This is my first post on this site, i've been here a few times but actually made an account to ask about these doors.

I saw where Quadratec is running a special, I think everything comes to right over 700 for a set of doors with enclosure and uppers for my '00 sahara

I was wondering if anyone knows about the uppers, I know on quadratec's site they say to use the Highrock uppers in either black or denim but I have a spice soft top and was wondering if you can use the normal bestop spice upper doors with the tube door and enclosure

Also I have the "mirror mover" kit and noticed that the element doors have holes for a mirror, can that hole be plugged with something?

I love my "Warrior" tube doors... They of course rattle once in a while in harmony with the other Jeep rattles..

I like the idea of the bags, you have them facing in, do they hit your legs at all while driving? looks good!

Mine don't, they're too far away. I have the same bags as cmyjeep, but you can't see them because I have the enclosures on the outside.

I don't think you can use the normal uppers for these doors. Watch the video that Geoff posted earlier in this thread to see how the uppers are used.

I called quadratec and the confirmed normal uppers will not work. I bought the doors last night anyways but I would still like to know about plugging the mirror holes in the enclosure kit

The mirror holes exist in both the doors and in the enclosure kit. I'm sure you can plug them somehow, but there's nothing that comes with the doors that will do it.

I'm just guessing but isn't there a set of round flat plastic plugs that are sold for jeepers who relocate their stock door mounted mirrors? They may work

Ours do NOT come with anything to cover those little holes. The vast majority of people do not relocate their mirrors, but use the mirror mounts.

It's a flat metal piece, so it shouldn't be too hard to get a solution.

Warrior Products makes something that will cover the mirror bracket holes on the doors.

I installed my element doors yesterday and when I install the soft upper doors I have a huge gap where they don't meet the jeep anyone know how to fix that? Other than that though the doors are snug and don't rattle. I'll put some pictures up later I'm at work right now

the gap is between the soft upper and the lower half door or between the top of the soft window and the soft top? either way this seems wildly NOT weatherproof?!?

Between the soft top and soft upper which I agree is not weatherproof but I'm using them today and its raining. The passenger side is worse than the driver side and little rain gets in but it seems floppy and not tight. the instructions say to bend the door if needed but I don't want to try that quite yet

Bend the dang things. All Jeeps are slightly different, so we can't adjust these at the factory, therefore you need to do it yourself.

Just grab the top and bend it in. Bend it far enough so that the door is just slghlty difficult to close. (it'll get easier to close over time). If you bend it too far, just bend it the other way. Those pins are tough, and can take years and years of adjustments.

That's to adjust the in-n-out part. You can also adjust the up-n-down by using those little collars on the pins.

Thanks for your support!

Got them adjusted and they fit snug! No leaks and don't rattle at all. Took some stick foam padding (didn't expose the adhesive side though) and slid them between the outer enclosures and tube doors and they make no noise but wind noise.

Love them.

great to hear they adjusted up well.... are those color matched or just the black PC? I'm guessing PC

I bought Body Armor doors. I was not happy with their fit during install. They rubbed the door jam, and I had to adjust the latch pin. Caused additional drama when reinstalling the full door. Lost some additional paint at the hinge. Maybe those issues are standard practice. Additionally, these doors require Body Armor mirrors (not best top). However, I didn't try using the factory mirrors. All said and done though, small price for running w/o full doors.
