Full Soft Doors

I love these things! Had them on my old TJ and now a full set on my 16 JKU. Yea you get some noise and water in there but they make life easy when you change the setup every couple days or daily. Im loving the black and red too, anyone out there have some soft doors that they want to show off?

Here's my red 2 door with those soft doors. I like the ease and convenience of them too. Difficult part was the adjustment of them. They can be fussy. And you're right red and black do go well together

I believe those are the Bestop soft doors? I bought a front and rear set for my 11 JKU. I'm experiencing two types of fitment issues.

Front- passenger side seems to have snugged down such that the gapping above 60 mph is not terrible but the drivers side is giving problems. I have adjusted via the adjustment points with no success. Thoughts?

Rear- the contour of the doors make it necessary to pull the upper back in order to close. The front swing freely. Also have adjusted at the adjustment points.

Did you or anyone reading this thread have these issues or know a solution?

So the big complaint with full soft doors is fitment and noise. I agree it's annoying these cannot be made to fit better but you have to know up front, there are marketed as Trail Doors. You can foam tube the frame and add bungees to hold the door tighter or bend the frame and then hold it out while closing for a better fit, there are a ton of solutions but I haven't found a way to make it perfect. It's an accepted result of having the freedom and modular convenience that full soft doors offer. Water drips in and wind works its magic but damn it's nice to have them. As for highway speeds or long trips, drop the top and enjoy or switch back to the hard doors.

My 2 cents. I love them but there are cons.

Well said. I love mine too. So easy to take em off and put em on. I pulled my carpets so I'm not concerned about the water factor

Totally agree that the pros far outweigh cons. I have had them all summer and love them! only use them when it rains. Thanks for the thoughts.

I have to agree as well. This is my first Summer with the Soft Upper And Element (Steel) Enclosures and I enjoy it very very much. But I bet, that the steel enclosures provide way more stability to the soft uppers, because after having bend the uppers the doors are sealed by 99% which is totally fine on windy/rainy days.

But highway driving is more quiet with the soft uppers/soft top oft, than on...(and waayy more fun)
