Took my doors off for the first time today. Thought I'd share some pics and show my storage plan.

The hardware on the wall is from Kobalt. They're called K-Rails, I think. rated to support 75lbs per foot. And, they're affordable, compared to other options marketed directly at Jeep owners. $40.00 for all the hardware. Just make sure you get em on the studs.

I just did this wednesday, also for the 1st time! Why did I wait 3 weeks?! My storage is a tad different, though. I am all out of wall space, yard tools, work benches etc.

That's actually a pretty sweet setup. If I had 4 doors, I'd probably do something similar.

I took mine off a couple weeks ago, sadly though I don't have storage for them, so they had to go back on :banghead:

Yeah working on that. Just ordered a cart to store it on. Once that thing gets here. BOOM!! Freedom town. Population me.
Just set it on two 2x4's, or the garage floor. I wouldn't let waiting on a special cart stop me from taking the top off...

You make too much sense when you talk like that. Be careful.
Haha! Seriously, taking the hard top off is no big deal. With an extra set of hands, you can have it done in less than 10 minutes... 5 if you're in a hurry. Be careful though, taking your hard top off without special rigging and hippie gear may cause increased facial hair, the urge to chop firewood, calluses on your hands, and normalization of testosterone levels. It's not something to take lightly

With great facial hair, comes great responsibility.

Lol ^^

Fwiw, mine sit on the concrete floor in the garage. City life = less garage space, esp. with a dually and an SUV stuffed in there, so the rails are an awesome idea for my situation. Lately though, it's all rain at around 100-105 degrees :(

I actually found a guy who makes wooden dolly/carts with padding and a rear hatch retainer, on eBay. He's selling the whole setup for $120. That's what I went with. I'd be willing to just set it on the garage floor. But, I want it to be vertical, to save space. Garage space is at a premium with a jeep and a motorcycle.
