I cut the roof of my 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee in 2007. It helped me get my feature editor job. I drove it from Minnesota to Florida then to Beverly Hills. It got lots of looks. Then Fiat and Jeep had roofless Options. You need sides not roofs necessarily.
Now I bet you’ll see Grilleless Grilles. I’m going to use the extra foglight wiring for an LED mounted light that’ll create a grille affect with light.
