JK Unlimited door stops or shocks?

I've searched but cannot seem to find anything. I've seen them for the TJ's but do they make them for the JK (hopefully Unlimited)? I want a way to keep my Rubicon Unlimited doors from swinging open too far when opening and from swinging back and hitting someone upon entry/exit. I know there are a couple companies that make something for the tailgate, but not for the doors? I don't care for the nylon straps. Something like these from Armadillo Industries but for the JK's.

Thanks in advance for the help!

As far as I know a similar product for the JK doesn't yet exist; however, I think with a little modification you could probably make the ones in the link you posted work with the JK.

If this thread stays on the first page to remind me to do so, I will take a look at the size and location of the footman loop and body side strap mount on both of my Jeep to see if they are similar.

That's not a bad idea about modifying the ones from the link. I might consider checking into that.
If you are able to look at the size and locations to see if they are similare that would be great.
If this thread goes to the next page I'll bump it back up, lol. Thanks!

Not an option for me, I can't wait for my Rubicon to arrive.

But, I do want all the amenities that I have come to be used to from other vehicles. I'll be adding heated seats, rear view mirror w/ garage opener buttons and & lights, power mirrors (if possible), door shocks/stops (if available), tailgate shock/stop, hood shocks, insulated Freedom Top, and ??? That's all I can think of as far as amenities.

There are plenty of modifications I plan on as well, starting with tinted windows, Delta headlights/markers/turn signals, IPCW LED taillights/3rd brake light, and possibly the MBRP roof rack system for my Yakima Snow Board Rack.

You don't think most people would want a way of keeping their doors from possibly swinging shut on someone or swinging out and hitting possibly something like another car? Oh, come on.

I think most people have these things called hands.

I've never had an issue with the doors.

The front doors on my wife's van can swing open and the wind can blow them closed. I've seen plenty of other vehicles where the doors have opened into vehicles. Not sure what is different about the JK. I know it's only a strap, but it still limits movement and nothing is going to stop a strong wind.

They would be nice to have on a 2dr when you're parked on a hill trying to load stuff into the back and the door keeps shutting on you.

Thats just 1 more thing to disconnect when you take the doors off.
