Stainless Steel Door Hinge Pins

Magnitude Engineering's premium line of stainless steel replacement pins for Jeep Wrangler door hinges will allow you to replace your corroded, deteriorated, broken, or worn out pins with ease. Whether you are trying eliminate unsightly rust, compensate for years of wear, fix that door that won't latch properly, or prevent potentially damaging leaks due to door misalignment; replacing your pins is a simple and cost effective way to improve the appearance and operation of your door.

Simply remove the old pins and insert new ones in their place without the extra time, expense, and risk of replacing your hinges. As opposed to replacing your hinges, replacing only your pins minimizes the risk stripping a screw, exposing unpainted steel,or damaging paint on your door that could cause it to rust.

Magnitude Engineering's premium replacement pins are precision machined from solid stainless steel bar. Unlike OEM or other replacement pins that are cold formed from rust succeptable mild steel and coated with a thin layer of plating that can be scratched or wear away over time, these solid stainless steel pins will not flake or rust.

Hinge removal

Just to clarify, are you having difficulty getting the doors off the vehicle (separating the two halves of the hinge), getting the pin out of the male half of the hinge to replace it, or getting the hinges off the vehicle body all together?

Jeep Wrangler Door Removal

To remove the doors from a Jeep Wrangler, the first step would be to remove the retention nut at the bottom of the pins. Sometimes these can be corroded to the point where the nut and bottom thread of the hinge pin simply break off rather than unscrew. Once the nut is gone on both hinges, the door needs to be opened and the door lifted up. Sometimes simply opening and closing the door repeatedly while lifting (combined twisting and pulling motion) is enough to get the door to come off. Other times, additional force is required beyond what one or two people can supply manually. In that case it may be necessary to pry the door up from the bottom. Extreme caution must be taken to evenly distribute any force applied to the bottom of the door with tools such as levers, pry bars, or jacks! This can be achieved by placing a sturdy piece of wood such as an appropriate length 2 X 4 along the full length of the bottom of the door and applying the force to the wood rather than the door directly. Application of a concentrated force to the bottom of the door without something to evenly distribute the load may cause severe damage to the door!

Once the doors are removed, the hinge bushings can be removed and replaced if desired. Magnitude Engineering offers a tool that assists with removal of old bushings that may be stuck in place due to corrosion, wear, etc. The hinge pins can be replaced as well. To remove them, sharply strike the pins upward to drive them out of the hinge. Magnitude Engineering offers replacement pins and bushings if needed. If the entire hinge needs to be replaced, the hinge can be removed from the door and body by removing the attachment screws. The entire hinges themselves can be difficult to remove without damaging the fasteners and or body paint.
