JK Upper Half Door Sliders...

Rampage Products is gauging interest of upper half door window sliders for Factory lower half doors. Vote and let us know!

Jeep has been tapering back the amount of half doors they produce. Since the JK came out, they have been an option, not standard like they were on the TJ models. Every year, they get more difficult to get. We've heard (but haven't confirmed) that the half doors aren't available at all for 2012s. Anyone have a 2012 with factory half doors?

Yep, half doors remain available in 2012.

Also, I can tell you for a fact that the "slider windows" question with regard to pre-2012s has been asked several times on this forum over at least the past year or so, and we've always had to disappoint the poster by letting him/her know that no aftermarket company makes them.

Although half doors are a bit of a niche for the JK, sliders are wanted and would sell. Whether it'd be enough from a design/production standpoint, I can't say. But I do know folks have come here specifically to ask about them.

I cannot understand why sliders are not standard from the factory. Seem like every half door owner wants them. Jeep would probably sell a lot more.

I would love them if you can match the factory look and quality, even if that means working with Jeep and them costing (a reasonable amount) more than a comparable aftermarket product. The JK uppers are so much better than previous generations and I would want the same quality, especially in how the uppers seal to the surrounds.

2012 half doors are available, but only with certain models/options. Please, please, please make the half door sliders. I would bet that more people would start getting the half doors if you made them!

If I knew they would be available I would probably order half doors on my 2012.

Cheers

You're saying no slider windows for JKs? We have one JK, but it has full doors. If we get a second, it will be half doors, and I will definitely want slider windows. I have them on my YJ and love them.

The only reason I don't have half doors on my '11 is because there are no sliders availabe. I'm active duty Navy and unzipping my window every morning when I come through the gate at work would be a pain. If sliders were made I'd have half doors before any other mod on my list.

Army here, and 100% ID check at the gate. I love my sliders on my YJ. I'd be looking for sliders real quick if I didn't already have them.

Okay Rampage, you've teased us enough. You ask us for polls, show the sliders in your catalogue only to tell us you don't make them yet and have them listed only to generate interest (isn't a catalogue supposed to list things you are actually selling?).
The JK Wrangler series is coming up on 5-years old. Jeeps like my '07 with half doors are ready for new uppers and I'd like to replace them with sliders. I am sure there are more people than the few that took the poll who would like the windows, and more to come as the JK model ages.

You make 'em, I'll but 'em.

Note to fellow Jeepers; the following attachment is from Rampage only to taunt us.

Yes, I will buy them. I just ordered a 2012 JKU with Full doors and also ordered the half doors as an accessory. Haven't ordered the door Uppers yet. If the upper door sliders are available by spring, I would definitely buy them.

the sliders are not available now, and from the way it look will not be made ever. Rampage dos not care about us at all and thinks our money is not good enough for them. how much could it really cost to get a plastic mold made and some glass cut to size? I mean they have all the stuff to make them, they just need to make a new die for the jk. this hole thing has really put a bad taste in my mouth and I am never got to buy anything from Rampage until they start to make these.

Hey all, as you all know, these still aren't being produced. The problem is, as I am writing this, there have only been 37 votes. There's a thread on this in another forum as well and I don't believe it has cracked triple digits. We understand that there are some that will buy them but we are not able to just make a few of these things, we have full production runs to deal with and you'd be surprised at how much R&D, testing, prototyping,and production runs cost. We want to build them, just need more confidence that more than a hundred will sell.

To help make this happen, get the word out there! Get people to vote, get people to send us emails. The more I can give the marketing team, the better!

Believe me, we want to make these and I do see them happening in the future, as the JKs get older, less expensive, more and more being produced everyday and so on, it will happen.

What is going to make it happen sooner than later is all you of you folks that have been unfortunately stringing along until we get there. I am asking for your help, spread the word on these, get more people to vote, send us emails asking for them. The more ammo I have to give the marketing guys, the better chance we have of moving these up in the list of to dos.

Vote and email us at info@rampageproducts.net and put "JK Top Sliders" in the subject line.
