Any jeepers that live in apartments have any ideas for storing a top and/doors? My limited space keeps me from taking mine off

What floor are you on and do you have a balcony/patio?

I plan on storing my hard top at my folks place, they have a nice big back yard away from greedy eyes lol Will be propping it up on wooden saw horses to avoid ruining the rubber seal at the bottom. Also just a tip: when you do store it away I've been told to use baby oil(water based) on the seal prior to storage which will help keep the rubber intact better for when you decide to put it back on the jeep. Also wrapping it up with plastic sheets and placing a few moth balls inside to avoid having it being a new home to all the fury/buggy critters that frequent the area.

3rd floor. I also have a patio with restrictions as far as items allowed there. I might have to rent out a storage.

I will definitely take good care of it when I finally do store it. Those are some good tips.

Apartment living isn't the easiest when storing gear, I know I live in one too. NP on the tips, share the knowledge as I always say!!

2007 jku here and I lived in an apartment for 2 summers on the third floor while owning my jeep.

I had a wall in the bedroom that didn't have anything in the way so when I would take the doors off I would carry all 4 up the steps one at a time and lean them carefully up against the wall.

Thankfully mine only came with the soft top and I didn't have to find a place to store it though if I had needed I do have a storage unit 20 minutes away with another vehicle stored.

Long term solution for me was to buy a house with a garage. I've put hooks up in my garage to hang all of my doors from each time I take them off and it makes it SOOO much easier.
