Really simple question.

I have no manual for my 95. How do you remove the driver side door? I was pulling the door up and everything, but it wouldn't budge. should I just lift harder? Also, there is no cap on the bottom of the top hinge like there should be. Any ideas?

as long as you've removed the nut holding the door on, keep pullin up, rock the door open and closed while pulling. i'd say try using pb blaster, and let it soak in a little. they're killer to remove if no one has for a long time.

once you get it off, clean off the rust with any abrasive that will do it, and lube it, anti seize, wd40, anything like that and it will fall off everytime you try later.

i dont even put the nut back on the hinge when i put the door back on. it is just a pain. but like dave said spray some lube on it and rock it back and forth. it might take a little elbow grease the first time.

ya no nut here either, wait a minute.

i don't think anyone puts it back, unless you're in an area where doors get stolen. i have met someone that got their doors stolen. how bad would that suck, walk out to your jeep and the doors are gone. "i know i left them on, right?"

how exactly does one steal a set of doors w/o looking suspicious. i guess if you walk down the road with them going vroom, vrrroom, beep, beeeeep, then people will chalk it up to insanity.

But do you roll the window up if it starts to rain. After all it is a jeep.

As long as you have the top you may as well take the windshield.

I have a '95 and I don't think the doors had ever been off when I got it. After I took the nuts off, I used a 2x4 wrapped in a towel on top of my floor jack to pop the doors off. I put a dab of white lithium grease in the hinge holes and have had no problems since.

Ya, your right. Besides it would look a lot cooler cruising down the street with just a windshield, hardtop, and doors.
