DRIVER'S SIDE:

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.

REINSTALL:

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.
Just tries it again and it was soooo much easier! Thank you

Or if your lazy or have a long walk with your doors keep the top of the door frame on your shoulder. While still holding the inside handle from the outside. I keep my doors in my office.

ps: i got her # tho.

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

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.
You tell 'em how its done!

I'll admit, putting them on imo is def harder cuz if u don't line it up.perfectly the first time you spaz and wiggle around for awhile to get it in. I can see where the issue is.

kjeeper10 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

5"11 and 200 here, no problem lifting the doors here, but I am used to lifting and loading scuba equipment all year.

BAP 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

yeah I know what you mean. Sometimes things come out easily but getting back to same position is remarkably tough. I had so many situations like these..

elektrk1 You are talking about full doors right. I think the gym should be everyones friend.
02-19-2012 02:45 AM
1CrzyCelt Well, I'm 5'10" and a fit 190lbs.....I can fake not being able to handle the doors if I need to. lol
02-19-2012 01:57 AM
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?
02-19-2012 01:55 AM
Bushwacker Bud Man I feel out of place here to....... I'm 6'3 and 255! But the gym is my friend too!

BeaverJeeper hmm. i guess i'm just ripped. lol i'm 6' 140 pounds. full doors, never had had trouble lifting the doors and getting them on by myself. but, i cycling a lot and lift using my legs. my arms do none of the work. lol

1CrzyCelt I'm gonna have to remember that in the off chance a single hottie might move in next door.

stangruns11s im 5'9 215 its pretty easy for me but the gym is my friend

Vin Practice makes perfect. You'll get a technic that works for you, eventually.
02-19-2012 12:27 AM
Mr_RPM 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
