Tube doors rear only

Anybody run tube doors only on the rear? I ask because I have a 10&8 year old. I know it probably won't make it any safer it's more of a mind set thing. Just wondering thanks in advance

Not exactly what you are asking for but maybe relevant anyway.... I run half doors in the rear and mostly the doors keep my kids' junk in the jeep and not on the road. I have a 4, 7 and 9 year old. I like to also think that there is slightly more impact barrier with the RR doors (metal frames encased in a plastic shell - they feel pretty solid). I run tube doors up front because I am an old fart and want something to hang on to and rest my arm on. I have spiderweb shades on them and can see out of them fine. Pics of my hybrid setup are in my build thread. I think there is some footage of the setup as well in my video link.

I run tube door in the rear only for my 10 & 6 year old. Would they help, probably not. Do they help the "happy wife happy life" aspect, absolutely every day and twice on Sunday! They did help as well with my 10 year old daughter, she is a bit cautious and probably would not have ridden in the jeep without them, my 6 year old son is ticked I put them on! It's mostly peace of mind, if they are strapped in properly the tube doors are useless.

Until recently I was running our rear tube doors but my 3 year old daughter doesn't want them on.

This was Colorado a couple year's ago in the summer. Yes I was bundled up!

Ha! So good eye. We just to have this metal sticker that went on them (and fell off a lot of times) but literally I got the last set of those and then they made the change to the riveted logo.
