doors off

I was just looking around the internet to see if anyone had a kit out there or had pictures of poeople wheelin with their doors off, I had a wrangler and I loved having the doors off so I want to do the same thing with my grand. I wanted to know if anyone knows of anyone that might have done it or if anyone has heard of people doing it.

Theres one guy that does it all the time....


The problem most of us acknowledge with it is after hard wheeling, you might not be able to shut that door, as it does actually give the unibody strength, so it may bend when you're flexing it in ways that will make it so your door aint goin back on right....

I'm going to go ahead and call shenanigans on this. I never have a problem opening my door even if I'm completely flexed out. The rear hatch on the other hand...

People do it all the time. I've never heard of anybody having problems shutting their doors afterwards.

Head out the window works fine for me

The trails where you would take your doors off to avoid damaging them, I wouldn't go on


It would be cool but I think overall a PITA
