Thoughts on body armor trail doors?

Just wondering what everyone's thoughts are on the body armor trail doors. Do the rattle a lot. Or not shut right?

I have had them for over a year and love the look! They close fine however you will need to tinker a little with the closing/locking mechanism to fit it just right. Mine do not rattle.

I just got some recently. I love the look but they will take some adjusting to make them fit and they potentially will still rattle. They are good to work with also, I had to send one back and they got another out to me without too much hassle.

There is review and a customer photo on our page for the Body Armor Trail Doors. I've heard reviews that some people have fitment issues but that they can adjust the doors to fit. Others have them fit well out of the box. Let me know if you have any questions or if you'd like me to send you a quote!

I have them and like them. The one on the passenger's side fits perfect, no rattles or paint rub. My driver's side had a slight rattle, and after adjusting it numerous times, it stopped, but started to rub the paint. I ended up putting the soft side of some velcro strip on it, to keep it from rubbing. Seems to work fine now, and you can't even see the velcro when closed.

I have them and I love em

Same reports as everyone else, 3 of them fit perfect, 1 of them rubs the paint

Some of them rattle, but I can stop it for a few weeks with some duct tape around the metal latch that attaches to the jeep

If anyone else has better ideas, let me know

The only thing I don't like about that. I don't want to have to adjust the the door latch thing every time I take more doors off. I live in Indiana and it's not always sunny. So I would have to move it every time I switch doors.

My front doors did not fit correctly, the tube hit the inside door well preventing the doors to latch correctly. I had to drill out the mounting holes for the latch plate to allow the doors room to close and double latch preventing any rattle. Now they fit the way they should have out of the box.

I contacted Body Armor about this issue, and they said to just adjust the jeeps door keeper and hinges. (yeah right)

On a positive note, the back doors fit perfectly.

I ran these doors for a summer and a 1/2 and then they were stolen in the beach parking lot. FU thieves.

I now have new set waiting for the spring and fully expect to have to modify this set also.

I just received my BA tube doors and was wondering if anyone knows if there are locking nuts/bolts that would secure the doors from theft. I noticed that my doors have threads on the bottom of the pins but the pin/thread is thicker than the stock doors which means the stock nut does not fit.

I just got mine a week or so ago, and they came with nuts & washers for the door pins. Did you have any leftover hardware in the box? At any rate, they were just simple nuts & washers. You might be best just to haul one into your local hardware store and see what they can hook you up with.

As a side note, I just wanted to comment on my Gen II's. I love 'em! Someday, I may fiddle with the foam to make the netting a little tighter, or do something different altogether for the insert. The "fit" is good, minimal rattles, and it doesn't bother me much when I do hear them. The latches are solid, and I'm satisfied with that.

No nuts and washers....if one could find a star nut that would fit which would require the theives to have a star or torx wrench in there pocket that might be the ticket.
Do you think a big box hardware store might carry something like that?

I posted this in another BA door thread and I'll repeat it here. At the Four Wheel Parts Event in Ontario we spoke to the Body Armor rep about this issue. The problems described above involve the Gen 1 doors. The Gen 2 doors are about 1/2" short in length and have a bolt-on hinge pin system, allowing adjustment of the hang at the hinge, thus allowing for adjustment and eliminating the rub on the frame near the striker
