2014 door hinge pin- What size socket or torx?

I want to be ready (for when my first jeep I'm buying this spring) to take the doors off. What should I have to undo the bolts that secure the hinge pins? Sorry for the newbe question.

Glad to see that the first thing you plan on doing is take off the doors!
Good luck with the purchase this spring, and remember: don't lose your nuts!

When you use the socket wrench, wrap some duct or eletrical tape around the end of the handle and around the fat part of the socket wrench to keep from scratching your fenders.
Also, I strongly suggest buying these:

Better yet get this or something similar as you will find a use for them somewhere down the line.

I take my doors off all the time. When the weather is good they stay off until rain or cold.

I keep the nuts for the hinges in my glove box but I have never put them back on since the first time I removed them.

I've never had any problem without them fastened.

I second that!

I ordered some minutes after I scratched up my door under the top hinge trying to put it on in the dark.

These things let one hinge get started before the other so that you don't have to line them both up at the same time - much easier and safer for your paint!

Also, you might want to buy a rack to store them or make one out of PVC.

Check out some of the storage systems you can get for your soft windows as well - or your hard top and panels.

The first time I stripped my Jeep I was all excited to open it up and had no place to safely store everything. I ended up putting the doors on pool noodles and leaned them against the wall padded with towels and hung my windows from my garage door frame with spring clamps.

I've been thinking of getting another set of the lower hinges and mounting them to my garage wall for storage...

I've got one of these brackets, and I think it's great. http://www.skinnypedal.net/Door-Hangers_p_512.html

They don't come with any instructions, and they can be mounted upside down, so that took a minute to figure out, but otherwise it's a great way to store your doors.

I wonder how much factory hinges cost opposed to the above?

That's great, thanks! I was planning on trying to build one or mount the hinges. I have a friend who welds, I was just going to have him make one up, but if I can just order one, it would save me the hour drive to his house.

If they are significantly less expensive, I'll build it. If not, I'll order one.
