There used to be lots of options for people who wanted an SUV with a removable top.

The Ford Bronco, International Harvester Scout, Chevy Blazer, Dodge Ramcharger, and the Suzuki Samurai and Sidekick all had removable tops at one point.

The options are much more limited these days thanks to noise targets and safety requirements. And while it would be nice to remove the top of my 4Runner, I’m not sure I’m ready to trade in the modern comfort and reliability for a 35-year-old, first-generation 4R. The top on mine is removable, you just need a special tool called a Sawzall, and it can only be done once. Not so for the first-gen which had a top that could be removed and installed easily, as long as you had a couple of mustachioed friends.
