I'm thinking of buying an '07 X, but I do want to be able to take the doors off. I'm a bit concerned because the Wikipedia page says this about the X-S: "The X-S model features 32-inch tires (on 17-inch wheels), air conditioning, fog lights, cruise control, driver’s seat height adjuster, removable doors, and a fold-down windshield." This implies that the X does not have removable doors.

2 questions:

1 - does the X have removable doors?
2 - is there an easy way to tell the difference between and X and and X-S? he particular model I'm looking at is sold as an X, but it does have A/C so I'm wondering if it's actually an X-S.

Thanks.

As far as I know every wrangler has removable doors. I don't think they ever made one without removable doors

The "S" was probably a trim or option added to the "X" model that provided the 32", 17" wheel tire and some various luxuries. I'm almost positive it's pretty much the equivalent to the sport and sport S today.

Thanks, I'm just concerned because it explicitly says that the S added removable doors and fold down windscreen.

No, all Wranglers have removable doors. It's an integral feature of the vehicle.

Keep in mind that Wiki is not gospel, the info is only as accurate as the person who wrote the page.

You are fine. Unless they welded the doors on, you can be assured the are removable. Note: if the doors have never been off, they may be difficult to remove. Do not under any circumstances, use a jack to lift the doors , even though some have been successful using jacks, I have seen several "oops" posts that indicate damaged doors using a jack. Use the search function to find one of the many threads.

They are removable but can you remove them is an open question.
They can be a real pita and you may need to resort to a jack to get them off. Curse words help👍

Remove the nuts first😉

I certainly got my doors off. Took a while with plenty of PB Blaster, a floor jack, and a lot of swinging and pulling. Once you get them off make sure to clean and grease the hinge pins. And even better beat the old bushings out and go with delrin liners.

Definitely removable doors. As others have stated before, the X was renamed Sport in 2010 but for all intents and purposes, they are the same.
