1. Keeping the doors safe whilst storing them in the garage

As for #1, if you dont need to store a hard top, you might think about getting (or building) something like these..

Quadratec Exclusive JW-DSC - Deluxe Storage Cart for Half or Full Steel Doors - Quadratec

09D0018 - Steel Door Storage Cart for Jeep® CJ-7, CJ-8 Scrambler & Wrangler YJ, TJ, Unlimited - Quadratec



If you insist on taking the GF w/ you, this MIGHT solve some of the complaints about safety..

http://www.quadratec.com/products/11146_1000_07.htm

Plenty of companies make them, this was just the first link I found..just an idea..

the problem here is that you need a better girlfriend. find one w/ her own jeep and this will not be a problem. the nagging will still be there, it will have just move on to a different subject, like "he i wanna drive my jeep today." the "nagging" feature is standard in all girlfriends there are other available options to replace this, but they are far less popular. see, i nag my hubby, but i have my own jeep so there is never a problem w/ me nagging about the jeep.

Well buy 2 dogs. One to watch the doors on even days and then one to watch them on odd days. You can have your balance with one dog! Everything is safe and dogs don't nag

Sb5551 Buy a dog. That'll solve number 2.

tarheel I run the floor vent or the dash vents when I have the Jeep closed up. Like it was said above this will increase the inside pressure and puff out the top/windows lessening noise from flapping.

MR.CLIFFORD If all your windows are closed and you run your defrost selection it will pressurize the cab and keep the windows off the cage. Helps keep the noise down too. That all depends on how air tight your soft top is.
04-23-2009 05:15 PM
daanbc Thanks. I don't know why this bothers me, but it did. I'll try that tomm. after work.
04-23-2009 05:14 PM
Unlimited Yep.... That's normal. When you drive with your windows open, it creates negative pressure inside the Jeep. You can alleviate this somewhat by opening the back window up.
04-23-2009 05:12 PM
Dare2BSquare Unzip the rear window a little to let some air flow through.

Rear side windows cave in softtop

Do all the softtop rear side windows cave in while driving? I noticed this with my clears, but now that i have the tinted ones they really cave in more touching the cross bar. If i drive with the windows closed it's not that much but still noticable while looking thru the side mirrors at them. Just curious.
