JKU door?

For those of you with kids, how old were they when you first took the passenger doors off?

The JKU didn't show up til she was 7yrs old, so 7yrs old.

Never trust a happy man

I off road because I have a Jeep. I don't have a Jeep because I off road. Above all my Jeep is a convertible. That's where my love is for the brand ...convertible overkill

I trust my 6 yr old daughter to stay seat belted in, but I don't trust my 3 yr old son to not see something blowing along the road or a bug at a stoplight and unbuckle himself and fall right out.

My sons are 3 and 6 and love it. Driving around suburbia I don't worry so much. I won't take them on the highway or up to Denver with the doors off. Be prepared to get the stink eye from all the nervous Nelly's in minivans.

That is so true. My daughter has been riding in it with the doors off since she was 5. But when I pull in to pick her up from school with them off I can feel the judgement of the soccer moms.

Are you sure you sense judgement or is it jealousy? My kids are 2 and 5 and beg me to take the door off. Never had an issue with unbuckling with or without doors.

Thanks for the replies.

My daughters are 4 and keep begging me to take their doors off too. I have been hesitant to do so because I didn't want the dirty looks from soccer moms. I think I will take their doors off when we are just driving around town and see how they like it.

I know my daughter wouldn't be an issue, and my son probably wouldn't, but I'm not 100% convinced he wouldn't. And my wife would complain even more about her hair blowing.

Took all four doors off yesterday and my girls loved it. Whenever we stopped they asked if they could unbuckle themselves. Looks like the doors will be coming off more often. Now if it would just stop raining.
