t feel it as much bec I had the windows up, butt warmers and Heated steering wheel.😁 lol

Finally, Maggie is complete after the hail damage fiasco. I'm glad the backordered trim piece is installed. They fixed the loose spoiler bolt that happened when they were doing the paintless dent repair, too. The frustrations came with how they treated me in the meantime. It took me basically yelling at them and calling their rudeness out for them to be nice to me since. Things are good now.

I love those rims, can you give me some information about them?, thank you.
Those are 19x11 SVE GT-7's from LMR, and are bronze in spite of looking gray. They haven't been available through LMR for a while but will hopefully be back. I love them - they're lighter than the OEM 19x9 wheels and super easy to clean. The bronze seems to hide brake dust really well, too. Here's an old ad for them. Might check with LMR to see if/when they will be back in stock.

also known as MRR M600. You can find them anew on ebay in black. Either people found them in the back of a warehouse or someone commissioned another run.

Both the LMR and MRR are identical. LMR's are just white-box from the same factory. I have a couple sets still new in the box (19x10/11 gray, 20x11 bronze) but I shudder to think what shipping would be to Spain.

Thanks for the reminder on the MRR’s, I was totally drawing a blank on them.

Adding shipping, taxes and duties, I don't even want to think about it.

Left it in the garage because it's been 30 degrees F when I leave for work. And I'm scared to drive on the summer tires in that weather. How bad/dangerous is it?

if there is any moisture you're in for a surprise. If you can somehow guarantee enough miles of travel to get the temp compound up a bit in temperature and at no time needing to use the brakes with urgency or make large changes in direction you'll be fine.

No they don't magically change to ice-skates at 40F but they definitely don't grip very well.

It is very bad and very dangerous. Try it once and you will most likely agree.

It's not recommended, but I'd argue that it isn't deadly if you're careful. Of course shouldn't be done on the regular (only if you must drive) and you should get winters (if you're driving it through winter), but being cautious with throttle (especially in turns) should work. If you must drive, just toggle it to snow/wet mode and go easy.
Mine's currently at the dealer, as soon as it's back I'm putting my winters on, but I've done a couple of morning drives on the summers when it was in low 30s last week.

Also as I mentioned earlier and also learnt my own lesson - doesn't matter if it gets to 55-60F during the day when your vehicle is parked at your work. If you drive to work when it's 38F in the morning, winter tires will be better. :)

You can be the most careful driver on the planet but what about the idiot that blows a red light or stop sign. There are a million way for this can go wrong. Why would you take the chance? Just get the right tires for the job.

Put the OEM Ford car cover on for winter storage. We’ll be back out in 5 months or so.

THAT’S the logo on a factory Mach 1 cover? Holy shit.

Ty. So it came with the summer tires and the dealer wouldn't swap to an all season for the same price. So my options are :

Find a set of tires and rims (either new or used)

Rip these tires off and put all seasons on

Park it November to March
