In MD it's illegal to not have a door handle, stupid but true. Nobody actually knows this but OC cops I've heard, just wanted to hear it first hand.

PTWarrior66 I drove through Frederick today with dead tags. I picked up my Jeep after it failed over at J&M truck repair for shot front bushing mounts. They were going to charge me $260 for new shocks and labor, they're a fair place and I'd recommend taking a Jeep there to get inspected, they don't through bullshit at you like 9/10 of the other shops do when you take a Jeep there. I just took it to my buddies they helped me and just swapped in new bushing mounts. Gotta drive it back up and hope not to get pulled over.

just4fun Im in fredneck and to cops up here just take a good hard look at my jeep. Mainly cause I don't have a front license plate and I've gotten a warning ticket for no tag light and my doors were off.

AND, it's illegal to park outside of your property line curb for over 24 hours. Went away for the weekend and my idiot neighbor called - one more day of vacation and my other car would have been towed to the impound in Gaithersburg.
I'm in MoCo as well. The cops are just bored out here.









As for the doors, definitely staying on for the drive (60% chance of rain). But I'm taking them off to cruise around, don't really care if I get pulled over. I'm going to Bethany tomorrow first off.


I'm just worried my door may now be stolen.

just4fun As much as I would love to take my jeep to oc im going to pass. Im probably getting ready for big dogs and crawl 4 the cure at rc in the fall

Hubdeep The long and short of it is, OC municipal law states you have to have doors.

We were pulled over last year for it.

here is another link where someone cited some lines from the law

patricks I wonder if you could pass with saying that you have a door handle on the tailgate door. I mean, it's a door and a handle right??
06-08-2011 07:36 AM
just4fun Its the cops in oc looking out for lifted vehicles and tires out past fenders and acting like idiots .

THat was great. I haven't been down to OC in the jeep in a long time but I usually have the top and doors off and never have had a problem. Just tell the cops that its a jeep thing.

just4fun I went to napa and got two 6" round mirrors and they came with L brackets and I bolt them through the door hinges and been using them for 2 years. I got pulled over for no tag light and the cop said nothing about my mirrors

Ocean City

I'm coming down there Friday, does anyone who lives there know how the police are towards doorless-jeeps?

I've heard they pull you over on sight, but I'm not trying to drive 3.5 hours will doors on, maybe throw them in the back seat?
