No blind spots!

Not sure if this has been posted before.

I tucked the whole rear of the top up into itself and hid the side panels up in between the top and rear.





Also, I built myself a wall mounted door holder.

Just like a Safari Top

I can't see why people would spend money on a Safari top when you can just do that.

Or you can use latter hangers to hang your doors, as this is what I have done, however I if you have the wood already this certainly can be the cheaper way.

My Jeep only arrived with a hard top. Thought about this mod, but it would get d@mned cold in the winter with no glass or sides...

I wish I would have thought of that.
Good idea

Question.

If the weather is nice enough to take the doors off, why tuck the back and rear windows into the top? Wouldn't it be easier to just remove them?

I think the intent is to create a safari/bikini top, so the sun isn't pounding down on you, and in case you have a spring shower. I used to do the same thing on my YJ. Unfortunately my JK just has a hardtop, so I need to get a safari top for this summer.

To the OP, great idea to share with others.
