Custom tube doors

I just finished an update for my website about my tube doors. Here's a few pics. More pics and the full write-up can be seen here: Eric's Cage Build

Material is 1.5" x .120 HREW.





I used Bestop latches for TJs.

Very impressive, my friend. I really like the flow of them. Wanna make some for a 2-door?

Yeah it was black or tan and I was torn between the two. I can always repaint them black if I want but so far I am happy with the tan.

Yes. Read the other threads on going doorless - its a simple thing, you just unplug the connectors.

To me the tan looks great, but I suspect black would look good on there as well. It is amazing the transformation that jeep has went through over the years. Good job.

Welder is a Lincoln Electric SP-135 Plus and I do most of my welding with .035 flux core.

For bending I have a JD2, Model 3 I believe.

You do pretty amazing welds with flux core I've never liked using flux core, my welds look like crap if I use it


Great looking doors, how much do they weigh? IMO saving weight as much as reasonably possible is a good thing, XJ "power doors" are suprisingly heavy. That's agood way to shed off some of that weight.

Axle upgrades and 37s next winter? Those 35s look a little small
