On the plus side, if you do get up the balls to ask her out, she'll probably just take her bra off for you, cuz she knows you'll never be able to figure it out

Us old guys has learned you just gotta get the technique.
REMOVE: Make sure nut is off bottom of top hinge.
Open door; remove strap from door to frame; roll down window; from the outside reach right hand/arm through window and grasp pull strap; lift up, opening and closing door slightly to work it up. Set it aside.
Reach through window from outside with right arm, grasp pull strap and lift, holding against body. Use the free, left hand to guide top hinge to begin insertion: once it barely starts, adjust door so bottom hinge is in alignment using left hand. Lower into place.
Passengers Side: Reverse
Works for me.

I'm 5'2", 105lbs, blonde, like long walks on the beach...
I take my full TJ doors on and off with no problem. The gym does help though. I reach through the open window and grab the handle while propping the bottom of the door on my leg until I get the hinges lined up and it slides right in.

just had to check
Got me thinking/wondering. Hadn't had the full doors off my 94 YJ for awhile and figured it would be a good time to grease them. Took off both doors, creased hinge and put back on in about 3 minutes.

Tj was easier. I used to roll the window down and put one arm through-other from the bottom.
I had my Jk doors off once. To be honest-forgot on how I did it- doors were heavier though

i m sorry but this thread makes me feel pretty good about myself,,,
i just turned 50yrs.old im 5ft 2in. and weigh in at150..and have zero problem lifting full doors or well anything up to 200lbs, just yesterday me and my son put a 500lb frontend loader bucket in the back of a full size pickup bed..
and have never been a friend of the gym.--i guess being an old dirt farmer cutting and splitting firewood fencing and hanging alot of gates and just plain ole good hard work has been my friend..plus fighting men 3 times my size on a regular basis has,nt hurt me either(mma)--lol
but really it just takes some practice you did roll down the window didny ya, and the 90 degree angle will help..when i reinstall i dont really even think about it...
and i truley belive things happen for a reason-----use that #
best of luck and GOD BLESS

|elektrk1||You are talking about full doors right. I think the gym should be everyones friend.|

|bobowrangler||haha im 5' 9", 150 lb. I'm not the super buff type but since i fence, lifting the door is no problem. but lining up the hinges was a pain in the a$$ (also cuz it was a bit dark). I put the doors back on at about 45 degree angle, is it easier if it's 90 degree?|

I have a hard time putting them back on, off is no problem though.
I have poor balance when lifting heavy things all while trying to line up the hinges. I have done it before but now i get help
