The doors come off my JK?







Nope. Haven't done it. I've wanted to, but not worth the hassle right now as I'd have to put them back on every night. Eventually I'll have some Besttop soft doors and then it'll be easier.

They do come off, but I can't figure out what the second gear shifter is for.

I just think it's cool that the JK knows when the doors are off.

I'm not sure if the TJs or YJs do that...

Nope. Now that chrysler decided to turn the JK into a boxy caravan they removed all of the unique features.


Seriously, the subconscious jealousy and negativity runs thick in here. But I have yet to see any of this negativity in the real world. I guess a computer screen makes men out of some people.






My top and doors are off from may to september. The steel tub (yes....omg no carpet!!!) handles rain quite well, especially with all of the strategically placed drains. If I were to have found a unit with half doors though, it would be a different story.


This is my setup during periods of sustained rain for multiple days. Works very well, and I stay quite dry on the highway.

If you were to you would see that the only negative comment from a NON-JK owner was post #2, but then the same poster takes it back in post #15. I openly admitted that I wish I had a JK... But that doesnt change that I have yet to see a JK in Austin without doors on... Just sayin

Not aiming that at you.


After I read the thread through a second time I was afraid you were going to think it was.



Aside from having to unplug them (even the roll up window, non power lock doors), they just lift right off. They came with retainer nuts on the bottom of the hinge, but they were just a PITA to deal with so I left them off. IMO theyre just there to slow down door thieves (those full doors are like $2k a pop!).

The plug on the non-power models (like mine) are for the door-open sensors for the dome light and message center. When unplugged, the computer knows the doors are removed, and doesnt activate the dome light or give a "DOOR" warning on the dash.

I really like your JK... I was told that when you remove the carpet, there is an isolation type material that lines the tub. How does it look? Did you try to remove it?

Why would you take doors off a perfectly good Jeep? You might fall out!

The sound dampening material is like a hard rubber laid out by a caulk gun, in about 30 lines across both front floor pans, and under where the rear seat is mounted. I have floor mats up front, so those dont bother me. The one in the back doesnt bother me either, since it acts like a bedliner when cargo is on top of it (I dont run a back seat). All 3 pads of this stuff is painted over, so its not a big eyesore. To remove it, Id guess you'd have to chisel it off. Its quite hard, and is very "stuck" to the bare steel under it. You would also have to repaint the area after its off. Too much hassle for too little a reward IMO. Not unless youre planing on doing a repaint/ bed lining anyway.

The pads really help in removing the "tinny" sound the tub makes when you bump it with your feet/ cargo.

This is the only decent pic I have of the stuff. Similar pads are on the bottom forward section of the front foot wells too.
