O.K. i am 17 and my dad says that it is not safe to drive my jeep doorless. I was wondering what other people had to say about that.
Exactly, about the mirrors. I got a set off Ebay for 20 bucksThat justification for a 4" lift, gets the door opening out and above most cars. Most states also require that you have a mirror on the drivers side, some use a kit that goes in the upper hinge, some get mirror movers that put the mirror on the windshield brackets. As for the half doors providing protection, some I suppose, but with the full frame under there and the strength of the lower body down there it might help if say a motorcycle T boned you or an edsel...
My jeep has AC and I use it when I have my 1 year old in my jeep. Don't get me wrong, not a rainy day and my top is down, but for my lil one it's just too much wind now. That's why I got ACTaking the doors off is what a Jeep is all about! Driving responsibly is the key! I agree with the others -the doors will do nothing in a side impact. Put some Nerf bars or others on the side. I'm not sure why anyone would buy a convertible vehicle and have A/C- it defeats the entire concept. I'm not sure how others feel on this? Prove to your Dad that you are responsible and show him these comments! Good Luck and get the mirror relocation brackets.
I agree with Scout, NOW GO TO YOUR ROOM.I didn't read what everyone else posted but I'll throw my 2 cents out there.
If you're 17 then your dad knows what is safe and what isn't safe. It doesn't matter what a bunch of people on the internet say, it's what your dad says. Leave them on and enjoy the fact that your dad is cool enough to let you drive a Jeep in the first place. I know when I was 17 my parents wouldn't let me near a Jeep.
