Wow, interesting thread for a neighboring state of mine. If I remember correctly, PA is also a NO HELMET LAW STATE...Crazy how you can ride a motorcycle without a helmet, but you can't drive your Jeep without your doors...I thought NJ was bad...Lol!!!

A lot depends on the cop. I talked to a judge about it and they said it is illegal cuz the doors are needed for inspection so they are needed on the road

Ive been Military Police for 7 years and we follow state general statute and state code. As far as I know you just need to have your mirrors on. The severity may very from state to state so I am not 100% telling you it is fine to do but with mirrors you should be just fine. Just dont go boozing with the doors off because you are more likely to get pulled over. Ive known some other state cops to pull people over for not having covers on their daylighters mounted above the windshield... Complete garbage in my opinion and that is why gentlemen i will be out of law enforcement in the upcoming future!

I have several cops stop in to buy parts off of me and they say as long as you have the side mirrors on while driving they won't bother you. I been going doorless for years and have had no trouble at all. Just try to drive safe and stay off the radar and they won't bother you.

I was stopped by a local in Carlisle that said if it came from the factory with doors on then the doors had to be on. That was in JK I haven't tried yet in the TJ. I will test the waters when warmer weather gets here.

Isn't it more or less about keeping your mirrors on? At least that's what I've been told, and I've been thinking about getting my mirrors transferred from my doors to the actual jeep frame. The doors have to be off in the summer.

Well, I just had my doors off for almost a week. I passed many police officers and not one stopped me. I got a lot of smiles, though!

Ive never had any problems in delaware county. I always drive with no tops or doors past cops around town and on 95 and no one says anything. I use both mirrors just to be safe. I also know a cop around town that owns a jeep and drive without doors as well

Passed plenty of cops with no doors and even a leg out the door. Never had an issue.

No requirement to have doors in PA Inspectipn Manual/ Motor Vehicle Code. Must have mirrors. Older begs can get away with just center rear view and driver side mirror. Newer ( not sure what year) need both sides.
