Your doors are made to remove easily. Look at the bottom of the top hinge on each door. There should be a nut that holds the door on. Remove the nut and lift straight up on the door. Make sure you undo the check strap on the inside of the door (lift it up off of the hook.

Hey, presto! no doors!

If the doors have never been off before, it is likely that they will be hard to pull off the first time. Just soak the hinges with WD-40 or something and let it set for awhile (I would wipe off the excess so you don't damage the paint). Then lift up like YJXJBill posted, but becareful because when they break loose you can about throw the door if you're trying too hard . I also recommend rolling down the window first.

Definately use some penetrating oil on the hinges before tyring to remove the doors. While you are pulling up on the door try swinging it back and forth which should help you to get it out easier without killing yourself or the door.

I'm sorry .. I am not sure if I am reading the question correctly, but I understand it that you are wishing to remove the stock door mirrors off the doors and put CJ style mirrors onto the windshield hinge.

If that is the correct way to read the question .. then you would have to use the Torx bits to remove the bolts. You might wish to replace the hinges at the same time (they seize up on occasion) and replace the bolts with new ones. A good set of stainless steel hinges are a great addition to your unit .. and matching stainless CJ mirror brackets would be a must in that case

Are you trying to tell me that they have doors for Jeeps? I almost forgot mine are somewhere buried in the back of my garage.

That sounds cold in a Chicago winter...brrrrrrrrrrrrrrr! I really hate my doors too, until January, then they come in handy for keeping the cold and crap out!

As far as mount mirrors and removing doors, I reread the post and think he is asking about both. If you have the half-door style mirrors I recommend get some mirror movers, but if you have the cheesy small ones like I do, you'll have to go with the CJ style or something

Warrior makes a relocation bracket that will not only move your mirror mounts to the window hinges, it also gives you a mount for a pair of offroad spotlights. as far as going doorless in Chicago, you dress warm, beef up the heater and don't drive on the highway.
