As is always the case - it's personal preference.
My Jeep has a soft top & full steel doors.
I bought soft uppers/lowers off ebay for $200.
I wanted them for the summer. They are noisy, better not mind zipping and unzipping to open the window, piece of cake to take off & much lighter
, gives about 3-4 more inches between my hip and the door panel, they are easy to store, offer no protection in a collision.........what else do you want to know???
BTW: yes, I like them....for what I bought 'em for!
