Just bought Steelcraft taillight covers off ebay. Also bought Cherokee side door panels. Wondering if taking off the existing Liberty panels will be a pain or not.

Not really a pain but takes a little time. The factory adheasive is strong!

I used a hair drier to soften the adheasive behind the trim. Then I used an old credit card to pry it away from the door enough to grab with my fingers. Continuing with the hair drier and SLOW steady pressure, it came right off.
There will probably be some adheasive that remains on the door. Adheasive remover cures this, then I used some brake cleaner on a rag before installing the new trim.

Fight the urge to rip and tear. Slow and steady wins this race.

Looks like fun! No mud I hope or you'll be cleaning for a month!

Also I heard somewhere that wheeling with the doors off in kj/kks affected the frames integrity and could cause you some alignment issues. Is this true or is it something you would have to worry about?

Just and open question i thought i would bring to the table, not intended to bash your choice because if i can wheel without my doors you'll see mine sitting at home on my next outing!

Oh boy! I had a blast but if anyone decides to do this get a really good air compressor because the Libby was completely full of dust. It took me the better part of an hour to blow it all out!

As for the integrity of the frame the way I understand it from the dealership here is the because of the skyslider option (even if you don't have it) the frame is plenty strong to keep it's shape with or without the doors. He went on to say that anything short of an impact (collision) we should me more than ok.

Either way I had more fun than you can shake a stick at!! I'm also getting ready to upload a video of the more intense moments of this trip

Ok, just a warning here. This is my daily driver so if you are expecting some serious thrashing you will be seriously disappointed!

BUT, you'll never see Veadawoo this green and it was an amazing drive. We are very fortunate to have this great place only 35 mins from town and best off all it's FREE!

You should! It's easier than I thought it would be. The fronts were kinda tricky with the electrical disconnects being tougher to get apart but all in all total cake.

And driving down the road at highway speed is a bit of a rush. There is a whole lotta wind turbulence and I'm not sure if it was just my imagination but I though things felt a little bit squirrelly because of that.
