Thinking how to carry doors
 
I bought some cloth full doors for my jeep and I am trying to dream up a way to transport them my first thought was to make a basket out of rod that would hang on the spare and just let them sit in it in a bag but I do not know if the weight would be bad for my tailgate hinges. I would like to be able to carry the doors with me that way I can have the top down as much as possible.

Two piece cloth doors? The weight will absolutely not be an issue. Bouncing and rubbing might be: make sure your doors are secure, and that the "glass" isn't rubbing on anything (blanket/fleece wrap, or something of that nature).

Upright behind the front seat is probably the most common "normal" storage spot, but I've seen others do some clever storage things on the spare.

I have bag that used to fit behind backseat between the tailgate and upper doors and back windows would fit inside with factory soft top folded down. But have since removed back seat and run a duster so just put bag flat in back area-either on top or bottom depending on what is back there and how heavy it is.

The reason I do not just put them behind the front seat is I have passengers very often and would like to be able to use my rear seat. I was thinking a basket and a bag with compartments for each door piece.

The bag I have allows for all 3 factory top windows and soft uppers to be stored behind the BACK SEAT-even with the top folded down. However there is no room for anything else behind the seat once they are put there.

I have the soft upper doors and have a bag for those and built a little rack that bolts on to the studs for the spare. I built it out of 1 inch square tubing. I holds just fine. I didn't build it big enough for the doors on purpose. I figure if it's nice enough not to need the doors( uppers or lowers) I don't need the top on either. It was easy to build.
