Half Doors

I thought Half doors were first available in 1/2007. I saw a green 2 door X model with half doors (it was listed as an option w/o a price on the sticker, so they must be factory doors). I did not have a camera to take pictures, but it is at Jerry Ulm in Tampa. The fit and finish looked good, but there is a thick black plastic frame on the inside of the upper door.

Awhile back a picture of the storage lot in Toledo was posted. In it there were pics of half door vehicles, so some must have been produced.

took delivery two weeks ago on Rubicon with half doors

I have taken delivery two weeks ago on a Rubicon with half doors; i think the thick black frame you are talking about is the top door frame that you remove with two knobs from the roll cage. It is suppose to come off when you lower the top, but seems some people are leaving it on, does not seem to matter except for how you like the looks of it on vs. off

The plastic frame was all around the window. The outside was the same material as the top. The doors were locked so I could not get a good look. I thought previous years it was a metal frame.

OK, I need to confirm this, but a friend of mine just came by today and told me our local dealer here has a 4dr with half doors on the front lot.

NOW.........this thread has gotten my attention......

Half doors are on the Jeep site now when configuring a vehicle.
