No More Half Doors?
 
I just got back from a local dealership...The sales guy told me that half doors are no longer an ordering option... Can anyone confirm this? Doesn't sound right to me...I'm checking with another dealer too but wanted to run it by yous... Anyone else hear or been told this? :confused:

Not according to the info. Pat Fields had passed on: http://www.wranglerforum.com/f33/201...ad-246873.html

Your dealer is an idiot. Surprise!

From the 2014 information thread:

GCH HALF METAL DOORS WITH LOCKS
Includes: MANUAL DOOR LOCKS (JE8)
MANUAL MIRRORS, FOLD-AWAY (GTP)
MANUAL WINDOWS (JF8)
PLASTIC FRONT DOOR WINDOW (GCC)
REAR VIEW DAY/NIGHT MIRROR (GNA)
REMOVE KEYLESS ENTRY (3BV)
REMOVE POWER CONVENIENCE GROUP
(3BS)
REMOVE POWER LOCKS (3BU)
REMOVE POWER WINDOWS (3BT)
REMOVE SECURITY ALARM


Of course, half doors aren't available with a hard top. Maybe that's the dealers confusion?

X2 and your dealer has to select sold order before the half door option becomes available.

They are still available but most dealers it is an only special order option, usually with a deposit required. I predict the next gen Wrangler will probably not have a half door option though.

ONETANGO 06-15-2013 07:45 PM

Thank God. Do want.

You know, as cool as they are, it wouldn't have surprised me if they stopped offering them. I can remember 2 JK's with them out of the thousands of Jeeps I've seen on the road. Perhaps they are more popular where its nicer for most of the year.

mga088 06-17-2013 10:58 AM

Thanks for the input everyone! I'll update if I hear anything else!

Good info.

Do the half doors not move on the lots? Just wondering why Jeep won't let you all stock up on them.

I know they had problems with them when they first came out, but they seem to have solved what ever the issue was. I figure part of the reason you see so few is they seem to only be available through sold orders, so no one is going to be able to walk in and drive off with them.

stupid question... when you order with half doors, do the full doors come in too? O___O

No, half doors are a option. Full doors come standard on any Jeep Wrangler.

ohhhhh, okay.

Random, and may not mean anything because jeep is not known for having correct info on the website but...

The other day I was playing around with the build a jeep and noticed that you could not build a jeep with half doors and a premium fabric top. So it's also possible that you must get the regular top to get half doors.

half doors and a new soft top
 
I have a 1994 jeep wrangler yj with half doors. I just put my new soft top on and I have a gap up at the upper right corner. Why? and What can I do?

No, half doors replace the full doors. It is a "no charge" option.

This is definitely true. You can only get half doors with the standard top, they don't make premium top uppers.

BIOHAZARDCYCLES 06-17-2013 08:57 PM

ordered my 14 with half doors last week
you can not get hard top , dual tops , or premium top
only choice is to get standard soft top and half doors , which is fine with me since im in FL
