I had my doors and roof off til very late October on my JLUR, only reason I put them back on was because I went on vacation and park it outside. This year I plan on riding naked as soon as spring start and have them off til winter starts, ill add tube doors and a mesh/shade on top to make it a little more comfortable.Oh you have a Gladiator? That’s great. If I had one I’d definitely fabricate something to hold the doors.
Tube doors are great on a Wrangler but they’re really only good for local driving or a same day trip. I’d love to take the 3 hour drive upstate “naked” for the weekend but it gets cold, it rains suddenly, animals could make a bed out of your Jeep etc. The best I can do is drive up with doors, take em off up there, drop on some mirrors and go. But at night doors go back on.
You’re gonna think I’m crazy but I love an open Jeep so much I actually considered buying a trailer to haul/store my doors for the trip.
I also commute very early and it's a tad bit chilly but still bearable for me. Just got to layer up and turn on the heater full blast along with the heater seats and steering wheel. Lol. I also use my motorcycle as my daily driver so driving naked is like a luxury to me lol.
