Bestop Element Half Doors with Uppers
 
My 05 TJ came with full doors, but I'm bound and determined to get half doors for the upcoming spring and summer.

I've looked around and so far the best solution to get as close to factory as possible are the Highrock Element Doors from Bestop, with the factory painted option and uppers.

HighRock 4x4 Element Doors by Bestop - Quadratec

Has anyone gone this route? Opinions? They are expensive, almost a grand, but will give me the factory half doors.

Thanks in advance all!

I have them. I would rather have factory half doors, but these will do. The Bestop doors do not lock, have no bolts on hinge pins, don't really seal around the tub, and the latches rattle. No problem for me because my Jeep is not my daily driver, and these doors are my summer offroad doors. I got the whole mess, tube doors, outer skins, bags, and soft uppers for $400.00 used. At that price, and what I do with my Heep, I think they're great.

Save your money and find some OEM half doors with uppers.

Keep a look out on craigslist or any of the local free classifieds in your area, and be prepared to jump when they pop up.

^ I agree. Even though I have these doors, and they work for what I need them to, I would never pay a grand for the whole set new.:eek:

I am kind of doing the same thing as original poster but in reverse. I bought a very nice restored 1987 yj with sport roll bars that came with a bikini top and element doors ( and uppers).. Last year I just used a trail cover for the days it rains, ( not a daily driver)..
But this year I'm considering adding a soft top but need. Soft top that will match the element door uppers. My doors just look like the ones pictured above.

Any help would be appreciated.
