My Smittybilt door bags finally came in so a friend and I pulled the factory doors and added the tubulars. My recs: 1. Shoot the factory hinges and electrical connectors with WD-40 the day before- they pop right off. 2. Leave the windows down-easier to handle and protected. 3. Do not fully tighten Element latch assembly or mirrors on doors until mounted-mine needed adjustment. 4. Mount limiting straps immediately- I didn't and it cost me a ding in the hood filler panel- luckily popped right out. 5. Tape the factory latch pins with duct tape to reduce rattling-mine still rattle but not incessantly.
They really change the feel of the Jeep- now its a true beach cruiser- doubt if I will ever change back- luckily I'm in Key West!
