Been searching online and wanted those Jeepegz but not interested in paying 100+ to get em here so heres what i came up with.

Went to the local Motorcycle shop and picked up these little guys

$30 bucks after military discount ha "MURICA

Went over to Ace, cause they're the helpful hardware place to get the other parts i needed.
3/8 lock washers
3/8 washers (Both in grade 8)
3/8 Rubber washer
1 1/4 X 3/8 (Fine Thread) Grade 5 Bolt

Funny they had grade 8 washers but no grade 8 bolts in fine thread. Oh well its not structural or anything so no big deal.

And the tools i used
Socket wrench
Sockets
40 torx
3/8 drill bit

Removed the bottom Torx bolt (40 Torx) Go slow and dont strip the threads. That would be a PITA to remove. then drilled it out with a 3/8 bit.

this is how i assembled. threw away the old mounting hardware for the motorcycle since i had all the other shiz. And went bolt->lock washer->washer->pass through to the outside->rubber Washer->Ballin Jeep Peg

Tightened everything down and this is the end result. Not bad for ~$32 bucks
Buttoned UP

Down

Let me know what ya think or if you have an questions. Thanks
'MURICA
That's awesome, may copy you so i can stop having to take mine on and off. Hopefully a motorcycle place near me has something similar in black, don't have any other chrome on my ride

Made my own door rack for when the full doors come off. Probably 15$ in materials (2 utility hangars, pipe insulation, and 2 2x4 boards for support) and 30 minutes putting them up. Each hangar said it supports 50 pounds which seems like a small weight but my doors stay on them with no problem.

Sweet! Do they hang or sit on top? Been thinking about something similar for my window inserts...

↑ X2. It's not a good idea to hang the doors by their window frame they tend to break where the metal frame connects to the door skin

Does that foot peg lock in the up position?

Also if you don't like chrome, just spray it with some rustoleum bedliner. Dull black finish but it holds up well. Did my wheels and rear bumper with it a few months ago, holds up great.

Yeah the foot pegs stay in the up position. I'm gonna take em off and sand em down then hit it with some bedliner so they match. I'll post pictures when I'm done.

No hasn't happened to me, I have half doors... but the doors are known to crack where the window frame meets the door skin, so I wouldn't chance it. A friend of mine has cracks on her doors and they have never been taken off let alone hung by the frame.

Fender Flares

I have the bushwacker pocket style fender flares but they are already pre-painted a sort of metallic silver. Could I just plasti-dip right over that?

The PO of my full doors hung them by the window frame and they are cracked on both sides. I will add a pic tonight, but NO you NEVER want to hang your doors by the window frame for any length of time!

You can plastidip anything. It's basically a sprayable rubber like coating. If you don't like the look it peels off. This is easier to peel if you get a few coats on it to make it a bit thicker so you can get your fingernails under it.

that's the way mine are actually most of the weight is on the bottom hooks that sit on top of the concrete ledge all padded and the concrete covered to be safe from scratches.

Jk doors might be different... they are more of a whole door skin/frame (like most other car/truck doors) TJ doors were different the window frame was almost like a separate piece welded to the door skin

My door storage is by far the cheapest, mine sit on the floor, leaned up against the wall.

Because of the weight. The window frame is not designed to hold that weight. If you hang your doors solely by the window frame, they WILL eventually crack.

Ok, I'm back...this is only an issue with TJs (maybe older) because the doors are two pieces but the JKs are one piece (hence my skepticism). Sooooo, no problem hanging jk doors.
