Here's a rack that will have you thinking about buying a set of soft doors...

Looks pretty nasty to me.

yeah. agreed. I think soft doors are the way to go. either that or just figure out how to leave the kids home in the morning...

Eh, it's getting to the time of year here where it's not gonna matter anyway as the morning temps are warm enough.

There's only one thing I like more than my Jeep...she'd probably hit me if I said otherwise.

Yep, that's the one I was thinking of.

Ah why didn't I remember this. There is a kid at school that always takes off his top soft widows on the frames and puts them behind his spare tire. I guess he made a bracket, but you could do the same thing with some soft doors

This is one of the ugliest things I've ever seen on a Jeep ... it's worse than the dancing Mexican Jeep, even!

Is there a "Black Jeep Club?"

Door Rack Carrier

I'm not sure how my site got onto this board (www.sixtoesinnovations.com) but I have to say that my rack is much more compact than the one that goes into the receiver. It also looks like the doors might stick out the right side of the Jeep a little.

I made the rack because I live in Arizona and you can go out on BEAUTIFUL days without doors, and if you're not back before nightfall, you freeze your butt off! Plus driving to Tucson or Phoenix is a hassle on the highway without doors, but once you get there in town, it's nice to have them off.

I have just returned from a deployment and am now working like crazy to get a working prototype of my Door Caddy done. I am planning on selling it for around $200-$275, depending on how much the materials cost me. There's almost 20 linear feet of tubing in the thing! I will have different brackets for CJ7's, 5's, and the new 2 and 4 Wranglers with the god-awful bumpers!
Anyway- hopefully within the next month I'll have a rack on my web site. The best I can do is to say 'keep an eye on my site starting in July!'.

Bestop Super doors... They work great. I can slide the uppers behind the rear seat so if it rains I can stop and slap them on. The lowers can pop out and get thrown back there too. They are great for the summer. I use my full doors in the winter with the hardtop and every once in a while on rainy days. A roll down window is nice....
The idea of strapping the doors full open is the craziest thing I have read on the forum so far. Even if you could get it to work it would take the worlds most unaerodynamic passenger vehicle and put a parachute on it.

That's my method too. Makes for some cold rides in the morning, but it's worth it for the afternoons.
My doors won't go back on until October.

I actually drew up plans for one that you could lock your doors to. Wouldn't be hard to weld either, but I've not a welder, nor raw materials right now.


My suggestion would be a big jacket, or soft doors.
