Billet Mechanical Door Stops

Just installed Billet Mechanical Door Stops (BMDS) from Quadratec on my LJ. My very first mod! They retailed for $50.00 and I bought the Billet Mechanical Door Stop Accessory Kit for an additional $10.00.

Install

The install was easy even for someone who isn't mechanically inclined (i.e., me ). After removing the strap and door bracket, the BDMS bolted right into place. The bracket screws are almost obstructed by the door panel -- almost! It takes a bit of wiggling to get them in and out, but that was only a minor pain in the ass. Don't do anything crazy like removing the door panel! They fit -- trust me.

Next I unbolted the strap post from the body tub (two bolts) added a retainer spring and bolted it right back on. Lastly, I partly closed the door, pushed back the retainer spring and slid the billet cap over the top of the strap post. Done! BTW, you can disconnect in seconds, just like a strap.

If you get the Accessory Kit, it includes two sets of bushings to limit door travel. The largest bushings caused the door to stop way too short IMO. The smaller set is just right. I recommend installing these on the BMDS as the very first step.

Review

The only complaints I had was that the manufacturer mislabled the BMDS "left" and "right" incorrectly. Also, I shouldn't have had to pay $10 for the Accessory Kit. It contains about .25 in parts that should be included with the BMDS IMO.

The look and quality of the part is high. My doors don't fly open when I get in and out of my jeep anymore. The BMDS use friction to slow things down. Parking garage inclines aren't a problem either. Resting your door on the car next to you while loading your jeep is not cool. Overall, I'm very satisfied with my purchase.

I too have these. I did not get the accessory kit. Overall, I would buy them again.

They are something different and a fun conversation piece when people see them.

Just a week ago, I bought the replacement for my old jeep doors. It's of good quality for a reasonable price. You should have had a reliable dealer for you car parts to lessen your headaches and expenses...
