Topless Handling
16 Attachment(s)
I pulled the hardtop/doors off my 2013 JK yesterday. I noticed immediately that it seems to handle like a racecar now (relatively speaking). Pulling all the weight off the top must've lowered the center of gravity.

Anyone else ever notice this phenomenon?

Compared to my 2500, the Wrangler actually does handle like a racecar.

Wrangler and handles like a race car should never be used in the same sentence....... ever.

I did the same yesterday. I didn't really notice any handling change, but it did feel like it was a bit quicker.

it just feels that way because there is less between you and the road.

Topless Handling should always be performed using both hands.

That said, I do notice a difference between the hard top and soft top for handling. 100+ lbs up high makes a big difference. I don't notice any difference with/without the doors.

How can you tell without flying out the door opening? :)

I've also noticed a new ability to make substantial wheelspin shifting into 2nd. It was always capable of breaking the rear loose, but now it'll lay a strip.
