Door Tool
 
I found a tool that fits up against the my JK and allows you to take off the screws to the doors. I took some Moleskin and adheared it to the top of the rechargeable screwdriver so it dose not scratch the paint. Worked out great cut down the time it took to take off the doors. Just wanted to let you guys know.

So far so good

I just never put the bolt things back on

I don't even know where mine are at, or even remember what they look like.

Do you think that if they were after them the little bolts would stop them?

What if these door thiefs read this post and find out about this door tool? Then we will all be in danger! :whistling:

Blue Rubicon 04-21-2013 05:25 PM

Then they will get to see how my other tool works.

No but 8 bolts will slow you down... I use my door locks on my house knowing someone can still break in.

I admit I haven't had my JK for long, but I'm not new to Jeeps at all, and I've NEVER heard of anyone having their doors stolen.

We must live in two totally different kinds of areas. Not once have I ever been worried about someone stealing my doors. If you are that worried about it you might want to look into the locking nuts for the doors.

No I just see a lot of people get their things taken and get taken advantage of on a daily basis.

AZikas86 04-21-2013 05:52 PM

this is just me but if I keep the doors locked how are they going to take them off and steal them without the alarm going off, and someone noticing them? good idea, but I leave mine off, If you are very careful with a ratchet it won't scratch either.

This was just an idea for everyone. Ratchet works perfect I put a small towel behind it when I used it, just in case.

BaldwinJeep 04-21-2013 06:07 PM

I'd steal some half doors in black if I could find them.


Just kidding! No door nuts on mine either.

So we do live in two totally different areas then.

How can they steal my door if there locked

RKracing 04-21-2013 06:28 PM

Crap....you guys bought doors with your Jeeps :facepalm: What fur?

JTE 04-21-2013 07:45 PM

Those cap nuts are there to help ever so slightly in side impact protection.

I've only seen it once...online. Doors and hood stolen in a hotel parking lot.

I use cordless impact on mine and its a lot faster. Also my jk is black so I didn't want to scratch it also. I used a nice sized refrigerator magnet (flat) and just moved it to each bolt works great.

Afmcronnie 04-22-2013 07:19 AM

I use a screwdriver with a flexible shaft. I keep the driver and the torx sockets for the doors and the soft top in the cubby.

EricsRubi 04-22-2013 08:00 AM

Previous dumb ass owner tried to take the doors off but couldn't figure it out, how do i know? He left a big quarter sized half inch inward ding behind the nut, only barely noticeable from afar with the nut off (thank god)

Blue Rubicon 04-30-2013 09:37 PM

That's good that you can't see it.
