how about adding pet flaps for when the doors are on?

Cool mod for the doors-off, but I'm mostly a fan of following the roller coaster instructions...

Having ridden two-wheel for over 30 years, I usually shudder when I see someone riding a bike with anything less than solid foot protection, and I'm pretty sure that a side-impact would turn that meat into burger quickly.

Be careful out there...

X2 I've seen accident reports in the newspapers where arms were turned into burgers but because this device is installed so seldom, probably won't see too many legs burgerized. Any time any vehicle is rolled, any parts hanging out can become hamburger. It is the nature of the situation. Arms and legs usually do not stand a chance against the weight of the vehicle...or even a bike.

^^ That does look pretty bad a$$. Even if you do take your life in your hands driving it.

Who doesnt take thier lives in thier hands EVERYTIME they get behind the wheel?? Do you really think that thin ass sheet metal and some plastic really give you any more structural stability...or will it crumple like a coke can?

Well, it does tend to keep your fingers and toes in the vehicle....but as you say driving is a risk in itself. I wouldn't get on a motorcycle unless I were willing to take THAT risk...it is all relative. Depends on what your comfort level is with risk.

Dang girl, I always at least wore a pair of glasses on a motorcycle, hadn't considered the effect for the jeep. Ouch....at least if you get a bug in the teeth, it could be tasty...just sayin'

But when you think about it everything you do is risky. Eating a tomato today could kill you tomorrow. Not trying to sound like a dik but you need to live life a little.

I think clear lake was saying that it is ok to take these chances not the other way around.

I don't see why anyone should care about others personal safety if it is only them that can get hurt just like the seatbeat issue. Why should anyone care if I have a seatbelt on? But it seems like many don't care about safety at all. Just spread your legs out and really see how quickly you can move the other. It slows the response time in the need to have to switch from gas to brake very quickly. Does it matter if the car that pulls out in front of you is at fault or not if you can't stop in time?

It is almost like being on alcohol as far as slowing response time. I know plenty of alcoholics that think they can drive just fine. But more realistically it is more like talking on a cell phone and driving. It really is a safety issue to others on the road like blacking out taillights. Don't really understand why people take others safety so lax just because they feel like they should be able to. Just my opinion

^^ you have a point there rics, I tend to draw the line when a person's fun gets in the way of someone's life expectancy. He has me agreeing with him on this one

Hope there is room for both of us under the chairs.

These all sound like good ways to meet me at work. :-D . You shouldn't ever intrude on anothers safety, but if you willingly put yourself at risk,then you are responsible for the outcome. it is awful when you harm another while doing it and that is something everyone has to live with. That being said, I drive around topless and doorless all the time. Have and be safe!

Well I have to give a big "THANK YOU" to Inferno Girl for the pegs. And If you wanna be scared to death to drive your Jeep, then you shouldn't have bought one in the first place, or any other vehicle. Jeeps were made to have the doors taken off, and IMHO I like the look, the comfort, and the wind giving my boys the extra breeze.

I don't think anybody was saying you shouldn't express yourself in your jeep. It is just that when someone puts you in the poor house for killing a person while you are doing it, you can go on to the poor house claiming us more conservative drivers must have somehow been conspiring against those who have little concern for others safety. I've conspired so I shouldn't own a jeep? This somehow smacks of something I hear young people say to their parents when they don't get their way.

Are you really saying that if it is an auto, it's not a jeep? You should really think about it before you say what's on your mind.

Have you ever thought that some people are not physically able to use their left leg for the clutch pedal? I have heard of many cases where people have driven manuals most of their lives and had an injury that prevents them from driving the car that they love.

That being said... I drive a manual Wrangler and love every minute of it. However, I don't go around bad talking others who choose an automatic. It's their choice and their vehicle.

God made automatics through man's hands and now lazy people all over the world pay extra money to have them installed in place of a perfectly workable standard gear system. Be careful before you start bashing me on behalf of all of the physically challenged people of the world as that would be putting words there that just aren't there.

So you can put you leg outside of the vehicle while you drive. But you can't use a clutch. Hmm. Just figured if you were driving a manual that it wouldn't be a good idea. Wasn't trying to offend the handicapped. Just saying your being dangerous to others on the road if you were. You probably text your boyfriend when you drive as well huh.

Handicap was a side topic brought up in post 25 by tysalem in response to a comment about standard. Are you reading the same posts that I am?

tysalem is the one who erroneously IMO concluded that it was some kind of anti auto statement.

I don't have a foot peg, however, I do rest my foot on the door hinge while driving. Like I said, I drive a manual and when I do rest my foot outside the Jeep, it is usually when I know I am going to cruise at a constant speed for a longer period of time. Whenever I come up to other cars, I always bring my foot back inside in case I have to use the clutch.

As far as your last comment... Are you just an overall rude person?
