My half-door plan
 
So my rig came w/ full doors. When I bought it last season, I also got some Besttop fabric halfdoors. I was happy w/ this solution for a while, but since the fabric doors don't fit all that great for wet weather, i'm getting a bit tires of swapping doors back and forth.

I also am not in love w/ driving top-down w/ the full metal doors as I still feel to "enclosed".

That being said, I'm thinking of getting some (full/metal) half-doors.

So 2 questions:
1) Any brand better than the other? I was looking at the RR doors and they look ok.
2) Instead of having the new doors painted to match factory, I'm thinking of bedlining the suckers. I get the same look w/ my besttop doors and I think it looks ok with black doors.

Suggestions/opinions welcome

I bought my Mopar half doors a few months after I bought my Rubicon, so I was still on a New Jeep high and didn't care about spending the cash. Even after all the various half doors started showing up, I still prefer the Mopar ones over the aftermarket.

They are $1600 on Quadratec (doors, panels and uppers) and come primed not painted. Dealer quoted me $900 a door to paint silver but said they could do black for less than $350 a door.

I'm also waiting for the Ace doors to come out. I want a tube door more than a regular half door, but like the idea of being able to add the skin to it later to make it more like a regular half door.
