I disagree with the lack of benefit. Driving with the windshield down changes the experience as much as removing the top and doors put together, BUT it is a somewhat of a PITA to lower it on a JK, the windshield looks awkward at best when lowered and the integrity of the roll cage is compromised.
I lowered the windshield regularly on my older Jeeps including my MB for weeks at a time which had no roll bar, but I have only done it 4 times on my JKs for these reasons. A special event like a festival is the perfect place to do it. :thumb:
I've also never had a leak caused by lowering the windshield, they were all caused by installing the top incorrectly.
