Tube doors

With summer coming up i was thinking of pulling the trigger on some tube doors. Looking to get some opinions on brand, and the overall experience with them.
Thanks in advance.

Warrior here, with locks.

Great doors. Love the "factory" latch.

I used Canadian Tire add on convex mirrors plus a carriage bolts, nuts, washers, and a conduit strap.

I welded a piece of plate in mine to attach factory mirrors to.

I use a grade 8 bolt with a Lock nut tightened. So they could be stolen but it would take a LOT of work. Sockets don't fit so power tools are out of the question there.

I run the Rugged Ridge tube doors. They have a plate for the factory mirrors.

Even got stuck on a Side rd and cop just laughed sat to shoot the shit and helped me out.
Doorless it is

They are cool. With tubular doors there is no need for air.

That and in states where doorless is illegal tubular doors might be legal.

I threw the nuts away when I took the doors off. Takes like 5 seconds to go from full doors to tubular doors.

My kids bought me mine for my birthday a few years ago...something I didn't need or expect. I felt obligated to put them on, and after using them, found I really liked having the arm rest and still have the doorless feel. They also give you something to grab onto when getting into a lifted Jeep.

Put HighRock 4x4 Element doors on my 2006 Rubicon and they look great. I constantly get compliments on them, as it appears I'm the only one in my area that has any kind of tube doors. Problem with them was getting them to line up right with the hinges and door closure latch. Took a lot of manipulation to do so, but they look great.

I like my Body Armor doors. A little pricey, but if you look for coupons, you can get them under $300

I have 2 sets but would gladly part with them. Mine line up just fine but I've grown to prefer doorless with mirrors in the upper hinges on my LJ. Quadratec now sells foot pegs that slip into the lower hinges.
