Need advice

What size socket/wrench do you need to remove the doors and top from a yj? Or is it a screw driver? (don't have the yj yet is why I ask)

My doors, both half and full, just slide on and off. And what kind of top?

93 YJ, 6 cyl,3.5" BDS,1" Prothane BL,1/2" booms, 33" Mickey Thompson MTZ on MT Beadlocks.

Hard top. I figured the door hinge pivot point was held in with a nut or something. And the hard top has screws/bolts in it too doesn't it?

Its either a 1/2" or a 13mm. I'm thinking the former though. I believe it is a 5/16" pin.

The hard top is a little different. To get a torx socket set for the rear of the hardtop and for the front it could be anything from Phillips to a 5/16 hex head. There are a few different types for the header up front.

Basically, if you own a Yj you should have all the torx sockets and a boat load more tools because its gonna need them.

Thanks for the info! I pick up my yj Monday, I'll have to stop by auto zone and collect all the sockets and tools I'll need. By the way, can you buy clamp on mirrors for use without doors at auto stores or only online?

Depending on your local laws, you can make something work. I preferred the Olympic mirrors that install in the aforementioned door hinges because they're legal here yet functional because when I'm doorless, I feel more vulnerable. The quadratec rep on this site will get you squared away at a killer price. Visit the vendor section to contact them about it.

Congrats on your jeep, we are here to help with the nuances you'll encounter as a new to you Yj owner. Try harbor freight for hand tools, they're cheaper and have a lifetime warranty. I use them on my tractors and have yet to break one yet.

Seems you've got a myriad options in your vernacular account today.

Just don't say "edifice".
