I havent done the all four yet, I dont usually use the rear seat at all, so I keep em. I assume they are the same, but I think it's tougher to get the plugs out, because they are right near the seatbelt roller for the front seat, I believe.

What do people do about the wiring in the doors? Anyone have ideas for quick disconnects?

Aaron,

If you remove your kick panels their is a plug behind them and all you need to do is undo it and feed it out.

i know there have already been questions asked about doors sagging, but would this cause water to leak in through the seals? bc i want to go doorless but dont want a soggy/rusty floor

I have a 00 and have removed the front doors (kids so I wont remove the rears) and I do have a little sag on the drivers side. I am thinking about just welding a small piece inside the hinge to help support the weight of the door.
Thanks for the wright up...

I would suggest using bolts. I have a set that I can slide through the hinge with no sagging on either door. If you grind the threads off it makes it super easy to take on and off. I also can remove/put on each door without any help.

im gunna do this soon so i was wondering what everyone thought was the best solution as a pin. I think i heard someone suggest drilling out the holes to 3/8" and using a 3/8" bolt or pin. Has anyone tried this? Why would a bolt be better? sorry to bring up an old thread
