I saw a dude on the freeway the other day with his windshield dropped. He was pretending to enjoy it, but at 75mph, it looked more like a disaster. Was a funny sight. Made me want to drop mine, but probably would opt for not driving on a freeway like that.

As long as you have some good shades...the ones that are thick on the side, its not too bad. If anything, feels like I am riding on my atv or motorcycle.

Too much work for me... gotta disconnect the factory rollbar and junk.... I don't think I will ever drop my windshield. It's not like dropping your top....

I don't consider it 'safe'....

Get an aftermarket cage that connects to the dash or floor

At least try it once!

This is probably not legal or safe on the highway. I would only recommend for slow speed off-road use.

You have to wear protective glasses and there are some laws similar to motorcycles in some states.


I have dropped mine but won't drive it unless I get aftermarket a pillars and spreaders in.

As the rider of a motorcycle it makes me want to try this.
As the passenger on a bike it makes my wife NOT want a big ass bug to hit her in the face with no helmet on. She has a point.... but its still pretty damn tempting!
