Dual Top Option...what about doors?

Long story short, I'm purchasing an '11 4-door very soon. I noticed the dual top option, but I didn't see anything about a dual door option. Is this even available for a Sport and would you even do it?
When I had my YJ, I would always remove the full steel doors and hard top in the spring to be replaced by the half doors (even though I rarely had the doors on) and soft top.
Now with two kids in booster seats, I still want to store the hard top and take off the doors in the summer, but I need something on the back doors for the kids. I just don't like having the full steel doors (at least in the back seats) with a soft top down. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

Your dealer should be able to order a set of half doors for you. There are however, a lot of less expensive alternatives available through aftermarket retailers such as Quadratec.
Also, keep an eye on eBay and craigslist.

I haven't seen the dual door option.

With the small kids you may want to purchase the OEM half doors but beware they are expensive. Sometimes you can find them on ebay.

I am purchasing the tubular doors from 4 Wheel Parts. I like the Rancho Tubes but they have several other brands to choose from. Since you have small kids these may not work for you but wanted you to at least see them.

Here are the Ranchos.


They are on sale through today.

Thanks for the quick response and the welcome. I am a born again newb because I got rid of my YJ...Will never make that mistake again! Been miserable ever since.

I was looking at the quadratec catalog and saw the tube doors. My first thought was to get them instead, but what about rain spray? Once again, for me no big deal...the wife and kids however...

I will keep an eye on ebay and craigslist...great point!
