Yeah thats what Im talkin bout, the collars, theres only 1 still there so Im thinkin of finding more at the autoparts store they have them...

87YJWrangler Mine dont sit high enough should I get those slider things that tighten up I know Im missing 3 out of 4 I dont plan on using my doors much longer but I need them for the rest of the winter would that help move them up?

dieselgus1 Well, the bending technique worked wonders! My doors are now sitting right up against the door frame. Who woulda thought just forcing them woulda done it.

90yjwrangler Guess thats why only my driver side does it. That door just gets more action....lol. I'm gonna go bend mine. Thanks

afrats Sounds pretty technical.
12-26-2008 07:18 PM
dieselgus1 hmmm thats good to know that its the recommended way to seal them, bending haha, thanks though ill give it a shot..guess it cant be worse than it is now.

chezuki ^x3 That's actually what the Bestop installation manual says to do to properly fit the soft uppers.
12-26-2008 09:57 AM
Ol' Red ^x2 if you bend it in it will "seal" it better.

racer-xerols I opened my doors (92 YJ, half doors), grabbed the top edge of the door with my knee braced against the lower part, and pulled the top edge in towards the cab bending the soft upper frame. Now, the doors "seal" (quotes are intentional, it's still nearly as drafty as my motorcycle) a little better and gusty wind pulls them out of the frames less, but when pulling them inwards they also went back a little bit, and now the top rear corner catches just a little when opening them. YMMV.

90yjwrangler Same problem here. Only on the driverside for some reason though...???

Soft doors loose, wont seal

Hi all, I have a 95 Wrangler with soft half doors that will not seal against the door frame. They are kind of loose, and when i drive on the highway, they kind of wiggle in and out creating an annoyance, but also allowing wind to come inside. Anyway to make these press up agaisnt the door frame again or do i need to get some new door hardware maybe? Thanks!
