billybobjoe I am also nutless, my jeep came that way Although I am thinking of putting a plastic washer between my upper and lower hinge because the door opening and closing has peeled all the paint off the lower part of my hinge and it's starting to rust. Has anyone done this? The washer I mean.

If you don't have a hard top, you're not deterring anything.

If you do have a hard top and lock the doors, you're good. Can't take the doors off unless they're open.

Peepers On my 98 when I used to put the nuts back on, I could sock them down until the door wouldn't swing anymore. probably just so you can't do that and some idiot would take it to the dealership saying the door doesn't swing anymore...

Megadethx I am also nutless .

I do throw some grease on the pins when I put the doors back on. makes it nice and easy to take the doors off the next time.

As easy as the nuts came off the pins, I don't think keeping them will deter thieves. Besides, the pins are still in the hinge so unless the thief knows what he's looking at, they wouldn't know. Besides, many of us have a canvas top (or no top at all) that is no deterent either. But that's what makes having a Jeep fun... you can do what you want with it.

I understand the sarcasm on what you wrote but I only used the term "bolt" once in my sentence and that was on accident because I was trying to refer it to tightening the door down.



Thanks for the responses though, I suppose it is not as big as a problem as I thought to have to doors on without the nuts.

I removed the lower nuts and tossed them. Then hacksawed off the threaded section, coated the posts in grease and haven't looked back!

Once Far Off Yep - I just left the nuts off.

Hammerdown Someone should come up with a quick release fastener for people who want to feel doubly safe.

I think they mean nuts; they lost their nuts, but it's OK.

Thanks for the speedy response, I will just leave them as is. As long as they can't be undone a hand I'll be fine since it's my DD

Question about putting on full doors

Howdy guys, recently I removed the doors off my TJ for the first time ever. I have put them back on without any problems. Iv'e noticed that after I have tighten down the pins with the nut and try to lift the door, it lifts up a little bit. I wanted to know if this was normal?

My door opens and closes with no problem, but I don't remember my door having a little bit of play before I took off the door with the bolt tighten down. Did I need to add a washer or something? The nut is threaded on right and everything. Anybody have this issue?
