if thats the case, be a smartass and make yourself a set of doors like this guy



i like to call them doorless doors (id trim a bit more than this guy though). technically its still a door

or you could make halfdoors. i made a set last summer so i could be in off camber situations and have my visability without falling out of the jeep like i did when i was doorless. i prefer them while driving on the road also.. they draw less attention from cops and people with sticky fingers.

Like I said, you can't modify the doors in PA, they have to be stock. Being a smartass to the police generally isn't a smart idea.

Well I got pulled over last night lol without doors ( it was chillie ) and I showed the cop my ny equipment laws that I had printed out he read most of the 28 pages and found that it was not illegal for me to go doorless as long as I had a driver side mirror and rearview mirror he did say he probably wont be the only one to pull me over though lol

That's not what i'm saying. Yes, major safety issues should be taken care of, but if you want to drive your jeep with the doors off I dont see much of a problem. Just wear your seatbelt and make sure you have mirrors. Whats the difference between a wrangler with the doors off and a cherokee with the doors off?

This is sounding like the helmet law NJ created years ago that my dad told me about. They created a law requiring ridrs to wear them but riders from nearby PA hated the law. One smart a** strapped the "skull cap" to his thigh. Was in compliance with the law but not how the law intended it to be worn

i think its a matter of the area you live in in pa,i have seen a few cherokees driving around with no doors on a regular bais,just like fender flares i have only had one problem in one town with my tires sticking outpast the stock flares,no one else seemed to care except this one cop who would stop me everytime.

Personally I agree, but that doesn't change the law. Other than having to modify the hinges there isn't any difference.

Better off googleing state and local laws. With thousands of laws on the books police don't always know the law like you'd think. Here in VA you only have to wear a seatbelt and have mirrors and you could go doorless on any vehicle yet I know of quite a few people who have been pulled and ticketed for it and had to fight the cop over it in court.

And unfortunately all it takes is one with nothing better to do to screw you over.

Put tube doors on it in case you get in an accident the jeep doesn't fold up. Wranglers and cjs the frame is made for running no doors but Cherokees were not designed the same way
