So I have come to the conclusion that I really want half doors..the choice is between these two because the core doors are out of budget. I would use the half doors from May until Oct. In Illinois we get pop up storms frequently during the summer and going out without doors is sometimes a battle. My question is for my purposes would it be a good idea to spend twice the money and get the element doors with enclosures and uppers or just get the soft doors. The other issue is the passenger side mirror...I read that the soft doors if you mount the mirror on the tub that you cannot see it with the upper on the door.
