Good Stuff man I really dig it. Question for you: I've heard things about XJ's having rigidity issues once the doors are removed. Was that rectified with the frame stiffeners? Thanks.

The frame stiffeners helped a lot . It feels like you have a real frame

We'll I finally moved to Bend,Or. A couple months ago and life has been busy. All I've done to the xj lately is I bought a kayak and got it mounted on top.

Decided to go doorless on all four doors. Should have done this a long time ago.

Modified all my hinges today for quick release . Still have the wires to unplug but at least the removal of the doors is quick.
