Side note, working the door back and forth with the window open (as stated before) should do the trick, its what I had to do...
WD-40 was a military product when it first came out. It is called "Water Displacement formula #40". It was never meant to be a lubricating oil, just a parts cleaner and worked great on electrical gear. It's flammable but evaporates.
CLP is another great product. "Cleaner lubricant and preservative" was its military name. We all call it Breakfree now.
We used it at sea on the gun mounts to remove corrosion and salt and preserve things.
PB blaster is a great penetrating oil, but I always reassemble things with a shot of CLP.

Tomorrow I'll explain the difference between military "Duck Tape" and the cheap imitation "Duct Tape."

daggo66 Open the window. Stand outside the door facing forward. Reach your arm through the window and grab the arm rest handle. Open the door to about a 45 degree angle. Swing the door back and forth slightly as you pull upward.

Remove jeep doors

I'm trying to remove the doors of my 2008 wrangler unlimited x, I took the screws off and took the door hooks off and unplugged the wires. I also had a friend help and used wd 40, any other tips? I'm not sure the last time the doors were taken off I got the jeep used last summer
Thanks
Ali
