Half doors

It seems like the factory half doors are cut lower than the aftermarket options, and I want a full set for a 4-door...... OEM doors are out of my price range and pick-a-parts never have jeeps from what I can tell. Ebay has left me empty.

Anyone know where I should be looking? Prefer to get the Flare red or whatever my stock color is, but will repaint any if necessary.

I searched for half doors for the last 3 days since getting my jeep and I am just a little surprised used half doors are nowhere to be found

You will most likely have to paint them, but check the Junk yards.

The half doors are rare. I have a set coming from Quadratec and the whole bundle will cost around 2000 for front doors before painting and mirrors.

The Strike Force Zebra doors maybe a better option if you are not hung up on the OEM doors.

They are pricey but I love mine.

Don't overlook getting a quote from the dealer. Go to the online Mopar dealers, get a quote and see if your dealer will come close. I ended up using an online dealer from FL and got a killer deal for everything (doors, inner panels and uppers) at about $1600 (in primer). I spent less than $100 for paint and supplies and had a friend paint them.

Just for Jeeps and Quadratec are too expensive, they are just buying them from a mopar source and marking them up. These are not that hard to assemble, paying someone to assemble them is not a wise use of your money if you are even slightly handy.

That makes sense, dealers will usually do a deal. Unfortunately in Australia it is not an option (half doors not sold here) so we have to find a company that will ship here at a reasonable cost.

Right, doesn't usually work for out of the states. Sorry for those who have to import parts.

your experience is very interesting to me. I too am in the market for half doors. would you mind sharing what dealer you are referencing? That's quite the deal and i'd like to take advantage of it if possible.

This was close to 2 years ago but I ended up buying from. factorychryslerparts.com I know they wanted more for shipping once someone looked at it but I argued that they quoted me that, they need to honor the price. YMMV.

You could take the quote they give you to a local dealer and see how close they would come to it. Someone like Kernersville Dodge might match it and give you free shipping (but also charge tax)

Looking at moparamerica (31 Dodge) They are getting
$87.40 for the trim
$426.65 for the windows
$1101.70 (82212124AC)

I just took a quick look and the prices went up a few bucks but is still just a bit over $1500
This was the order:

Order Contents:
P/N Quantity Price EA Description
82212639 1 $ 81.32 DOOR KIT, Half Doors. Trim.Front Half Door Interior Trim Kit, Black (DX9).
82212132 1 $ 396.97 Half Doors, WINDOW KIT. Soft Top.Front Upper 1/2 Door Black, Front Upper Half Door Windows, pair, Black, same as production..
82212124AB 1 $ 1,025.06 DOOR KIT, Half Doors.
Order summary:
3 products , 3 items $ 1,503.35
Shipping & Handling to NC, USA $ 69.95
Total
$ 1,573.30

Keep watching Amazon.
I found this one night about 11 pm. 780 bucks plus tax and shipping was free!
Thought it was probably a mistake, but they showed up a few days later.


I paid 400 bucks for the uppers, and I think the door panels were around 80 bucks on ebay. Cost 500 bucks to have them painted.

That’s a great deal. I just called a few junk yards and one told me they could sell me all 4 doors at $500 a piece including the uppers. They’re all different colors but this may be the way I’ll go.

Damn, wish I could have found that deal!

I hate the factory half doors for the front (or for two doors), but I would be all over that for the rears. I leave my rear lower soft doors in all the time, and remove the uppers and the whole front door when it isn't raining.

I agree, this is how I would love to run my Jeep.

That's not a bad deal.
Should get you half doors painted for around 3k

1/2 doors are NOT year specific. They fit from 07-18.

Bad information. ^^^
They work just fine on my '12.
'07 to '18 JK-JKU all the same.
Only difference is the door to body harness plug(changed late '12-early '13), and the interior trim panel color(changed in '11).

Good to know. I saw the Amazon listing and made a bad assumption

Hang in there with your search. It took me a year to find a set in my color and at a price point I could live with. Ironically, I found it here on wranglerforum when a member posted he was selling his. Luckily, I was near his location and was able to meet up and buy them.

Keep looking, it might take weeks/months until you find a good deal, just make sure you have the money ready.


Anything less than $2K for a full set of oem lowers/uppers is a great deal!
If you find a color match, even $3K for a full set of four would be considered a great deal.
