Need help! Broken door bolt.

I was trying to take my doors off my 2 door jeep TJ and the bolt snapped and now I'm left with the screw still in the hinge with the bottom of the bolt broken off..

What should i do?

Nothing. Most of us when we take the nuts off to take the doors off never put them back.

Just trying to clarify... is there enough of a post still on the door to support it when the doors are on? If so the Neil is right, I took the nuts of when I first got the jeep and haven't put them back on since (2 years now).

They come with nuts??? weird

if there isn't enough pin (bolt) to support the door you'll need to hammer it out with a punch and replace the pin (bolt). I just had a similar issues.

other option is to replace hinges. just keep in mind most are not as quality as the mopar orignals. and you have to deal with the PITA torq bits!!
