Newb question on soft top

Quick question. 2001 with half doors. If I take off the door uppers, remove the side windows and roll up the back window; will running it like that put too much stress on the remaining back corner panels? Getting ready to order a safari top but wondered if I could run it like this in the meantime.

You can run it like that. It will flap a bit and make noise, depending on your speed. No harm no foul.

I'd be careful about rolling the rear window up. It's easily scratched. And it tends to stretch out the elastic bands. Easier to just remove.
