I've found that I don't need to open the inner windshield that far to benefit from the cooling; with the back window up all the way, just open about two-three notches and the wind comes in low and goes up over my head and blows out the heat.  It doesn't bother my eyes in the process. 
There's a reason it's called Ol' Unreliable

I have never driven with the windshield  open. I will have to do some test runs. I usually have had it closed or layed down flat. I will give your 2-3 notches a try. I had it way open just for fun in the yard. Im assuming with the top on it will actually be beneficial to have it open now. Thanks for the tip. I’ll let you know how it goes. :)

Great photos! The "downtown" photo and the one by the river look like Fredericksburg, Va but that street would probably be partially under water!

Love the pics, the two jeeps look great together, in the contemporary street setting as well as on the trail.

Love the LFC (Left-Fender Cam) and the overhead TC (tranny cam). Also nice use of multiple shots, particularly the pass-bys. Gotta love the beauty of rural Central Pennsylvania! Thanks for sharing, Falcon.
