KidRock171 Try harder. It happens. Keep it up and they will come off. The swinging action helps.

Wesboy The bottom hinges on ny Jeep sometimes get out of alignment.
If I loosen the Torx on the hinges the doors just slide right off.

You need a T40 for the Torx holding the hinges to the body - but those suckers are on TIGHT - make doubly sure you don't strip them. I got a T-handle T-40 Torx especially for this job

sevenservices try opening the door 2/3 of the way or so? Finding the sweet spot so to speak...

pulling up while swinging open to closed to open to closed?

stuck doors

Does anyone have any ideas as to how I can get the doors of my 04 wrangler off. I have tried WD40, PB Blaster, tapping on the hinges with a hammer and I even tried using a 2 1/2 ton jack to try to lift them up but they are not budging. Thanks in advance.
