I don't do doorless but all of this talk of how the doors and hatch add ridgidity really makes me wanna do a cage of some sort.
I didnt even notice the steering wheel, thanks for pointing it out. Personally I think that Jeep looks like ****, but thats just me. Ill take the tires and engine, and scrap the rest.


Think of the XJ body as a cardboard box. When whole, there is a fair amount of structure to it and while still weak does resit a fair amount of twisting.

Now cut out one entire end of the box. You will notice it is now much easier to twist the box.

Now imagine that end is put back on, and cut out smaller rectangles on the side. While the box might be a little more flimsy, it still has a fair amount of structure since there is still a "roof, framerails" and sides of the boxes to resist the twisting.


While taking the doors off might have a small effect on the unibody, it is significantly less than it would be by taking the rear hatch off.

Word. I love that jeep. Personally though, I'd have to make some of those 1/3 doors I saw in another thread. The look is my biggest problem with doorless and those solve that for me.

Lol I take it you didn't make it easy to put the door back on? Took the entire hinge off instead of cutting off the bottoms? Or just didn't care ?

New Mexico Driving Rules...
  • As a general rule, the vehicle most in need of a significant amount of bodywork (for which the driver is most likely uninsured) always has the right of way.
  • Never use directional signals when changing lanes. They only serve to give away your next move, causing most NM drivers to speed up and not let you in. In fact, use of directional signals within most large NM city limits is actual illegal.
  • NM law states that at least 50% of all paved surfaces within the state must be under construction at any one time. In all construction zones, at least half of the available lanes must be closed, regardless of whether any actual construction is be accomplished or not. Construction signs shall be regularly repositioned in order to warn drivers about upcoming lane closures immediately after they pass the last exit before traffic backups.
  • Driving through constructions zones with upcoming lane closures is a popular game in NM. Itís called the "speed up and pass as many cars as you can, then see how close to the lane closure you can squeeze back into traffic before hitting any of the orange construction barrels" game.

Thats what the average person would think...but what happened was I slid down a hill while in vapor lock while wheeling and my door was open and there was a tree, and it hyper extended...breaking the top hinges weld 80% of the way, so the door is a ***** and a half to take on/off...and I didnt shorten the hinge studs/round off the ends yet. AND I didnt think it was gunna rain today haha...

Its still easier than thosedamn torx bolts that are unreachable....

In my opinion, a doorless xj does not look good. They look like they are missing something. However, a homemade half door looks great on an xj. It fills in the door jam. This is just my opinion though.

Doorless 4 doors look funny. That includes wranglers.

That said, It's a mod, so I kinda have to try it.

Going door-less this weekend for just driving around town and the beach. I'm too jealous of my door-less wrangler friends. Door-less off-road wouldn't be the best idea unless I stayed out of the tight trails.

Branches scratching my paint are whatever
Branches to my face - no good.

but it would be sweet through the more open areas.

Man this thread made me chuckle.

Though I wheel through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: For thou lockers are with me;
Thy lift and thy tires, they comfort me.
Thou preparest a spotter before me in the presence of mine obstacles;
