Jeep performence on the road

Have you guys and gals ever notice how different your jeep handles when you put the top and doors back on. Seems like it handles better when the top and doors are off. With everything back on it feels like it all over the road. I have to use both hands just keep it straight. Didnt have that problem with everything off. Go figure.

I wouldn't describe it exactly as you have, but I know what you mean. It was the same with my 1980 CJ7 as it is with my '09 Wrangler. It could be psychosomatic, but it just feels like it has more get up an go when everything is off.
