DIY TJ Door Holders/Mounts

So I was originally going to hang my TJ doors, but after a quick google search, found out that is NOT something you do to a TJ door because the welds will crack. So I went with a way to just make something to hold them. My build is very sturdy, and will not break/fall off the wall. I have tested it and it will hold up for TJ doors.

Supply List: Home Depot

1- 1x8 6ft Board 5.68
2- Heavy Duty Double Arm Hanger 6.54x2 - 13.08
1 box - 2-1/2 Coarse Drywall Screws - 6.47
6 - 5/16x2 Lag Screws .32x6 - 1.92
6 - 5/16 Cut Washers .12x6 - .72
2 - Eyehole Screws 1.18x2 - 2.36

Total: 33.05(thats with tax)

Basically as you can see from the pictures, I was able to mount the board on 5 different studs. I used 3 Drywall screws per stud, and also used a tiny washer.(didnt include in price cuz i got at different store)
I then attached the hooks/holders to the board using the lag bolts and a washer. They go slightly though the wood into the sheetrock, but I dont mind. Once complete, I attached the eyehole screw to the top and attach a small bungee cord to it so that it does not tilt off the holders. The bungee cords take no load, and is just for security purposes. This is very strudy, and should last a long time. Hope this can help someone in their attempt to make some TJ door holders/mounts/storage. I can take more pics if requested.

You could have also used 4 of something like this and screwed them directly into the studs. I've got some similar but without the slight bend on the end. I've used these for my half doors.

TONS of door storage options. I also modified a furniture dolly from HF to use to store my full doors on. It works pretty well too.

I didn't want to go directly into the studs cuz I wanted it to be reinforced hense the wood board. But yes all of these ideas could work. The fiancÚ parks her Beamer in the garage so I didnt want then falling lol

I like that this way supports the door from the bottom rather than hanging all the weight on the window channels.
