Archive for the ‘Jeep doors’ Category

Jeeps have been around since before World War II, and people have been looking for ways to modify them since the beginning.  Drivers have more resources and options in the customizing of their Jeeps than they have ever had.  Many Jeeps are primarily used as off-road vehicles while others tend to be used more on a day to day basis for everyday driving.  For those of you who enjoy driving your Jeep without the doors, we are going to offer you step by step instructions for safely removing the doors from your Jeep.

  • The first thing you need to do is to open your door and examine the door jamb to locate the hinge connectors that are holding the door to the frame.  During this inspection period you also need to determine if there are any power cables attached to the locks or windows of the door.  After you have determined how the door is powered, you are ready to begin the removal process.
  • If your door is equipped with power cables you will need to disconnect them.  Once this has been done unhook the two connecting straps that are used to keep the door from swinging freely.  These straps have no other purpose than keeping the Jeep door from opening too far; however, they need to be removed in order to proceed to the next step.
  • Next you will need to loosen the Torx head bolts from the door hinge.  It is important that you not remove one bolt at a time because it can place more pressure on the final bolt which may cause the threads to be stripped.  Instead you will want to loosen each bolt from its secured position until it can be moved easily, repeat this step until all of the bolts are loosened.
  • Once the bolts have been loosened you can remove them moving from bottom to top.  After the top bolt is removed the door is ready to be removed from the frame.  Using upward force move the door in and out until the door pops free from the connecting hinge.  To prevent the door from becoming damaged during this step, it is recommended that you have someone help hold the door.
  • After the door has safely been removed from the Jeep frame replace the Torx head bolts back into the hinge.  This will lessen the chances of you misplacing them and they are there when you are ready to put the doors back on.

Now that you have taken the doors off your Jeep you can enjoy driving around door free.  Many off-roaders prefer this look when off-roading.  Removing the doors from your Jeep is not that difficult, it is just a manner of personal taste as to whether you prefer them on or off.

Depending on the amount of Jeep off-roading you currently do and what type of terrain you travel on, changing the type of door that your Jeep currently has installed has never been easier, there are newer and better designed doors on the market than there have been in previous years. If you are in the market for a sportier look, or something that is not easily damaged, there have never been as many choices available as there is now.

If you are in the market for a new set of soft doors, there are plenty to choose from. Designs have become more modern and no longer feature the tear away plastic window that many of us are familiar with. There is now the option of sporty and rugged designs that match your soft top and come in models that feature better designed windows or no windows at all. Depending on your climate, there is a design that will work for your vehicle.

If you take your Jeep off-roading a bit more serious and would like an extra sense of security, there are doors designed out of metal, which feature a net design. This type of door allows you some protection if your Jeep happens to tip or you run across a stray branch. The net design also allows for the flow of air into your vehicle if you are in a hotter climate.

To give your Jeep a truly off road look, you may choose to opt for the safari type doors. These doors feature a metal tubular frame with netting placed on the inside. This design offers a totally different look than many of the other choices available. If you are going for a safari look and aren’t in need of the protection this type of door will meet your needs.

There are also the tube doors that many Jeep off-roaders prefer. This type of door is constructed with a metal tube that is designed to offer you a sport look, while also offering you some form of protection. This design can be found in either a half door or full door design.

When choosing a door design it is important to take into consideration the terrain on which you will driving and how much, if any, protection from the elements you desire. Changing your doors is a relatively easy process and can be done by anyone.
