Which tube doors look best on my jeep?

I want tube doors for the summer and can not decide which looks best. I do want some coverage and really like the Body Armor or Warrior with the mesh inserts. I currently have safari straps on my jeep and was wondering if it would look too 'strapped up' with the Body Armor or Warrior? I just wanted some opinions, or suggestions. Thanks!!

I like the body armor ones better from those two. Ultimately, do like to have a set of bestop doors with painted skins.

Consider the OR-FAB doors they break up the geometric monotony of a parallel grid everywhere. Strap meshes are very cool but overdone they look like a cage or chicken coup.

The OR-Fab look cool, I was afraid with the Safari Straps I would have too much going on and I want to keep them on because my dogs sometimes ride in the back. Do you know if they rattle or any fitting issue with them?

On my TJ the top adjusts. And there is a rubber boot that keeps it from rattling...

The single bolt compresses the top hinge so you can adj the door square...

Hope this all helps...

I run the body armor doors and I love them. My wife doesn't like riding with no doors but loves the trail doors. I like the look you get with them as well.

You could check out the Aries doors, I've been looking at them and one feature I think they nailed it on was the closure and rubber stopper that I think Bestop also has on their element doors to stop the rattle and provide a nice "thunk" to the door closing.

Aries tube doors are also aluminum so lighter weight and actually cheaper then some of the other options.

Nope I don't think it will be overkill. I think they will complement each other nicely.

Easy install, Made in the USA. You have to have a sharp drill bit to install a little rubber spacer.
