Tj half door storage?

Does anyone have any ideas for cheap and easy garage storage? Other then sitting on garage floor and leaning against the wall.

Get some hinges from the hardware store with the same size hole or just a tad bigger than the stock hinges. Or see if you can get hinges from a bone yard off a Jeep. Screw/bolt them to a nice sturdy stud and hang them the same way they go on your Jeep. I haven't done it yet but that's what I plan to do with mine. For now, I'm risking it putting them in the shed with lawn equipment.

I put mine in Bestop door storage jackets. They are padded and protect the doors well.

They are for full doors, but I put my 1/2 doors and soft uppers in them during the winter.


Then, I lean them against a wall on my garage floor!

These are all better than mine... mine sit outside wrapped in a tarp against my house next to where she parks. Works quite well

That's sounds like a great idea, you could even hang em high on the rafters of the garage.

I did something very similar but used 1 inch rubber coated straps from Lowes. They are in the specialty hardware section in one of he drawers. Worked very good and offer protection.

Can you post a pic? I think I got your idea, and that would prolly be the most practical approach.

I just used some landscape nails in the wall studs in the garage. Hung doors by straps

I bolted them to make sure they wouldn't pull out. One the doors were on the straps I used a zip tie on each door just in case. These are very strong and are made to hold a lot more weight

So I went to Lowes for some stuff around the house today and was thinking of this thread again as I drove there. I couldn't find any hinges that would work for my door storage idea so I got some of these instead...


I tried mounting these two different ways; both up on the ceiling and along one vertical stud. I think I like the ceiling better but need to move some stuff so I can fit them with the uppers still attached.

nice, no reason that wouldn't work on full doors

Thanks for the feedback. I went the lowes rubber coated brackets and it worked great. It was so easy and cheap.

No problem at all!!! I add a eye hook a couple inches from one of the bracket and use a zip tie around the hinge just to make sure it don't slip out...a bit of overkill but if a door ever slipped out that would be bad!

Yeah, considering its eight feet off the ground I'd prolly cry when I saw the mangled door on the ground.

I bought mine at Home Depot. Mounted them in less than 30 minutes. Mounted not hanging from the ceiling, but instead on the wall in the orientation they would normally be in if they were in the hinge pins on the Jeep. Works exactly as well as the $110 alternative. Thanks for the tip!

Just FWIW, I can see an advantage of mounting them on the wall versus the ceiling. With them mounted on the wall they could be mounted in front of something you regularly use, but would swing open (like a door) to access what's behind them.
