Blackbeard1718 Today, my Bestop Half Doors will be delivered via UPS. Can't wait!!!

I ordered the Element Tube Doors, Element Enclosure Kit (Outside Door Panel), and the Element Upper Doors (Windows). Total cost was $776 with Shipping from Quadratech.

I'd been searching for Stock Half Doors for almost three months now, and can't find anything cheaper than $3,400 on EBAY. I don't want Half Doors "THAT BAD"!!!

The prices on the Stock Half Doors are ridiculous! My Dealer said I'd have to "Piece them together", by buying the individual parts. For example, just the Outer Shell ONLY..... is $900 per each door! If I wanted to build them this way, I've already invested $1,800 in just the two Outer Door Shells.

My next option, was possibly buying the River Raider Half Doors, that they've designed. SWEET looking Doors, but $1,400 for the Front Doors, and it doesn't include the Upper Doors (Windows). They would fit the Factory Upper Doors, which would cost an additional $500.

I don't care for the Full Doors, as it makes my Jeep look like a Truck, so I opted for a less expensive alternative, and went with the Bestops. Once I get the Panels painted to match my Jeep, it should look pretty decent!

I've had Craigslist Want Ads out in four areas in Texas for the Stock Half Doors, and not one response yet. Unless you're willing to spend $4K on a set of Stock Doors, Trade someone your Fulls for their Halves, or luck upon a Junkyard Find..... you're not going to get them anytime soon!

Best of Luck!

Cheers!

lakeview Thanks for the reply. Thousands $$$, OUCH! Hope Mopar has a solution then that's cheaper. Surely there's a big market for them.

thaduke2003 As of right now, you'd have to buy it from the parts department piece by piece, which gets EXENSIVE- over $2k, I've heard.
Mopar will be releasing a kit around June/July (depending on the bankruptcy preceedings), which should be a lot easier and cheaper.
And you can get half-doors on any model- have your dealer run a search. Also, ask them if they'll hook you up with half-doors if you give up your fulls- they very well may- Mark W.

1/2 doors vs. full doors, how much $$$

I'm finding Rubi's with only full doors. How much is it to order metal 1/2 doors? The 1/2 doors only seem to be stock on the X models. Are they available as an aftermarket product? I only seem to find soft 1/2 doors when I search on-line.
