Bestop 2 piece doors...

Alright, I really want half doors for the summer and I am considering the Bestop 2 piece doors. I can put the window in when rains, and I think it looks pretty cool all black.

Bestop 51798-35 - Bestop® 2-Piece Front Doors in Black Diamond for 07-10 Jeep® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK - Quadratec

Does anyone have a 2dr white Jeep with those on? I would like real half doors but they are so freaking expensive..

The 2008 Jeep Wrangler is not so much an SUV as it is an experience. It's slow and loud, handles poorly, has crummy interior materials and features doors that provide virtually no crash protection. But when it comes to off-road performance, the Wrangler is simply the best choice available.

There are no alternatives that I know of.

On the same note, several people DO have these doors and haven't had any major issues.

I have the bestop soft doors. They are great in the warm months because they are very easy to remove, and are very lightweight compared to the stock steel doors. I think the matte black doors look pretty cool. All that being said they don't seal up very well, so don't expect your interior to stay perfectly dry during a hard rain storm. I also have a problem with the uppper portion of the door sucking out at highway speeds creating a gap I can see the sky through while driving down the road. I have issues trying the get the 2 halves apart as well. My driver side door comes apart with little effort but the passenger side door requires 2 people to get apart. I'm no small guy at 215 pounds either, lol. All of that being said i'd still recommend them for the warmer months. I't very nice to have both doors removed in under a minute, and I can pretty much throw them anywhere w/o having to worrk about scratches and dents. I know other members on this site have had better experiences with the 2 piece doors and they seem to recommend them as well. Here's a pic of mine on my silver jk:

What if I buy these doors:
Bestop 51796-35 - HighRock 4x4™ Element™ Front Doors with Storage Bags in Black Diamond for 07-10 Jeep® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK - Quadratec
And put this on it:
Bestop 51805-35 - HighRock 4x4™ Element™ Front Upper Doors in Black Diamond for 07-10 Jeep® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK - Quadratec

Or buy one of these:
HighRock 4x4™ Painted Element™ Front Door Enclosure Kit for 07-10 Jeep® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK - Quadratec <-- does that accept a window?
Bestop 51803-01 - HighRock 4x4™ Element™ Front Door Enclosure Kit for 07-10 Jeep® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK - Quadratec

I was actually gonna mention those but forgot, lol. If i had to do it all over again i prolly would have went that route. Personally I thhink the uppers with the door enclosure kit on the lowers (your second option there) seems like to be the way to go. As far as I can tell the window mounts to the tube door itself so it wouldn't matter if you had the encolsure kit or the storage bags.

For the element door, you need the tube door (the first link you posted, the upper door (the second thing you posted) AND to fully enclose your Jeep, you will need the front door enclosure (the third thing you posted) All in all it's over 1000 bucks. Now the Front door enclosure has no weather stripping so there is not a good seal made with the frame. You will probably get a better weather seal with the soft doors to keep out the rain. Both lock the same, but most here believe locking a door with plastic windows doesn't make much sense anyways.

Thanks, I'll research it some more and see what my options are. I'm not really trying to get a "tight" fit just a fit so I can at least go to work without arriving soaked.

I have the doors for my four door. They are a great concept and there is no other way to run NO doors and have something to keep the elements out if it rains. HOWEVER, I think an armless blind man in China assembles them with one foot. Nothing lines up, even the Velcro (hook & pile) strips don't line up on the inside.

What's really funny is that bestop sent me a door to replace ONE of the messed up doors and it was messed up too. I could have sent them back all day long but the chance of getting all four doors and having them all correct was so low that I just had to run them, otherwise my $900 doors would have spent their life in the mail.

Bestop, FIX YOUR QUALITY CONTROL.

I fixed the problem. You have to bend the upper so that it is spring loaded and add pipe insulation to stop the flapping.

Perhaps I should not go with bestop and wait for a better quality product to come along?
