4 door JK tube doors

i am thinking of making some tube doors for my 2009 JK 4 dr. has anyone made any? if so could you give me some advice? i am doing this to try and save about 600 bucks and not buy brand new factory made doors. this will be kinda like a build i guess as i will take some pics as i go along. but anyway i think i will start within the next week or so.

Since i totally own a JKU and have built some doors haha. Just be sure to get a sturdy/safe enough tube fir one and some maybe make use of the factory screw holes. Are you doing a full door or half doors. Either way make a sturdy X tube for the bottom or something of the sorts. You would just have to figure out what a good latch would be to keep it shut. Just my 2 cents
