Sooo embarrassing...

Took off my doors couple days ago and decided to put them back on today. It was pretty easy to just remove the doors myself but when i tried to put them back on, they just wouldn't pop back in I has to get help from this girl who was parking her car next to me to help me carry the door and put them back on..... embarrassing moment of the day.

ps: i got her # tho.

That's even better

I haven't taken my doors off yet but the front ones are at least 60lbs which would be difficult to guide into the hinges

Its real hard for me to do it. but im 6 ft hitting 139 pounds. So me struggling is kind of self explanatory. Just takes some practice I suppose but i can do it.

i am just a little over 5ft and have taken off and put on many full doors at work no problem

a good little trick is to put a little vasoline on your pins..helps them slide on easier

I have a hard time putting them back on, off is no problem though.

I have poor balance when lifting heavy things all while trying to line up the hinges. I have done it before but now i get help

haha im 5' 9", 150 lb. I'm not the super buff type but since i fence, lifting the door is no problem. but lining up the hinges was a pain in the a$$ (also cuz it was a bit dark). I put the doors back on at about 45 degree angle, is it easier if it's 90 degree?

yeah I know what you mean. Sometimes things come out easily but getting back to same position is remarkably tough. I had so many situations like these..

i m sorry but this thread makes me feel pretty good about myself,,,
i just turned 50yrs.old im 5ft 2in. and weigh in at150..and have zero problem lifting full doors or well anything up to 200lbs, just yesterday me and my son put a 500lb frontend loader bucket in the back of a full size pickup bed..
and have never been a friend of the gym.--i guess being an old dirt farmer cutting and splitting firewood fencing and hanging alot of gates and just plain ole good hard work has been my friend..plus fighting men 3 times my size on a regular basis has,nt hurt me either(mma)--lol

but really it just takes some practice you did roll down the window didny ya, and the 90 degree angle will help..when i reinstall i dont really even think about it...

and i truley belive things happen for a reason-----use that #
best of luck and GOD BLESS

Tj was easier. I used to roll the window down and put one arm through-other from the bottom.
I had my Jk doors off once. To be honest-forgot on how I did it- doors were heavier though

just had to check

Got me thinking/wondering. Hadn't had the full doors off my 94 YJ for awhile and figured it would be a good time to grease them. Took off both doors, creased hinge and put back on in about 3 minutes.

5'10", 235lb and just turned 70 years old.

I'll admit, putting them on imo is def harder cuz if u don't line it up.perfectly the first time you spaz and wiggle around for awhile to get it in. I can see where the issue is.
