I'm desperately trying to justify ordering my '14 Rubicon with half doors. My concern is that it says on the website (when building a '13) that it requires removal of auto a/c. Does that mean it deletes the a/c entirely or does it just come with a stripped down version.

Also, what happens on the center console where the power window switches are supposed to be? I cant find a pic of this anywhere.

Thanks in advance

Rubicon comes standard with AC. You can't get the upgraded AC with automatic temperature control system with half doors.

Bingo! Agreed. A few on here have done it. It's a smooth panel in place of the window switch. It's a great location to mount your CB hook.

I really wanted half doors when I bought mine. The salesman said we can order you one if you like but keep in mind you will have to zip/unzip your windows at the drive through. I had an older YJ with half doors, but it was a 4th vehicle, not a daily. I agreed and got the full doors, and couldn't be happier. I get my Dunkin coffee every morning and have no problem rolling them up or down. And aside from the stupid inside handle being useless in helping with door removal, they are easily removable. Just my .02 from someone who really wanted the half doors,and ended up being happy. My climate helped sway me too.

So far I've heard a ton of people say they wish they bought half doors, and not a single person say that they wish they bought full doors. So I'm sold, half doors it is. I've had a Jeep with full doors for 4 years now and every time I see one with half's my pants get tight.

You buying a 2 or 4 door? I'm getting an Unlimited Rubicon with half doors. The thing that drives me nuts is paying for the power windows, locks and security system and they aren't even installed. I guess if you are buying a 2 door then you don't have to worry about paying for the power convenience group. One post to getting the power convenience group is that I can also get the front side airbags.

Congrats on your half door decision! BTW, I hardly use the drive thru window and when I do I likely won't have the doors or uppers on:D

I've seen people paint the b pillar black and it blends right in.

I'm going with the 2 door. I'm actually at the dealer as I type this. I'll let you know if they let me get away without adding the power convenience group which I also don't want.

You think it would look better with the top off and full doors on?

Here is a picture of the b pillar painted black



I stole this picture thanks to google...

Sorry for the thread hijack and good luck with whatever you decide, but it better have half doors! ;)
