I can't imagine it'd be good for the car's overall structure since it's also part of the rollover protection system.

I'm aware of the lack of safety and newfound requirement for goggles which is why I'd never do it to my car... But maybe someone has been crazy enough out there to do it.

strip all the trim off the rollbar, remove the side windows, remove the windshield and wipers, remove the sideview mirrors and put some chrome bullets on the fenders, delete the softtop and install an oem tonneau cover ...

Looks like it's frowning...

Or that's the "Carp" edition.
