ChopperCharles Okay, awesome. All this info has just reinforced that I want OEM half doors. I don't mind a damp carpet, but I do mind having to pull the plugs. I *really* mind it leaking all over me when I'm driving, especially if I'm in suit and tie. Most of the time I'm not, but sometimes I have to be. I know, it sucks.

I'd go with full doors.... but... I just can't. It just doesn't look right.

No, the factory halfs generally keep it dry though. I did have a slightly damp carpet after a day of heavy rain with the Mopar half doors. The bestop ones would have been pull the plugs time.

No, The factory half doors fit the best. Any half door has a better chance of leaking water than a full factory door.

MTH The factory ones often leak.

It's a large vehicle shaped like a brick with removable and interchangeable doors, a hinged windshield, and removable and interchangeable non-motorized tops.

When you have a soft top and half doors, the entire upper half of your vehicle is essentially kept from the elements by a relatively inexpensive, glorified, multi-piece tent.

"No leaks" is something you hope for, not something you're realistically guaranteed.

At least you have the factory warranty with ones you order from the factory, so if there are leaks you can try to get them fixed for free.

But honestly, I always planned on going with rubber floor mats and pulling the carpet out of my JK, and I'm glad I did. During big rains, some water comes in on my passenger side floor and I don't care. It dries on its own or I wipe it up.

JK ownership is less stressful if your leak concerns are limited to large, cascading amounts of water rather than the occasional damp floor.

Are there any aftermarket half doors that don't leak?

Before I go and custom-order a JK, are there ANY aftermarket half doors with uppers that don't leak? From the sound of it, there aren't, but I want to make sure before I splurge.
