Soft top config's

So, I bought this brand new jeep a month ago and am tired of all the stuff around me while driving. Top and doors gotta go! Problem is: I work at an oil pipe yard and it has a bit more dust than I want in my fancy a&$ new interior. I'm gonna get a cab cover shortly, but until then, I need to close it up during the day.

SO, can I drive down the highway (70mph) with...

Top up, all windows out?

Sunroof type thing open, all windows out?

Everything up/on, but doors off?

And, yes, it's my first time at a jeep......freakin love it!

The only one I would maybe not recommend is the last one. It's not recommended to have the rear window in with the sunrider open at highway speeds (>45 mph IIRC), so I would think doors off and all windows in could also create too much air pressure on the rear window. It's pretty easy to keep the rear window partially attached at the bottom and just let it drop into the Jeep if you don't want to remove it completely. At different times, I ride with all of these options.

Not that I doubted y'all but -

Took out sides and rolled up back before I left work. 100% good to go at 70mph over ship channel bridge into south wind.

Got home and doors magically came off and now adorn the living room.

Thanks for the encouragement, guys!

if you leave the back window in while the doors or other windows or sun-rider is open it will cause the window to stretch and fit loosely.

I got this Bestop 81041-09 - Bestop® All Weather Trail Cover a couple weeks ago, went doorless & topless for a weekend and a few days, doesn't fit perfectly because of my rock sliders, but I believe it would work fine otherwise. Still working on a solution to make it close better around the front edges.

Yes, that's the type I've been looking at. A couple different brands but all look to be the same stuff.
