I have always hesitated removing my hard doors but now driving around for few days without doors are awesome. I don't think I will ever put them back on. Only for safety and reassurance I bought some tube doors and they are great. I think I'm getting better MPG also. Those doors are heavy. I think I got rid of least 120lbs of dead weight. These new Rancho tube doors are very light and sturdy. I love the wind blowing on my legs also. It looks and feels like a new jeep now. I bought them at Quadratec and the delivery was fast and smooth. Here is the deal they sent me a promotion code for 10% off your next order between 7-18 to 7-28. So first one to PM me I will give you the code. Enjoy.

Mine has been door less for the better part of a month now. I only put the doors back on if there is a good chance of rain. I need to get mirror relocation brackets though.

That is exactly why I love my half doors. Easy off, easy on.

My doors and top come off all summer. If it rains, I just get wet or don't drive. Wife feels better with tube doors, and I like to look, so they're usually on.

I'm the same way, but unfortunately around here there's a good chance of rain every day. I'll take the doors off on my days off when I know I'll only be making short trips around town, but I seldom drive to work without them because there's usually a chance of rain at some time during the day.

Your wife should be more concerned about the sport bars being removed...

I like topless/doorless as much as possible. Only problem is we have had a lot of rain lately and I am on the road a lot for work. The wife likes to steal the jeep when I am traveling and isn't too comfortable putting the rampage frameless on. We were out the other night and she saw one of the bestop all weather trail covers on another jeep and she says "why don't you get one of those?" So I promptly hopped on Amazon before she could change her mind. It will be there tomorrow. 😀

Doors have been off since April. I do throw the Bestop full soft doors on if I'm expecting some weather but driving without a top and doors is certainly one of the best parts of owning a Jeep, especially on pavement.

OK thanks for posting your thoughts on this subject. The 10% off promotion code is gone now. I'll post more codes when I get them. I buy tons of stuff from Quadratec.

You have to try the tube doors lots of companies make them under different name. Body Armor looks nice but to much $$. I like the simple look of the Rancho. Also feel knowing that I have something there to catch me if I do fall out of the doors.

I doubt having 2 huge holes in the side of your Jeep is helping with MPG

It may or may not, but I swear when I have the top and doors off it feels like it glides a lot smoother down the road. Does a little when the doors are off and the back window is off. I guess cause of the Jeep being a rolling brick and with some of that off it lets the air flow better lol.

I work outside lots... temps hitting 40C some days. I love the cool breeze as I drive home. I leave the top on for relief from the direct sun I work under.
