Well sure the roof provides some support from diagonal flexing, but with no stress relief (such as the bed/cab gap in trucks) the strain is transferred to the sheet metal of the Bronco body.

You'll soon (if not already) learn about the famous rain gutter cracks above the windows, which are a direct result of the body twisting as the frame flexes.

A proper rollcage has the side effect of decreasing the body flex, as well as increasing safety.

So naturally without the tops on the Bronco, there is less resistance to frame flexing (even if it was just the sheet metal), and it will definitely flex more.

It all depends on what you deem more important. No roof, or lack of increased flexing.
