I just purchased my first wrangler...
2003 TJ sport with 82000 miles. Have a question about taking off the doors. Have both tops so I have the bigger doors. What's the best way of taking them off and disabling the dome lights?? Is there a good trick without messing things up??

thanks guys

:wavey: Welcome to the family! Take the nuts off the hinges and lift up...pretty much it, unless they are stuck, then a little lubrication, work the door back and forth, while lifting. The fuse for the lights is behind the glove compartment, it is #4. The lights will still work, you just have to turn them on manually.

I figured there was something simple. I've got the nuts off and bolts loose already, but wasn't sure about dome light. I'm going to go take them off right now so I can feel the breeze this afternoon!!!

Hope I did the right thing by purchasing the manual over the automatic. I have 2 cherokee's with automatics, but I figured for screwing around I would rather have a stick.. My daughter is going to drive it to school as well. She is not afraid of the stick and willing to learn.

Be careful when pulling that fuse, Its also the fuse for your Bell that tells you you left your lights on..... dont ask me how I found that out
