Best decision I’ve made in 2020. The sky top and openness feel without the hassle gets my son excited about going anywhere, even to daycare.

Those of you with the one touch, when you are driving with doors off and side rear windows off, do you notice any issues with the back window being on? Seems like it may be odd aerodynamically.

I haven't noticed any issues with the back window. The airflow seems fine through the jeep!

The only problem is if you do highway speeds and have very light stuff in the cargo area there seems to be a slight vortex that can fly your stuff out onto the highway. We lost a bunch of those reusable shopping bags once before. I never had that problem with my old JK and the soft top.
i keep a pack of those colored straps in the holding area below the cargo.

Just leave the rear window open. Unless you're landing from 10ft of air, the rear window will be fine while opened and topless.

I noticed today that the V8 promo images show the one touch top with the tailgate window removed.

The half doors / frameless doors are nice too

All I see with doors off or 1/2 doors on a skytop rig is a commander half way down the production line. Looks straight up bizarre to me. But to each their own. Thankfully jeep gives us options.

I’ll give you that a lowered soft top does look better than an open Sky One but I’m sure others will agree, the convenience way outweighs the looks. You have to cover up if there’s threatening storm clouds. We can wait for the first drops.
You have to stop if it gets cool, we don’t miss a beat.
Most have to hook up winches or lifts and swap tops every 6 months, we hit a button all year.
I’ll post my old JK and my current JL, the body colored cross bar on the JL is not as appealing as the roll bar but once again I’ll take the One Touch every time.

Like others have said, it seems to make weird airflow in the cab at highway speeds that causes lightweight items to fly away. But it's not noticeable as far as the handling goes. And I generally just open the back window anyway, It's plenty sturdy.

Well, I like my Sky One Top but I have really gotten to like the Hardtop openness that I don't have with my Jeep. This is why my wife is going to take my Jeep and I am getting myself a 2021 Rubicon Hardtop.

Anyway, can't keep the little misses out of my Jeep. :swear:

Don't want to add any Mod's until I have Rubicon anyway.
