Custom Door Hanger's
 
So I got tired of just leaning my doors up against the wall with a town under them and decided I'd figure out a safe cool way to store my doors and vinyl windows when they are not on my jeep (which 99.9% of the time they are off) So this is what I came up with.

Went to lowes and bought 4 of these:

Measure where I wanted them.... leveled them out... the whole 9 yards

Then I decided to drill in two small pieces of velcro under each arm for the vinyl windows for the side of the jeep.

So here is the left side all on the wall and the right side what it looks like empty

Minus on door:

Holding almost everything:

To top it off it even hold the rear vinyl window!

It holds everything and the Jeep still has room to sit inside the garage.

Will that's it for my thread, I hope you enjoyed and let me know what you did for your doors or if you like/dislike mine.

Looks Great!! Just a quick question because I'm about to do something similar. Is there any chance of too much stress on the upper part of the door when hanging like this? Is the door heavy enough to possibly bend the upper door frame?

Has anyone experienced any sort of bending of the upper part of the door frame? (especially if it's been hanging for months like this)

KenleyR 04-18-2012 04:03 PM

Some people say it will cause it to crack the weld... I personally dont see how a weld like that would be damaged from a 56 lbs door when the weight is evenly distributed however just to be save im going out to purchase some small come along straps to go from the bar around the bottom of the door and back up to the bar, just to take some of the weight off the window frame. I just can't imagine it would cause a serious problem like that when there are plenty of website stores out there that sell mounts that are almost just like this for the exact same purpose. All well like I said im going to do that strap just to be safe. Not really worth a $1,000 Plus gamble... Because my doors will be there for prob 10 months of the year. Living in florida every day is a no door kinda day!!!!:D

Sweet! I've been looking at doing this myself. Great job!

I dont have any pics but i use metal gate brackets for a fence with lag bolts through my garage studs and put a stud support and just slide the doors in just like they would be hanging on a jeep tub it works awsome! Ill try to post pics soon.

FWIW I bought a 2001 and there is a small crack where the upper frame meet the meat of the door, it could have been caused by this type of storage but don't know.

That's a good idea! Thanks for the pics.

Thank you for the great idea. I plan on doing this in my garage over the weekend.
