What do you do with the doors?
 
So I have had my jeep for few weeks now, and finally got a couple of days without rain. The top came down, and the doors off. The wife and I went riding all day, and had a blast. I must admit that the doors are heavier than I remember. :redface: granted that could also be due to a couple of shoulder surgeries. :nonono: I normally just haul my doors inside and lean them against a wall, though am thinking there has to be a better way. Before I start playing around with building something thought I would ask what do you folks do with your doors? Wall hangers, shed, lean them against a wall like me? I dont have a shed or garage. On the plus side mine is a 2 door, so only have the work. :doh:
Oh, after rideing all day my wife looked at me that night and informed me that if she decieds in 6 months that she wants a jeep, she doesnt want to hear jack from me. :thumb::rofl:

I lean them against the wall for now. Waiting on these Door Hangers to arrive

I found one of those Bestop door storage carts on ebay pretty cheap. Mine's a 4DR, which will work, but not without a lot of twisting and turning. But, you shouldn't have any problems with your 2DR. Plus, you can roll it around out of the way. I used to just lean them up against the wall, but the bottoms get dinged and scractched. I may try the Lange wall-mount brackets or something similar as soon as I have a wall that I can put holes in. We're in a rental at the moment.

Wall, in the back, in the yard. Where ever.

I just pile them in the back seat.

I have those for my four doors and they're awesome. Mount them at waist level and you won't struggle as much with the weight of the doors. And they swing flush to the wall.

I use these from Home Depot. I use the same ones for a holder I created for my TJ hardtop.

Found this online while I've been getting ready to take delivery of my JKU and will probably be going this route.

He modified it at the end and made it smaller and portable.

I just lean 'em against the wall. However, I have a piece of styrofoam that I rest them on to avoid scratches and dents.

I put them in Smittybilt door bags and put them in a shed-one scratch by me or my kids pays for the bags.

Agree, full doors are in bags for the summer

That's what I plan to do. Put some foam against the wall an wrap the doors in a few blankets to protect from scratches an dings

JerryJeepster 05-23-2013 04:14 PM

I keep them in bed with me.

I put them back on the Jeep. I got sick of taking them on and off each night. I'm out of wall space, so I put a blanket down and laid them on the floor of the garage....which of course meant I had to park outside of the garage....without doors. Catch-22 for the win....
