Door storage

Good afternoon all! Maybe y'all can help me out. I've looked for a rack/ stand to store my doors on when they're not on the Jeep. Can't find anything I'm real confident in. I just want something to keep them safe from damage and out of they way. What do y'all use and what do you think of it? Thanks in advance!

Google HOSS or go to Home Depot and check out their racks.

I have the HOSS cart, but it doesn't hold all four doors very well. I bit of a tight fit. Holds freedom panels and two front doors nicely.

I just finished hanging mine in the garage. I bought 4 hooks at home depot each rated for 75 pounds (about 6 bucks each). Did some googling and discovered the fronts are about 60 pounds and the backs are about 40 pounds so as long a I do one door per hook it should be good. I can take a pic if you want but it's nothing special, I got the idea from forums.

Here's a pic of the 4 doors hanging (bonus harken hoister holding the hard top!).

link to picture because it's huge and I don't feel like re-sizing it

I put some 2x6's between the studs and mounted the hangers to those. Took about an hour to do all 4. They even came with padding on them. I also found some cheap blocks of a foam padding that I put between the door and the wall to ensure I don't scratch anything

That's kinda what I had in my mind when I read the original post, but I wanted to wait until you posted a pic... That's an excellent way to crack the metal between the window frame and the rest of the door. The doors were designed to hang on their hinges, and that's the way they should be stored if just sitting them on the ground doesn't satisfy your needs.

Also bought some cheap hangers at Lowe's. Think they might have been $6 each for a total of $24. They are coated, so won't scratch anything.

Here's the hangers: http://m.lowes.com/pd/Blue-Hawk-12-5...anger/3721830=

Just noticed the comment about cracking the metal if you hang them from the doorframe. I thought about that when I was installing mine, and a good option would be to place the same hangers at the bottom of the door to take the weight off the top of the frame. If you line up the brackets well, they'll stay in place on the wall, but won't have any weight pulling down on the top of the window frame.
