Meshugga I don't have any trouble with mine. It might be because with 6" of lift I can hold the doors at a comfortable height to put the doors on.

JTE I made mine from a brass nut used in cheap furniture filed down to the correct diameter. It is a M6 x 1 thread if your looking through your junk box.

A guide on the upper hinge makes it easy to align the pins, also I carry and place the doors from the outside to see the pins better. That way also puts me between the mirror and the cowl.

thanks for that idea...heading outside with the hacksaw

Billy Baldone Yes, but I leave them on all the time.

4WDGroceryGetter It appears to me they get screwed on the top bolt of the door pin and then removed after installation if one wishes to use the nut/bolt to secure the door with that pin. Does that sound correct?

Billy Baldone update: I have installed them, and yes, it makes a huge difference, the whole process is easier. well worth the money

D_ninja $30 seems a little steep.

4WDGroceryGetter I for one feel the doors on our '13 JKUS are a pita!
There is no place to grab them from the inside. You need to grab it from the inside of the window frame and below the door itself to steady while putting the doors on without scratching the paint.
My '82 CJ and '93 Wrangler were a lot easier and the doors weighed about half as much.

Be sure to let us know how they work out

sparky They could be useful, but I agree they are not worth the price.

steve_plunkett I hope somebody buys them and posts about it. Im curious but curious enough to buy them myself

SHADYDC Im sure they do help if you have them, but i dont think they are worth the money, the doors are really not that hard to get on and off. maybe if they were few bucks i could see it

I saw those. I believe you only put them on the upper bolt. This lets you align one at a time. Do the top, lower a bit then the bottom. The rounded end helps too.

CarolinaBound As long as I'm not still feelin' the effects of a Friday/Saturday night with the rugby boys then I would hope I can align two sets of pins. $30 is a good bit of gas money.
