I bent this piece of 3/8" galvo'ed round stock (from tractor supply) in the holes of my hi-lift jack.

Only thing is, it uses both hinge tubes.

You'll want to be in a constant state of being ready to pull your leg back inside within a millisecond! It is kinda nice, but don't put one on the passenger side. If your leg gets smooshed off by a truck, you'll live with that much easier than if it was your passenger's leg.

copleydad Didn't want to invest a lot of money for mirrors, so found a piece of 1/2" angle bar, some old pickup mirrors, couple of bolts and a can of black paint and fabbed these Obama Ears looking mirrors. Took about an hour to make them up and they work great with the doors off

beefmobile in texas i believe its just two anywhere. btw, my pass side mirror doesnt seem to be in rangle to work. i just can see out it. do i need the mirror relocation brackets?
08-21-2009 01:57 PM
NAVYCHIEF you got mirrors? in WA we are required to have a drivers side mirror plus 1. either windshield mount or passengers side. also, be careful with your leg hanging out. it only takes one as---le to rip yer leg off.

The rubber mallet should only be used on the feder if you drop the door on your foot.
This worked^

Thanks to everyone who chimed in to help!

while I was at is fabbed up some no door day mirrors. It's supposed to be like 78 and sunny on friday...

1992wranglersahara I agree with copleydad, but grab someone to help you, should the door actually pop out.. remember, you are wearing your Superman shirt

NAVYCHIEF if a full door, open the window push up with your arms or back and lift wtih your legs. some hinges have a nylon spacer in them. if yours do, do not lose them.
08-18-2009 05:39 PM
birdhunter You lift as you are swinging all the way front to back

HELP Doors Wont Come Off

Oh please help me! My YJ's doors wont come off. I have removed the nut, cleaned the area with wd-40, let dry. I then sprayed a liquid wrench type of lubricant, (not wd-40), and swung the door back and forth for a while...

Lifted straight up and the whole jeep rocked, but alas the door is still on...

Any Suggestions?
