Heading down to Orlando for Christmas.. Going to be on the hwy quit a bit, and with the highs being in the 70's... I tought it would be nice to peel the windows off my soft top w half doors...
Just wanted to make sure I dont need to take any precautions if I intend to be running 65+ with the windows off.
Thanks!

Get some straps to go around the rear softtop flaps so they dont parachute out and cause damage to your top i use it when I don't have my windows in

understand wanting to go no windows but have them in back/with you. It can get "cool" if the sun goes away it is similar to driving at night at 70* 's and sometimes that feels too cool. Hope it's sunny and 75-80 for your trip than it will be perfect! :)

Hey, your just right up the road WaveBack!
Im down in Panama City Beach.
Actually, securing the rear corners is what provoked me to ask this question. I saw a tj on the interstate a few weeks back with his windows off and had his rear corners wrapped with bungees.

Like remove it all the way instead of rolling it up?
ABSOLUTELY! Been there, done that. The constant movement of the window will cause abrasions on the plastic. Take it completely off.

I go doorless all the time in the summer. I love it on the highway, although being next to a pair of semis is a little scary...

I use those foam earplugs if I go a long distance in a topless or doorless Jeep. You can still hear the radio, but it cuts down on wind roar in your ears. Same thing as when you take a trip on a motorcycle.
