What I have always wondered is how well do they take a hit off road, and how do they work in the summer when the doors are off?

I don't have any comments on them, but maybe someone who has them can say

I think they will do okay off road not anything super serious though. As far as doors off it would be the same as the buzzer and lights. Pull the fuse, unhook, and/or buy those little keeper springs to trick the Jeep into thinking the doors are on.

I am looking into these to retro on my YJ for my fiancee

My friend has his on his two wheel drive titan. I like it cause its a lifted, aggressive truck and useful to get in and out. YET the only time we took it mud riding, mud got clogged up in the actuators, and when he laid frame in pit and opened the doors to get out, it wouldn't let the steps come down and put a bind the steps. Thats the only experience I have with them.

It's like anything else it has a plus and a minus but the question is, is it worth it to you. It all depends on how you drive and you have to be honest.

For example I put lift shackles on the rear of my YJ but they are about a 1/4" from the frame. I haven't had them bump yet as I mostly ride flat ground but I am going to cut the brace back and re weld to get some insurance for the just in case. In all honesty I am probably okay though, as these are just temp.
