If you desperately need mirrors and don't want doors, a buddy of mine steals his dad's motorcycle mirrors and just places them in the holes where the doors fit in. I rock no doors...have sat at red lights next to cops and have had no problems. As long as you have your rearview mirror and the cop isn't some cowboy I don't see why you shouldn't be fine without doors

I don't think the police actually know all of the rules. The wranglers are exempt from the federal sideimpact laws. I got a ticket for using the middle lane as a merge lane, over $140 ticket, so I looked it up, took it to court and won. The cop was pssed, but it was right there in the driver's handbook so....

Still trying to research further now about the doors. Seems like it's legal, so long as you have mirrors, but it may be another court issue if the police don't have all the facts. I'll keep on reading!

The thing is that they are required for inspection so they say if they are needed for inspection that they need to be on while driving on the road also. I checked with the police, and inspection station, and even talked to the jeep dealer and they all said that its illegal to drive without them.

Hey Red, that's what I could find too. Nothing in the vehicle code book at all regarding doors, but there is that from the inspection codes. So, it's still a gray area as far as ticketing is concerned. I'm guessing that it's a chance we can take because there is nothing actually written in stone about it. When my doors come off, I'm hoping for nice officers in this area.

Yea. I fought a ticket I got and I questioned the judge while I was there and he said its illegal. He had to call around and ask because someone fought a ticket for not having doors and he wasnt sure but he said its illegal and the person lost. That's how he said he knew

I'm not sure if I replied to this thread as yet. Here's my take, and I'm sitting in a black and white as I type this, take it how you will. This is a particular tickle that rookies get when they get the inspection manual course. I have had my Jeep inspected without the doors. IF they are present, they must latch and open from the inside. My argument with the rookies is this: can I take my top off? Yes, it's designed to do that, is their answer. Well then, my doors are ALSO designed to do come off. Sure you can take a blow torch to your Chevy and drop your doors, but then we know you're pushing it.

It's gonna depend on the cop (and the size of the stick in his arse) when it comes to this. Some judges don't like these kind of tickets because they aren't familiar with inspection, and just push them through. This is a word of mouth thing with cops usually, but fear not, I am educating these goofballs one badge at a time

In PA, you don't need mirrors on the outside of the vehicle. Period. Just the rear view mirror on the windshield is fine.

A mirror may not be cracked, broken or discolored.

(c) Obstructions. On a vehicle specified under this subchapter, a rearview mirror shall be free from obstructions as described in § 175.80.

(1) A vehicle specified under this subchapter having a sign, load or material which obstructs, obscures or impairs the driver’s clear view of the highway or an intersecting highway shall have two outside rearview mirrors, one on the driver’s side and one on the passenger’s side, each with a minimum reflective surface of 19.5 square inches.

(2) Rear window louvers are permitted only if the vehicle has at least two outside rearview mirrors, one on the driver’s side and one on the passenger’s side, each with minimum reflective surfaces of 19.5 square inches.

(3) Rearview mirrors, each with a minimum reflective surface of 19.5 square inches, shall be installed on both sides of a vehicle for which a certificate of exemption for a sun screening device or other material has been issued. A vehicle for which a certificate of exemption has been issued for medical reasons may be equipped with only a left outside rearview mirror, unless the vehicle was originally equipped with an outside rearview mirror on both sides of the vehicle.

(4) No object or material may be hung from the rearview mirror and no object or material may be hung, placed or attached in a position so as to materially obstruct, obscure or impair the driver’s vision through the windshield or constitute a safety hazard.

(b) OTHER VIOLATIONS.-It is unlawful for any person to do any of the following:

(1) Willfully or intentionally remove (other than for purposes of repair and replacement) or render inoperative, in whole or in part, any item of vehicle equipment which was required to be installed at the time of manufacture or thereafter upon any vehicle, by any law, rule, regulation or requirement of any officer or agency of the United States or of the Commonwealth, if it is intended that the vehicle be operated upon the highways of this Commonwealth unless the removal or alteration is specifically permitted by this title or by regulations promulgated by the department.

I spoke with my friend who is a state trooper. basicly what this translates to is this, If the vehicle is manufactured to have removable doors,top ect... Than you are excluded from the above. Doors are technicaly an option for wranglers.

I saw earlier that a cop told a member if he cant take the doors of his cruiser than he can not remove the doors from his wrangler. This cop was wrong. A crown vic,dodge charger,ect that police use are federal crash test saftey rated with crash bars in the doors. wrangler from my understanding do not have any saftey devices inside the door. Also, If a door is bolted from the inside of a vehicle, it considered a modification to remove the door and by doing so you remove a mojor saftey feature and is some vehicles the actual structure from the vehicle,where as in a wrangler, the vehicle is designed to have removable doors, so was in part designed to have added structure other places so that the doors do not have any structural signifigance to the vehicle.

