Jeep Doors Off

I made a cheap rack to keep my doors when the are removed, works pretty good. I made an instructable on it.

I like it. It needs wheels.

wheels are the next step, I wanted to make sure it would hold up the doors ok first. I may make the posts closer together too and maybe just strap it to a furniture dolly.

That's awesome! Timely, too, as it's about 60 outside right now in Kansas City.

Nice!
I'd like to make a rack that can go in the back with the seat either folded or with no seat for those times when you wanna take 'em off while on the road.

Kevgrn, a man with a mission. Great idea and thought process. I wanted something for my doors and you made it so EASY. I made mine yesterday, put it in the shed and the doors are now safe from summer damage. I used 3/4" schedule 40 and it works great. I am thinking about cutting down the length to make the posts closer together also.

Great idea and thanks for the pics of how to do it!!!!!!!

Glad to hear it! Glad it worked out for you! I'm just ready for some warm weather now, it's still too chili in the mornings for a doorless commute.

Nice work, I built a hanging setup for mine as I live in a condo and dont have much storage space but it ended up being a little too small and on top of that the doors wouldnt fit through the door to storage room while on the rack, I was quite sad about that. Whats the overall length of this set up you have built?

Mine is about 5 feet long, but I'm going to cut it down considerably. I think I could get by with 6 inches for each section, making it about 2.5 to 3 feet long.

Brilliant! I had a similar idea (PVC) to hang my half doors on the wall in my garage.

I modified my rack some today. I shortened the distance between posts to 6" and cut the height down to 19" this keeps the vertical posts under the mirrors and door handles allowing them to fit in the 6" space. I also mounted it to a furniture dolly so it can roll around. I glued it all together with PVC glue to help stiffen it as well.
You can see that I added some electrical tape to the pipe insulators as the self adhesive edges on them don't hold very well.





I also added some velcro straps just to keep the doors together while rolling around the driveway.
