JL doors are easier to open vs JK if you lack opposable thumbs. But soft top are like popping open a Pringles can

I'm old with sensitive eyes. Glare is a really big problem for me. The only time I go topless is in my 1946 CJ-2A for parades. All my other Willys and modern Jeeps keep their tops to protect my eyes. I wear a wide brim hat and sunglasses while inside the Jeep with the top on and use the sun visors a lot.
In 10 years, the only time the top has been off of the JK was to install the Hot Head headliners.
So
I take the doors off whenever I can. One nice, dry summer I drove to work with no doors for two months. It was awesome. Tube doors, yeah.
And the best part, my old tube doors from the JK fit the new JL. Woohoo!

Where's the poll choice for "it's pouring out"? (Pacific Northwet). I get maybe three months of clear skies in a good year. Also, yeah, driving to work and parking outside, I won't take the time to futz with the top... But I would on the way home.

LOL, I can't even pretend to take credit for that one. There is even a "Jeep hair, don't care" expression :)
Now that I have my Jeep when it is not 100 and 110 Heat Index I run my Sky Power top open. You mentioned Jeep hair. I have even gone as far as to Get a HIGH & Tight hair cut now. I got tired of hair blowing all over my head. Hats bother my head so don't wear them much. One already blew off going 75 on the freeway. Poof, it's gone. :rock: Can't wait till Texas Winter !! Our normal high for today is 88 it's 98 today. Too hot for Sept 17th

I take the top and doors off on the weekends. I would love to leave them off all the time but where I work it sits in the open and I can’t see it, and the one time I did take it to work naked I had a coworker tell me that someone was sitting in the passenger seat taking selfie’s

Had a hard top TJ. Top was too heavy so I only took it off for one summer. When I had people help me lift the top back on a family of spiders built a home underneath it. I had arachnophobia back then.

I knew I would get another wrangler one day and I told myself I would never buy a hard top again. I didn’t enjoy my TJ because I never took the top off and since I don’t off road the Wranglers are all about being convertibles for me.

Soft tops are not easy to find so I ordered one. I love my Sunrider soft top!! First thing I did when I brought it home was yank the windows out. I’ve been driving safari mode the entire two weeks I’ve had it with the exception of a few days I had to put the windows back in because of rain. The windows are currently in now because it will rain here till Friday so I am blue.

I hate the sun on me so I’ll pull the top back only during summer nights. I’m throughly enjoying safari mode right now! I get open air and still feel like I have privacy. Oh and the windows are ridiculously easy to take in and out.
