door pin stripped

I was taking my doors off this morning and the bottom nut on the driver side will not come off the threads are stripped. any suggestions on how to get it off. If a new pin is not to much should i just cut it and replace it? I just took the hinge off so i could get my door off but i dont want to have to do that every time i take them off.

Did you use any thing to break it loose like PB Blaster ? I know mine were a pain the first time and that helped

Might not be the best solution but, just twist it off. I don't put them on anyway. Be sure to put a little paint on it when you get the door off to prevent rust. I might be a redneck but that's my fix.

I don't have a nut on the bottom of my pins when the doors are on easiest way to go.

Haha I was thinking about grinding them down so u can't see threads .. I don't plan on putting the nuts back on any way .. And after taking them off those painted nuts will never look the same anyway

Just twist it off and leave them off. I bought my Jeep with them off and I don't really see a need to have them on.

My bolts on passenger door snapped right off. My guess is the doors have never been off before I owned it. Oh well at least I don't have to worry about unbolting them.

Busted mine off too. Been fine now for about a year, If it were me, I wouldn't go through the trouble of trying to find replacement parts, they don't really seem that necessary.

I agree I'm not gonna bother with new bolts just fine the way it is. Just less work when I want the doors off.

one of mine busted off so I took a cut off tool and cut all the pins off just above the threads so they dont stick out the bottom of the hinge. Looks a lot cleaner.
