I bought my first jeep about 6 hours ago.
i know this has to be the dumbest question, but how do you remove the upper
door from the half door?

I dont want to break anything but it looks silly with the top off and those upper canvas doors attached.

i have a 1987 YJ

The only dumb question is the one not asked.

There is a plastic strip stitched into the bottom part of the door upper. It is on the outer part at the very bottom just inside the fabric. It hooks under a metal lip fastened to the lower part of the door. You have to sort of pull it down and out or peel it out. It isn't easy. I like to start at one end and work my way down. It is easier than starting in the middle, I think.

Let us know if you need any other help.

don't forget the button at the front of the upper half, undo the button, and slide the lip out.

When I first bought my jeep, my wife and drove it 4 hours to get home. I couldn't understand why the upper doors were flapping so much. When we got home and I started messing around with it I figured out is was because the lip of the skin wasn't tucked into the bottom door.

I've learned so much about jeeps in the last year and every time I get onto this site I learn more!
