Maybe if he had no seatbelt he would have been thrown clear or maybe if he had his doors on he wouldn't have fallen out. Point is any vehicle without doors or a top is more inherently dangerous than one with a top and doors.
There's always exceptions. Sounds more like seatbelt failure was the ultimate cause, not being doorless.

One of the tests for convertibles is keeping the passenger in during a rollover event. Proper seat belt use will keep you inside the confines of the passenger compartment, doors or not.

Yeah, those seatbelts in the old CJs leave allot to be desired.

you do know safety standards have evolved over the years, right? i think the lack of a roll bar would be more problematic in many of those cj's, eh?

That's the same sort of mouthbreathing logic that believes that you don't need to wear a seat belt because you can just push away from the dash. The point wasn't about whether someone loses a leg, its about someone not being able to react in time to prevent someone else from gettin hurt. Its evident that you only care about yourself so I will let the rest of your post go without reply because its about as worthless as the other vomit you have posted thus far.

Guys! This is what it is about!

Reaction time and nothing else.... If your foot is out the door only a non thinking person will say that they are just as fast to gain full control of the vehicle when a fraction of a second is the difference between a fender bender, a miss, or a fatality.

I tried the whole peg thing once or twice. More like "foot on rock slide" thing. Didn't find it comfortable, but then again I'm not the most limber person in the world either.

To each his/her own. In my state there is a law stating that shoes must be worn when driving and feet cannot be outside the vehicle or on the dashboard. This applies to all locations within the vehicle.

Just in case anyone wasn't aware. The brake pedal still works just fine even if you don't press the clutch.

Couldn't there be some sort of compromise? Like instead of a peg to hold your foot so your twig and berries can get some ram air up your shorts leg, you could build a bracket that holds a 3.5" flex hose that you can run to your nether regions for ventilation? As for the errant wasp that someone mentioned before, one could install a dry paper filter within said flex tube to filter out undesirables like dust and stinging insects. A special vacuum formed cold-air-induction ball chamber could be fashioned (in small medium, large, and Anticanman sizes) to better direct and circulate the fresh country air collected. I bet some one on here could rig that set up outta' $23.00 at Home Depot.

Damn, after proofing this, I so want to draw up schematics and put together a materials list.

FYI:

True, brake pedal will still work. Stopping distance on the other hand "will for sure" be greatly affected.

Careful, I had a bunch of people argue that there is no difference in stopping distance because the brakes are just "stronger than the motor so it doesn't matter".

In fact, I'm half tempted to go look for that thread so I can hit my head against a wall for a while.

We judge a little but wil see you through til you get it right. Sometimes even on your doorstep.

I copied this from another thread. I thought it applies here too.

I would just pop the tranny into neutral, but yes you are correct, not only will you be slowing down the jeep you will also have to slow down the transmission which also has the rpms of the engine behind it.
