door help

Im new to the whole wrangler thing and well its going to be 50-60 this weekend and i want to take my doors off. i took the 2 bolts and each side and tried to get doors and and basically was shaking the jeep. I even took a dead blow hammer to do it. im doing something wrong to get them off. I think they might never been off before and its 100,000 on an 05 unlmited. I was thinking all wrangler doors can come off but maybe im wrong. If there is something i need to do to get them off id like to know. i sprayed wd-40 on the pins.

Work them back and forth while applying up pressure... They'll eventually give. The first time is always the hardest.

patience...... swing the door back and forth and lift, it is a common problem for the ones that haven't been apart before, i have heard of a block of wood and jack being used but never had to try that with my TJ....GOOD LUCK!!

Once you take off the nuts, there is NOTHING to hold down the door. Hit with abundance.
