I see that there is no closure about the "door hinge bushing" method. from my googling, I found this link.

Read through it and you'll understand the bushing installation.

Got my front doors off. Currently working on taking off the back two. I might of missed it in the reading, but how are you guys disconnecting the power (wires) to the rear doors?

Oh, and it was really hard to get a hammer and a punch into there to punch out the old pins that were really pressed in. I came up with this method to remove the pins. Basically acts like a bottle jack to push them up and out. Just keep tightening the nuts and it moves the bolt head up and pushes the pin out. Works like a charm.

Fwiw you can just throw a bottle jack on a cinder block and jack the door up from underneath and they'll usually pop right out. Once they get loose it doesn't take much to get em out.

Starting this mod today on my 01 XJ. I am only hesitant because of the sagging issue. Once the hinge pin is out , all you do is replace it with a 5/16? or drill out the hinges to accept a 3/8?