As far as PA state inspection goes, and yes i do have my PA state inspection license, rule of thumb is if the vehicle came with it it must have it.
Can you get an inspection without your top on? Yes. A wrangler is actually technicaly considered as a convertable. If a 06 Mustang GT came in with its top down for inspection you could pass it.
Can you get an inspection without your doors? This is technicaly a "grey" area in the book. Again rule of thumb from above. If you know the mechanic you could most likely get away with it. If it were me, If i had to do an inspection on a wrangler that came in topless and doorless, I would pass it due to the fact i know that the doors and tops are considered a factory applied option.
What about if i dont have my mirrors? No. Pa state inspection laws require a working rearview mirror and the driver side mirror. A passenger mirror is not required but if it is there, it must work properly and be free of cracks.

I am friends with many poloice offers and higher ups. I am a mechanic as stated above and i work for a former Chrysler Jeep dodge dealer. As far as i am aware all my information is correct. Feel free to correct me if i am wrong but do not "bash me" as i am only trying to help here and excuse my spelling. Its early and im at work lol. I do own the inspection manual and the PA Crimes Code and equipment manuals. If anyone has question feel free to PM me and i woil help you the best i can.

I understand what you are sayin but I was told if they are needed for inspection you gotta keep them on at all times. And all the inspection stations say that they are needed that I talk to cuz of it being a gray line

Yeah most places will tell you you have to have them due to them being a grey area. If you know someone they can overlook it and not get in trouble for it, but like i said it falls under the If it came with them put them back on for inspection. There are a million and one things that fall in the grey are for inspections. But as far as driving without them, most cops wont say anything unless a) new cop trying to make a name for himself which i see everyday. B) you are being stupid and the cop then looks for reasons to extend the length of the ticket. Ive seen both happen and have had both happen to me.
To the member who is a COP, good work and thank you for keeping us all safe. but ive seen to many crooked cops so to me there is a big difference between a cop and a pig. a cop does his job and a pig has the "I have a do whatever i want and get away with it badge" and i hate that. My father was a state constable before he passed away so i was raised to have the upmost respect for law enforcement but there are alot of cops who are just D!CKS

This is all a bunch of S*@T. The doors are removeable. Take them off if you want or don't. Are any of you out there going to not take your doors off because you are afraid of getting ticketed? If you get stopped and get a ticket, fight it. This is my second Wrangler and I have ridden with the doors off most if not all of every summer I have had one and never even been looked at funny by a cop.

The cops around here are pricks. And a few will ticket you. And fighting it will do no good cuz the local district magistrate even told me its illegal to ride on the road with your doors off

My 2cents...

I've had my TJ in PA for a year now not as my DD. Over the summer it stays in the garage overnight with the doors and top off. Rarely do I leave the doors on unless for some reason I take it to work overnight. I don't have mirror relocation brackets or anything special. Driving it all over the place I have never been pulled over for not having doors or mirrors. (knock on wood) That being said I never drive like an idiot or crazy. I think if you are driving reasonably you will rarely have an issue. If you get that one officer who's out to pull someone over just be respectful and explain the situation. A lot of my friends are law enforcement and most of them will tell you unless you're being a complete moron and you're respectful when they pull you over you will not have any issues, and most likely not even a ticket. Also on a side note I know my tires stick out at least 1.5'' past my flares and wasn't an issue during inspection.

So it seems like PA is cool with no doors, depending on local PDs, but what about NJ? I go back there pretty often and want to take the doors off this summer.

Well my tires were out an 1" and I got a ticket for that and I wasn't being a moron. I was sitting at a light and the cop went past slow and turned around then followed me and pulled me over. And further more on the way to the jeep show last year atleast five people got a ticket just for not having doors on. You don't have to be doing anything stupid its more on the fact of how well the cop knows the laws. Cuz from what I was told by the judge in pa you have to have your doors on and tires can't stick out.

I have a friend who is a Sergeant in the Virginia State Police. I asked him this question on facebook yesterday:
Hey Chris.

Hi Chris! What is your opinion on Jeep wranglers (and CJ's) being driven without doors? From my understanding it is a removable part of the vehicle, like the soft top. Would you ticket someone who is driving their Jeep safely and with outside rear-view mirrors attached but no doors?

no i wouldn't ticket anyone doing that; however, keep i mind that by doing that you may significantly reduce your saftey in the event of a side impact

Now, I know he is on the VaSP, I didn't go to high school with any PA police.
