Body Armor Trail doors

I just wanted to get some opinions if I should get the doors or not. I love the look of the doors and I am ready to pull the trigger but I am just worried about people getting into my jeep.

I park my jeep daily at a park and ride and take the bus into town for work. So I am a little concerned since the area isn't the greatest.

So unless I go to a different park and ride or I just use them for 3 days out of the week (weekends) - are the doors worth putting on/taking off that often?

Very easy to install and remove. I'd get them, but i may be a little biased.

I guess it all depends on how much time you want to spend doing it. It takes me about 10-15 minutes to remove them and put the factory doors back on. For myself, I would do it. SO.....your call. Post some pics when you have 'em on. Good Luck!

If you're looking for security while having the doors off, we carry a variety of Lock Boxes for your Jeep. That way you can store your valuable sin the Jeep while having the doors and top off.

As for the doors, they look and fit great. If you have kids or pets that you're worried about falling out then these are a must. They don't provide very much security, but if you use a lock box like I linked above, and lock your console and glove box you'll have a good bit of storage for valuables.

Let me know if you have any questions!

Thanks guys...I think I am going to bite the bullet and buy them.

I see they are 289 on quadratec, anybody know of anywhere else that sells them cheaper.

Also I read the mirrors for those doors arent that great. Any other suggestions or am I wrong and they get the job done?

I normally carry all valuable items with me when I leave the jeep. I am more concerned with my aftermarket head unit. But thats the change I took when buying that.

Someone had a used set in the classified section a week or so ago. May get a great deal and have money left over. I have the body armor mirrors and they were not the best. Definitely get the job done, but not great. I have no thought on any others to buy in there place.

i'd say jump on them, they look bad ass but IMO i definetly would not leave my jeep at a park and ride without the regular doors. thats just screaming " Hey come look inside !! " get them but only throw them on when your off or in a secure location where you can watch. bar, restaurant, friends house, etc

I can switch doors much faster than I can put up my soft top and zip in windows. Just make sure you get the mirrors with them so you are legal and don't have to switch mirrors every time you install them

The doors are nice, I've had them for three years...hold up well...with a few caveats. First, Body Armor support/customer service is some of the worst in the business. If you run into trouble you are on your own. Second, the doors are not precision. My drivers side door is perfect, but the passenger door is a little longer, it catches on the tub and has worn through the paint. Lastly, the mirrors are really poor quality, mine were completely distorted after two years.
Other than that, they are easy to change out and go perfectly with a Spiderweb Shade.

Best looking trail doors by far!

Pull the trigger, you'll love them.

I use Rugged Ridge mirrors with these doors.

Rugged Ridge 11025.10 - Rugged Ridge Quick Release Mirror Kit for 97-13 Jeep® Wrangler TJ, JK, TJ Unlimited & Wrangler Unlimited JK - Quadratec

i love these doors but did have some issue with the front fit. Back doors fit spot on and double latched perfectly with no rattle. Fronts were a little long and I had to do some alterations to get them to fit and latch without rattle.

All said and done I would buy them again.

I ended up buying the doors and mirrors last night. Now just hoping they ship fast so I can put them on with all the nice weather we have been having.

A lockbox to store my valuable sin would need to be pretty large

Great looking ride blackbelt. I love the trail doors. That might be my next mod...

The mirrors are adequate at best. I don't extend them at all as I was constantly adjusting them on my '10. When I moved the doors to my '12 I found if you keep them folded as close to the doors as possible there is less vibration and fewer adjustments. They do get the job done. As far as door fitment goes I took these off my '10 and put 'em on my '12 with no adjustment whatsoever. Just lucky I gues but, 'I'd sooner be lucky than good any day!' "NYUK!"
Enjoy!

Haha thank you for the first laugh of the day. I think we all would need a pretty big lock box for the valuable sins though.
