looking for some pic's of the windshield down.

I am getting ready to pull the top off for the first time. and was wondering what the TJ would look like with the windshield down. I like getting the wind in my hair.

So what do you do about the roll bars that are attached to the windsheild?

do they come off or what?

You can't legally drive on the road like that in most states.

Yes, the bars from the windshield frame to the b-pillar hoop come off.

Be very careful with the wife mod. Uninstallation can be extremely expensive. Wife mods have been known to take the Jeep and all other mods during the uninstall process. Also, make sure you service your wife mod properly as often as humanly possible. Wife mods not properly serviced may malfunction or uninstall themselves at any time.

you can here in Tennessee. the law states that If a vehicle came from the factory with a windshield attached that it must be attached while driving. technically the jeeps windshield is attached and on the original factory mounting points. might want to check your local laws first

Driving without the windshield is incredibly unsafe, it's part of your rollover protection.
I don't see why you would want to in TN anyway, my windshield gets creamed by bug splatter every day and I drive less than 10 miles to work. I certainly wouldn't want that on my face and the jeep is insanely windy with the top off anyway.

never rode alot of motorcycles did ya.. Good pair of sunglasses and smile alot. There is always floss avialible.

Nothing like a good bug in the morning for breakfast.

I would have mine off most of the summer especially during July and August.

Just checked with Oregon State police, It is OK to run down the road with the windshield down in Oregon. Don't recommend it but you can do it.

right now it is Hailing about the size of peas and enough to cover the ground.

Glad I got the hard top on right now anyway.

another "poser" non-TJ. We usually run like this, mainly because the glass is pretty pitted and it actually fell out the last time we had the Jeep out (probably the original seal, LOL)

The only way to ride.


















By the way, there is no law that requires you to have the windshield up. The laws that apply (for my state):
1. All body parts on your vehicle that came from the factory to be road worthy. (windshield frmae and windshield are there, removing doors is technically illegal)
2. 2 mirrors including the center and driver mirrors should be visible at all times
3. must have windshield wipers

There is no law that saws you have to have a windshield in its upright position. And I usually go about a month during the year with my windshield down. I have been pulled over but it is usually by a cop that had an old CJ and wanted to tell me about a story. Being nice goes a looooong way.

And I did it on my CJ quite a bit.

Well you do get lil dirtier. I know yours is a new jeep and all but when I got my cj5, I put the windshield down on my first run and the hinges were so rusted it broke off. So be careful. And I must say drining a jeep with no doors and the windshield down is just like walking around naked, it just feels really really great.
