Tj door removal

I know this is redundant but man am I stuck! Any tips for getting stubborn doors off? I'm pretty positive the previous owner never took the doors off of this thing. The hinges are a little rusty but nothing major. It's an 06. Me and another person tried and did not succeed.

Couple different things I CAREFULLY tried, and I reinforce CAREFULLY, obviously you've tried picking up on the door as you swing it open/close/open/close. Spray some WD 40 down the hings holes. If that doesn't work I got a long pry bar and CAREFULLY wedged it under the door right in the middle and slowly close the door as you pry up. Put a rag between the bar and door. One other thing I tried was a wide flat blade screwdriver, pry up on the door at the hinge pin. Once you get them off spray some white grease on the hingepin and down the hole, that'll help next time.
