I took my hinge bolts off and never put them back on but I bought a set of these to take my mirrors off to put on my dietech brackets

|clear lake jeepn||I only used the Torx ONCE on my doors to get them off the first time....since then have been hand tightening and loosening only..works pretty good if your doors are on and off all the time..|

Funny - with the user manual now on DVD, there's no mention of the door removal process in the 2011's thin 'user guide' - the thing most likely to actually be in our new JK.
Also funny - my local Home Despot only had a set of driver bits - running up through T-40 (which I had purchased for removing the hard top). No T-50 to be found. Guess it's time to try Lowe's.

Then go fight the mess to get to home depot. Reach for the manual to look up the proper size, and find....nothing again because the manual is back at home. Right where I left it.
Thankfully, the great users here helped me out and I now have the right torx bit . Now I don't have anywhere to go the rest of the weekend so there is no point taking the doors off now. Putting the top back on.

|TangoJK||I would have thought the torx bit was the same for the doors and top too... never really thought about it. Glad you brought it up!|

A full TORX set should be part of the recovery equip-you ALWAYS carry in your jeep !!
Along with the METRIC tools-

Silly me. I assumed the torx bit for door removal would be the same as the one for top removal.
So what is the size of the one for door removal? My handy owner's manual is currently sitting on my desk at home.
