Frame less doors are lighter, and they look great with the top off. BUT, with the top on the framed door has a better seal with the window. Its easier to seal the top of the door to the top than the top of the window to top. I think some people will not like it, because I do see it having some wind noise, especially for us people who actually take the top on and off a lot.
The windows on my Challenger are frameless and it's the quietest interior on any car I've ever owned. If the window seal is done correctly, I don't know how much difference a window frame makes.

I think the frameless would help with handling between the going on and off process. Maybe better to store or just have to be more creative than our Jeep counterparts, meaning in a garage storing situation. Looks wise I prefer the frameless, but the question will be how do they do over time with possible leaks and such.

Now, let's discuss tire noise. :LOL:

I need a certain level of road noise to drown out the tinnitus. Last thing I want to do with my passenger is carry on a conversation anyway. Talking is way overrated. First couple of 4wds I owned didn't even have a radio, not that I could have heard it over exhaust and tires.
