bestop window removal

Anyone have a Bestop Sailcloth top for a yj (1991) know if the back and rear side windows can be completley removed for summer? I ordered one for my first Jeep (just got it last week) and I don't want the rain to pour in so I'd like to leave the top on and take off the windows and doors off an open feel. Or will this cause a stability issue with the top section should I be able to do this. Thanks for any advice.

Yup but you need to roll up the corners or the wind will grab them and stretch
them out. Or even tear seams. Personally I like to just put the top down and if it gets crappy out then just pop it back up takes all of 2-3 minutes.

I ordered the top today, it sounds like a couple hours to install, but I read someplace that it needs to be pretty warm to get the top to stretch to fit.. It don't take long to sink some cash into your Jeep, next I need rocker bars, there goes 300.00 or more. I think I'm going with Jeeperman Skidz, no drilling required. Then I need a winch, will it ever end

It came today. Looks to be very nice, now to wait for it to warm up to install it, they said it needs to be at least 72 degrees to do this, in Ohio that might be awhile
