    Hey gang,
    My wife and I were talking. I have three younger kids, Boys 10 & 6 and my daughter is 4. Two are in varying stages of carseats. My wife is worried about removing the doors. Is there a 5 point harness that can attach to the vehicle to better keep them locked it?

    I would say half doors is the best option but I'm not holding my breath. I thought I saw something a few months ago but can't find it again.

    I would say half doors for the back at most. take off the fronts if you want. I wouldnt remove the doors in the back if I am traveling at speed with my kids.

    I was there before. I tried it once years ago and did not feel comfortable while they were in car seats. What I ended up doing is getting a JK with half doors and for years that’s all my kids know... they love it and I have no worries. I’m still hopeful about half doors for the Gladiator... Jeep did promise the JL would have it this summer, so hopefully the Gladiator not too long after... but I’m with you not to set my expectations too high.

    Take it from a person that was in a rollover without doors. Leave the doors on, at the very least keep doors on for the kids, and half doors, or tube doors for you and your wife.

    I might be more weary now because of my accident and take it from me I loved driving with the doors off. But I’ll probably be going half doors on the Gladiator.

    As much as I agree with you, I do like my wife and don't think she'd agree..

    Must be a relatively new marriage. After a certain number of years you may not like her as much and you'd be positive if she agreed with you or not. She would have told you 17 time by now. :asshat::lipssealed:
