Doors

After purchasing my used '07 wrangler, I wanted to remove the doors but realized I don't have the nuts on all 4 doors that you are supposed to remove before you can take the doors off. I've managed to unseize the doors, but curious where I can find replacements nuts to put on after I put the doors back on?

The first jk I bought didn't have them either. The previous owner never put them pack on. I never bothered getting new nuts (that's what she said, sorry had too). But from what I hear is if you don't plan on doing any hard off roading don't worry about getting new ones.

I think even for an 07 you should only have 2 torx bolts for each door. One torx bolt threaded in the bottom of each hinge. Easy.

Why would someone say you need them to do "hard off roading"?

depending where you live there is little reason to put them on. One reason is theft, the other is salt or grit... If none of those are a risk, no need to put them on other than preference. I took them off my tj and never put them on again. I've installed them seasonally on my jk's... Install for the winter to keep salt and grit out.

I'm guessing torque on the body when flexing?

That's not even an issue that I have seen. I don't even know where my nuts are anymore and do wheel with the doors on sometimes.


6400lbs on a wheelbase of 118 inches with two tires off the ground.

Doors oppen and close just like they are on level ground when a JK/JKU is twisted up.
