How to Take the Doors off Your Jeep Wrangler: A Step-by-Step Guide

When you’re looking for an adventurous vehicle to buy in Orland Park or Mokena, place your attention on the 2019 Jeep Wrangler. The Wrangler is a formidable off-road vehicle that offers drivers with the performance capabilities they need, the style they want, and the customization options they may not have even known they had. Let the experts at Bettenhausen CDJR walk you through how to take apart Jeep Wrangler parts, including the doors and top.

How To Remove the Doors on a Jeep

If you want to know how to take the doors off a Jeep Wrangler, then you’ve come to the right place! First off, before you do anything else, you’ll want to bring down your Wrangler’s windows so you can protect the glass. After that, follow these simple steps to take apart Jeep Wrangler doors:

  • Remove the footwell under your Wrangler’s dashboard or by the b-pillar and disconnect any power cables.
  • Next, gently lift the door straps off of the hooks.
  • Finally, remove the bolt from the vehicle’s door hinges and carefully slide the door off and away.

Before you go and drive around New Lenox without your Wrangler’s doors attached, be sure to store the doors in a safe place. If you want an even easier time executing these steps the next time, be sure to lubricate the hinges so the doors slide off more easily.

Why Would I Take the Doors off my Wrangler?

One reason why you would want to take off your Wrangler’s doors is to save on gas consumption. By taking off the doors, you’re removing weight from the vehicle, which helps with fuel economy. Another reason why you would want to remove them is for a more immersive off-road driving experience. When the doors are off, you feel closer to your surroundings when off-roading, making the experience even more enjoyable!
