    I dont wheel with top doors or tailgate on the rig but here in cali you can get away with that. In the Snow I rig up tarp and blast the heater.

    If I'm in rocks or just trails they are down. The only time they go up is when I'm in deep mud. :thumb:

    I have done it all from rocky trails to dirt flexy trials . I have had my windows up with the a/c on , or them down with the desert breezing through . My back window has been cracked since I bought the truck . I have also wheeled with the doors off and trail doors on .

    I prefer down if I can , the doors and tailgate will hold the broken glass until you get home and vacuum out the door :D

    Everything's down or off, unless it's cold. I have no carpets or anything on the inside of my truck, unless you count the layers of mud! Does that count? :D

    Then: Years ago, I blew the back window out coming out of a revene. The corner of the bumper came down on a rock as the truck twisted up the other side.

    I was trying to show off a little. That impressed people. I drive with a little more care with the right foot. I traveled that same trail 100's of times since with no repeats and windows up.

    Now: Nice day - windows down. Too hot --> pool side truck parked. Fixing the AC is the next project. Planning on converting it to the new stuff.

    Where is the "winders up with the A/C on?":p:

    On some stuff you've just got to roll down your winders and watch where the heck you are driving....

    I was wondering the same thing. That's the only way to wheel in AZ during the summer.

    Should be one more option. Winows up, don't like branches in the eye.
