Hinge Maintenance?

Hello All- I have enjoyed reading the posts on this forum. Alot of good information being shared. I am new to Jeep. I will be picking up my Jeep 2012 Shara Unlimited tomorrow. Can't wait!! I wanted to know if thier is any maintenance schedule for the exterior hinges on the Jeep. They seem to be exposed to the elements , can anyone provide details or suggestions to keep them working well?

Thank you much.

They're pretty tough, though I've heard they sometimes corrode. Some folks put a dab of lithium grease in each one to keep it easy to remove the doors.

Mine were in fine condition on my 2010 when I yanked them off; sanded, primed, and bedlined them; and then reattached using the factory bolts, a silicon automotive sealant, and thread locker. Look good.
