Half Doors on Wrangler Unlimited - Sahara???

do you get half metal doors for a '08 W-U Sahara? ??

I kind of don't dig the 4 full door look when you take off the top?

I believe they are a factory option. But do not come standard. I personally love the full doors.

I do not see it on the jeep site in the build your own as an option but I remember seeing it in the brochure...Maybe not available on Sahara? Ask your dealer but I know they are in the brochure as an available option.

Half doors are a factory option here. The cheapest OEM half doors I've seen available from a dealer are going for $5600.00.

Yes, it is pretty expensive and doesn't include paint. There is a guy on another forum that bought all of the parts and assembled his own half doors. The parts set him back $6200.00. Bestop makes tube doors and covers that may fit your needs.

Yes. I did go through the Bestop website... I did notice the tube doors which I may settle for instead ... now that I've changed my mind and plan on getting the two-door sport ..i think things should turn out a little more cheaper ...

Thanks a lot info & advice..

I am pretty sure that the half doors are only an option for the Rubicon. www.warriorproducts.com has some half doors ....

The price for factory half doors is not going to cut it for me. I like the tube half doors more anyway. I dont see a price though.

well, your looking at $300 for the front pair and another $300 for rear doors. Not to bad.

You could certainly go with the canvas half-doors which are available and don't require paint. Easier to ship as well.

Half doors are a free option on any Wrangler 2 or 4 door just check the apropriate box(in 2007 they required ordering side airbags but not anymore)

I find it amazing that folks dont know this....Full doors look like ass with the top down ...if ya cant deal with soft upper windows on a Wrangler ya prob shouldnt buy one

and the 4 doors with half doors look weird with the windows out unless they are a Dark color cause of the B piller....but they look even weirder with the top down and full doors....Ok they look a bit weird anyway but it really accentuates the weirdness...course I always get the you can take the doors off....and ya can but Im not big on fording streams and getting soaked....been there done that in my CJ.....it gets old ...Gary
