Doors and freedom panels off only jku

Does anyone leave only the back of the hard top on for a jku? Im wondering if I take off the doors and freedom panels will the wind beat too hard on the back window.

I've heard you get some drag and MPGs go down a bit but it shouldn't be as bad as a soft top where the window EXPLODES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've only done it when I was out of town visiting someone, and they wanted to ride around without doors or whatever but I didn't want to pull the top off.

It doesn't hurt anything, why would it? Are you afraid of driving any car or SUV with the windows rolled down and sunroof open? No.
