Removing safety equipment

In an offroad vehicle would be an idiotic thing to do. Under no circumstance should you sacrifice safety.

Here is some proof, thank God I didn't lighten her up before this trip, huh?

That's not the same type of jeep that other jeep was newer and made better and doesn't require as much safety because its so heavy.

Hash do you have any safety stories? What if you removed parts of your cage and rolled over? Can speak of any situations where less weight would have made that situation better for you?

You could always remove the brakes as well, just down shift instead

Jerry Bransford once told me if I removed my doors I would die instantly the first time I went offroad. So far so good, and I saved weight.

I removed my wiper fluid reservoir as a weight saving measure and five minutes later it started to snow
