best tube/safari doors
 
what safari/tube doors do you guys use? i want some sort of protection against a potential collision. i know the best doors in the summer are no doors, but my dad demands i have something. and there is no way i want to be cruising with the top down and FULL. STEEL. DOORS......arghh

and i have been looking into getting OEM half doors in my color flame red (PR4) to no avail.

and getting any other color half doors plus the cost of painting is waay over my budget right now.

honestly, tube doors arnt meant to keep anything out and really arnt even there to keep you in lol why not just get the half doors and paint them black with a rattle can? would look good with a red jeep

yeah i was also looking into that as well. IMO it looks pieced together as opposed to matching doors.

I use the bestop element doors. I'm building my half doors and with the element doors you buy the rails, enclosures and uppers seperately. Another great thing about the element doors is that they are pre-drilled for your stock mirrors eliminating the need to relocate them. It's as close as you can get to doorless and keep the rents happy.

Have you shown your dad the sticker that says "doors only serve to keep the elements out"? Just saying...... Wear a seatbelt and keep your feet in when you are in a possible side impact situation....

i used to have the olympic safari doors. they were nice, but i ended up selling them because i ended up liking "no doors" better. if i were to re-buy safari doors, i'd probably go with the bestop element doors because of how versatile they are.
