Do you have power windows and locks? If so could you post some pictures of what you did with the wiring to go doorless

Nope, both are manual. Speakers just have quick connects.

Any tips for getting the door pins out?

Drivers side I used a bottle jack on top of a wheel under the door. Once they start movimg they pop right out. Drill the holes out slightly bigger.

Pass side just put weight on the door since theyre pressed in from the bottom. Or use an air hammer.

Did you cut your hinges before you took the doors off?

Yes, you have to. Check the FAQ and google, there's a million write ups.

Fixed the 8.25 for now. Don't feel like messing with the 8.8 tomorrow, but I have a bunch of little stuff to get done.
  • Upper shock bolts need to be replaced on the driver's side again. I think the holes are stretched out and they're just pulling through. Gonna cut the floor open in the rear and take a look. Can always tac weld the bolts in place.
  • Replace another busted heater hose and refill w/e coolant leaked out
  • Finish my ZJ seat swap.
  • Headlight adjuster on the drivers side needs to be replaced.
  • Entire thing needs a good cleaning inside and out.
  • Trans pan gasket needs to be replaced.

The good:
They look badass.
Quietest, smoothest mud tires I've ever ridden on. You'd have no idea they were MTs from just riding on them.

The bad:
Took a ton of wheel weights. A lot of the inside took 8+oz.
Took A LOT of massaging with a BFH inside the wheel wells to not rub on turns. I'd probably have been ok, but it's extremely close at full turn on parts of the wheel well. Definitely going to have to go up an inch before it goes offroad again. They measure 32" but they're a solid 4" larger with the tread than my Uniroyal 32s were.

I've been meaning to do it for a while anyway, but I'm gonna take it into work Saturday and cut the rear quarters flush with the rear door opening and increase the size of the wheel well in the back.
