Emergency Door Options

So I've been reading about the Besttop Black Diamond doors for around $400 from Amazon, but I was wondering if there are any other options for emergency door coverings? I'd like to take my doors off, but my commute is 30 miles one-way, and I don't want to be caught without them.

Thanks!

S

Full soft doors are your only option unless you want to make something different. There are the trail covers, but that would only be for parked coverage. GL.

Ran the Bestop soft doors on my TJ for years. Fit nicely in 2 pieces behind the rear seat. Expensive but well worth it. I almost bought a used set from a member awhile back.

I have the soft doors and the rugged ridge mirror relocation brackets. Cant see the passenger side mirror with the door on.

I like the soft doors alot but you have to bend the hell out of them to keep the tops from seperating while driving. And then you have to push/pull the uppers out to get it to close. And theyre loud as hell. I had to put pipe insulation on the frame of the lowers to make them not flap horribly. Theyre just a little quieter than no doors at all. Thats the nature of the beast though.

I think theyre designed pretty badly and were obviously never tested whatsoever before going on the market and theyre not worth what they charge but....its the only solution.

Also lots of these get returned because people dont make an effort to make them work, or they could get bent pretty easily in the wearhouse. Make sure the latch mechanisms are not installed in them and are sealed in plastic bags with the keys for them.....if theyve been assembled theyve been returned.

Anyway i dont run a back seat on a two door and i just throw my back windows flat on the floor with the uppers on top of them with the lowers on top of those. It fits well. I run them all the time unless i was taking a real long trip, or it was winter.
