Clear soft doors?
 
There's this CJ in my neighborhood with clear soft full doors. I really like the looks of them and was wondering if anyone knew of some for a TJ?

Like the Patroller doors on Maule Aircraft? That would be cool. :cool:

One piece soft doors with a window in the top and the bottom?

No one sells them new anymore, and don't think they were ever sold for a TJ. Bestop, Acme, and maybe Kayline used to sell that style.

Smokey, this is not 'Nam. This is bowling. There are rules.

They should really start making them new. It looks so cool, and I would totally buy them

Nice open feeling w/o being wide open. Would be cool for rainy days and staying dry w/o getting claustrophobic.

You could just get some tube doors and apoxy some lexan to them

JeepForum (boo hiss, we hate them...:p) has a thread going on this topic.

I have NO idea why this is suddenly popular. Back in style?

Anyway, someone over there found a set of these doors, which were only made for CJs, and modified them for a TJ.

Interesting project.

I can only imagine how easy they would be to scratch.

VVCG33 11-13-2010 09:48 PM

I don't think they would be too different from the soft top windows scratch-wise...

I personally LOVE my Bestop sliding glass uppers :)

Hey BTW Geoff, on my right soft slider, the trim is starting to come off from the vinyl which is probably from rough handling from the past owner. Any products or info that could help put that back together?

I want to see pics!!

There's just more there to scratch that's further down.

The idea of it is cool,but that in that pic,it looks like HOT DOOKEY!If it were done properly,it could be cool!

All you need to do is buy some soft lower doors that actually seal somewhat, cut out your leg window (ankle window?) and cut out the clear plastic from the rear window you bought on Craigslist (it only had one tear in it) and glue that sucker in there. If you happen to have an industrial strength sewing machine, that will help. Bask in the glory of your new lower window. Now everyone can see you scratch your walls. Or something that rhymes with walls.
