mulhollanddrive Half doors - easy to take off and looks much better. Also, you can throw the top part in the back for those nasty storms in the south.

Have half doors and soft uppers all the way!

Took the words out of my mouth...I hate the full doors on my plow jeep because of the cramped feeling at the elbows...and I really don't care for the hard top and I live in the snow belt. I miss the old soft top and half doors that used to be on it, but got sucked in to the "oh, you'll love the hard top and full doors in the snow"...what a load of shxx!! Soft top is warmer when the sun is out on a wintry day...tent effect, noticed that right off the bat.

cavediverjc When I first got my Jeep and called USAA (my insurance carrier), one of the questions that was asked by the lady on the phone was whether or not my Jeep had a hardtop and whether or not it had full doors. I never asked why (mine came with full doors and a hardtop), but it may have had something to do with how secure my Jeep was, or how secure I was in my Jeep. Don't know. Once I told her that the Jeep had full doors, she wanted to know if the windows were etched with serial numbers (they are). Maybe insurance carriers cut you a break if you have full doors? I couldn't tell you because I don't have anything to compare it to.

Jp90Talon Full oem doors then bestop 2-piece doors to keep in the back for rolling doorless just in case or to use on a trail so the full doors dont get killed.
08-23-2010 07:42 PM
inzgary All Jeeps seem to come with full doors unless you order them with half doors. I think soft top Jeeps should have halves and hard tops fulls. I'd rather have half doors since I have a soft top but I don't. I just leave the nuts off the hinge pins so I can just lift the full doors off whenever its nice out. I have soft doors too but they need work so I haven't been using them.

McGridDLe just made the conversion to half doors and love it! I have been looking for a good set since i got the jeep.. They won't be the best in the winter, but their much better for the majority of the year!

Frat36 Full doors during snowy hardtop season, 2-piece soft doors during raining soft top season, and no doors during sunny topless season.
08-23-2010 04:36 PM
rogertc1 Half doors rock,
08-23-2010 04:32 PM
Vaultzz I prefer no doors, and If I had a choice in having to have doors then they'd be full soft
08-23-2010 04:30 PM
RatherBNarizona half all the way!
but then again I am from somewhere where it doesn't snow and only occasionally rains

Unless you live in a climate with temperature extremes. Then doors are quite handy.....

ParaCAD Half doors...what i got...thinking of getting a set of full canvas doors...
08-23-2010 01:07 PM
Gate53 If I was ordering new I'd get the full doors and store them in the garage then pick up a set of 1/2 door to use most of the time.
08-23-2010 12:45 PM
jayc 1/2 doors. Just easier to take off and store than the full doors are, if it's rainning in the morning when you leave and then the sun comes out you can just throw them in the back no prob

I have half as well, and I love my sliding uppers from Bestop. Little pricey but came on the Jeep and work great!

Walkingstick No doors.
but if I had to choose, I would go with either full soft doors or half steel doors with soft uppers.
08-23-2010 11:35 AM
jskinn27 no doors
08-23-2010 10:31 AM
cavediverjc Full doors. For me it's either all on or all off. And full doors are simple to remove. The same 4 nuts hold my full doors that also hold the half doors. And they aren't heavy. Simple on and off.
08-23-2010 10:28 AM
toshpate I have had both and I like the full doors, hated the windows on the half doors, you cant "Crack" it like a real door when you just want a little air. and they were way more noisy to me then the full doors. my CJ had slider windows on the full doors which was kinda different
08-23-2010 10:16 AM
Blackbeard1718 I have both. Full Doors in the Winter, and Half Doors the other 3 Seasons! Best of both door worlds!

Cheers!

sonofabeach I have half doors and would rather have full hard doors.
For me it's either doors on or doors off so I rarely ride with just the top half off.

pakman55 My first jeep had full steel doors....now that its sold, im looking for one with half doors
08-23-2010 08:46 AM
530ktm My first Jeep had the half doors. I liked them for the arm position and how low they were with the windows out. I did not like the windows at all when they were in though. When I bought my new Jeep I wanted to get the full doors. It would be nice to have both sets for the different seasons but then you have to store one set. Being that case, I prefer my full doors.
08-23-2010 08:38 AM
1991 Wrangler YJ Renegade HALF DOORS for sure, as said above, you have sooo many more options. And half doors are sooo much easier to work with if you wanna take them off and store em... The other day, I was cruising the beach, and wanted to take my doors off, so I stopped, lifted em off, and suck them behind the back seat. Easy
08-23-2010 08:14 AM
GoldenSahara00 half doors with the soft uppers theres so many options, unzip windows, take the uppers off, takes doors and uppers off. plus it kinda keeps your jeep lookin half and half with the color/top when its all on. if you get what I mean.
08-23-2010 08:11 AM
JDsDream Bought mine with the full doors. I don't like the way they look. I now run element rails and will be adding the enclosures and soft uppers before winter. If all goes well, I'll be selling my full doors then.

InfernoGirl Half doors..... anything else is pretty much a deal breaker for me. More elbow room, nicer place to rest your arm. Doors off doesn't feel like such a necessity, and funner for wheeling since your feet don't get soaked...
