I don't have a link handy, but the short of it is you can not do it unless if it came stock (old CJ) without doors.

The actual section of the Motor Vehicle Act is linked on BC4x4.COM.

The long and the short of it is this:
Vehicles that are manufactured with doors are REQUIRED to have said doors attached and on the vehicle. Period. The fact that the doors are made to be easily removed is irrelevant.

The only vehicles that can legally run doorless are those which were manufactured and sold with doors as an option. Note that this does not mean vehicles that have several different door styles available from the manufacturer (ie. YJ and TJ had full and half-door options). The spirit (and the wording and interpretation) of this section of the act is that the vehicle must have been available from the manufacturer with NO DOORS in standard trim. As noted above, the last vehicle which meets the criteria and can therefore LEGALLY drive doorless is the CJ.

That having been said, MOST police will not pull you over for running doorless providing you 1) have at least a driver's side side-view mirror attached and 2) are not driving around like a testosterone fuelled idiot with something to prove.

I used to own a YJ drove doorless for the better part of 11 summers and never got pulled over or ticketed for it. Then again, I didn't call attention to myself when I did.

Hmm..
 
You brought up a good topic. You see, I have only owned my very first Wrangler, let alone, car-- for two days now. I thought it would be perfectly normal and legal to take the doors off too. Guess not, huh?

What kind of Doorless Side-View Mirrors do you guys recommend?

Bless,
Big Smoke

I don't know about the mirror relocation but I can tell you I drove without doors and with no mirrors a few times and I got pulled over once and was given a ticket for a cracked windshield. No mention of the doors our mirrors from him.

Long-stem Harley-Davidson mirror slides perfectly into the LH upper door hinge on the body once the doors are removed. Threaded section goes through enough to get a washer and nut threaded on so the mirror doesn't move.

PN# 91910-90A for a black one. They also come in chrome. :thumbsup:

Here's a pic of the chrome one I used on my old '03 Rubicon.

Here in BC you will not typically get harassed but you do have to have a rear view mirror. 75.00 fine for not having one.
