Right now, I just lean them up against the wall, setting on the floor. I plan on getting these though.

I used those samehome depot brackets as Roxbury29 But, I mounted them to a 2X8 that I then mounted to the wall.. Doing it that way gave more rigididy IMO. and considering hardwear, brackets and 2X8 all togother was under $30.00 it was money well spent.

Any sturdy storage hook will work. I believe the doors are 50-60 lbs each.

If you have the wall space, hanging each door seperately keeps them from rubbing on each other.

Nice might want to hang a 1 inch piece of foam between them, you never know what could scratch the paint

My son calls it the "Jeep Dock". That pic was right after I finished it, I have added flood lights for late night modding, small compressor in the ceiling beside the kargo cage and a retractable power cord. In hind site, it should have been bigger, with hardtop, doors, kargo cage, roof top storage and misc. stuff...its really too small! This Jeep thing is costing me a fortune.

Been planning on doing this for a while. Have had all the supplies for over a year and just haven't made the space in my building for it yet.

I have sen some references to the weight of the door resting on the window frame being a bad thing. Anyone care to comment on that? Still trying to figure out what my setup is going to be...though I guess I could just throw them in my finished basement as there are like 6 storage rooms down there

As long as your was was plumb, it shouldn't swing out. You could always rig up a lock of some sort to keep it from swinging.

I don't really see where that would be an issue, but this is the first season I've used this set up so idunno.

Nice sunny day here in KS so I took the doors & top off. Didn't want the doors leaning against the wall again for another summer and I've heard that hanging them up on hooks isn't good for the window frame so here's my solution.

Paid $5 for 2' of 3/8" black iron pipe from Ace and $1.29 for these vinyl coated straps. Had screws & washers from other projects along with 2x4s.









Takes some tinkering to figure out how to notch the 2x4s so the doors don't rub, you can kinda see what I did. Given more time and workbench space, I'd spend more time making them pretty, but this is the best I could do in a couple hours today including the shopping trip. Spent 3 hours getting the winch hooked up to the rafters on a shed about 16' off the floor, but I'm free again, or at least until it starts raining and I gotta put the doors & soft top back on. Cheers!

Are your doors weight being held just by the screws?? or did I miss something?

Got a 4" deck screw into a pre-drilled 2x4 holding the weight on the top hinge, with a 1.5" drywall screw into the wide face of the bottom 2x4 to keep the door level, I don't believe this one holds as much weight as the top hinge.

I pulled down on the doors fairly hard, they're not budging, but to be certain didn't miss anything I've got a loose strap through the windows to test & make sure it'll all hold fine overnight which it did. These are the heavier front doors, but I'll build the rear door frame just the same.

Given time, equipment & materials, I'd prefer to weld the whole thing, but this works good for the 2 hours or so it took to make the first one.

I've got other projects taking more priority for now.
