So I just got a 2013 gecko for my 17th birthday and I'm looking forward to taking the doors off in the summer, but I need ideas for mirrors, I'd like to still have both rear view mirrors and I've seen some that will go in the door hinges but I can't find any that are reasonably priced. I've seen people take blind spot mirrors and put them on the air vents and that just looks like crap. Any help?

As a girl, I need to make sure I have hot shoes with doors off! Running out in sweats won't do!

Yep, I start going through a mental checklist, those look like ACE sliders, that's an AEV bumper, stuff like that...

You just clean your Jeep to a spotless shine and then ruin it 2 seconds later when you see a puddle of mud waiting for you on the side of the road.....

When you have super long legs and have to cram yourself against the steering wheel so you can fit passengers behind you...

When all you can think about is the day you can get those new wheels with that new lift with new tires!

My problem is switching DD vehicles from the car with automatic windows, to the jeep that I manually roll down. I don't know how many times I've tried to "roll" down windows in the Honda!

I drive the jeep on Monday and Friday, and the Honda tues-thurs. gives me something to look forward to. The jeep. Not the car!

stalling out my wife's car at a busy intersection after forgetting that other stick shift vehicles actually require 1st gear usage on flat ground.

Check out this website... These seem to be great from everything I have read... I don't have the money yet to order a set or I would have them also. http://defiantsystems.storenvy.com/

Or look them up on here under defiant systems. Other options seem to have an annoying vibrating issue when you get up to speed.

Good luck.

Had that happen a few days ago. I need to create a runoff to the drain holes in my floorboards because I had taken in about a foot of water.

Got pulled over a couple of nights ago in my friends jeep... He had his top on because he has nowhere to put his hard top (witch sucks for him) but he had his doors off. Well when the officer got to the vehicle he asked where the doors were. My friend said at my house. The officer then decided to ask three sixteen year old boys wether or not it was legal to drive with doors off! Yes that's right the officer didn't know that it's legal to take the doors off of a jeep!!!! He also asked if the jeep has a roll bar and made my friend show him where the roll bar was. This officer clearly has lived a sad jeep less life.
