Hey guys. Taking off my doors for the first time. Driver side came off perfect. But my passenger door will not budge. Any suggestions? The quicker the better

Spray some lubricant in the hinges and if you have something to tap the pin underneath to help loosen it that should work!

2x4 wrapped in a towel along the bottom of the door, hit with a rubber mallet. After you get it out, liberally apply white lithium grease to all the door hinge pins

This is the top hinge pin hole. Still trying to figure out how this happened.

Doesn't look right at all. Can you clean it and take another pic, or is that galled metal?

Jeep was bought new back in 08. It was my mother's up until a year ago then I inherited it. To me it looks like it was over tightened by factory/dealer

i know she had never had the doors off because when she drove it she would drive all highway into the city to goto work. she never took them off of fear of getting stolen in the city. most she took of the jeep was the freedom tops
