no doors is ok - no mirrors is not, so if your mirrors are on your doors, get relocation brackets

Just don't wander into Pennsylvania!

In PA, Jeep CJs MAY go doorless because their doors don't have latches built onto the body and threaded fasteners for hinge pins (hence they are viewed as add-ons).

Wranglers (YJs and TJs) are viewed as having integral doors, so removing them is illegal (as would be removing ANY door).

That came from a PA Trooper. I cannot verify.

I can tell you I ran doorless for years in NJ w/ my CJ with no interference.

A few weeks ago a JeepsUnlimited post by a fellow in PA related to being pulled over on the Pensy Turnpike and hassled because he didn't have his doors on.

The trooper explained the difference in intepretation with regard to "certified and required" equipment between early CJs (on which doors were optional equipment) and Wranglers, which in the USA all come with doors.

NO Wrangler was safety tested by the NHTSA without doors (and ALL Wranglers are sold w/ half or full doors), so operating one without doors violates Federal laws, and PA chooses to use Federal guidlines with regard to vehicle equipment.

The fact that Wranglers can be bought in other markets w/o doors or tops doesn't mean that operating one here in the US is legal that way.

Probably most jurisdictions wouldn't make such a distinction, or ticket such violations, but evidently PA does. In fact, wider flares (to cover wider tires) are also unlawful in PA. Go figure.
