"As the weather warms up, it’s not uncommon to find more Broncos and Jeeps with their doors and tops removed. In fact, the popularity of this feature has driven the demand for more open adventure vehicles for decades, which ultimately led Ford to offer the new Bronco with fully removable doors and tops. But how practical is it to drive without them?"

"Matt sets out on this episode to answer for himself whether the removable doors and top on his Bronco are features worth utilizing or just gimmicks to get people to buy them. Clearly, having open air in an off-road vehicle is nothing new, and the freedom that comes with it can be exhilarating to enthusiasts. But taking off your doors and top can have its downsides as well."

"Throughout this episode, Matt shows us the proper process for removing your hard top and doors on the new Bronco, then takes us on a test-drive to describe some tips and tricks to driving without them, and finally gives us his own verdict on the practicality of driving around town and the trails in an open air vehicle. We hope this video helps you decide if removing your doors and top is worth it or not."

Makes me want a TopLift or RollNJack that much more. But with the Tuffy Deck Enclosure installed I know the TopLift won't work.

I was eyeballing the Roll-n-Jack. But seriously considering a ceiling mounted pulley system to lift from the rack.

Would be curious if his thoughts change in terms of safety with the Ford Tube Doors on
