I feel most of it is the cosmetic look to them; they just look cool! But the other thing is my wife thinking they are safer when we have the kids in the backseat (13 and 10 years old). Not sure if there are benefits when no kids are in it.I'm on my 6th Wrangler but have gone through lots of cars over the years so that's kind of relative. My hardtop and doors are off and I have no plans to put either back on till the end of Fall season. I have other cars if its rainy or too hot. My question is about tube doors. I have never used them. What are the benefits if you are driving without pets or little kids? I'm guessing it is a bit safer (in a roll over) and provides a more "normal" feel but what am I missing? thanks
Are you talking about the factory doors or tube doors. Factory doors won't go anywhere unless they are unlatched. Tube doors have a strap on them . If it's so dangerous why have the the jk guys been doing it for years and you don't hear of all the flying door stories.My two cents, I'd be concerned in a roll-over that the doors could dislodge or become missiles. Just take a few minutes and put the bolts in.
