How To Remove the Doors on a Jeep

When you’re beginning to remove the doors on your Jeep, your main goal is to protect the window glass. Just be cautious with everything you’re doing, and you should be good to go off the beaten path around New Lenox with your Jeep doors removed in no time. With that being said, here’s how to take off the doors on your Jeep Wrangler:

  1. Fold in your side mirrors & roll down the windows.
  2. Remove the black safety strip inside your Wrangler door jambs.
  3. If applicable, unplug the connectors and wiring on each door.
  4. Using the Torx bit and tools from your Jeep tool kit, begin removing the door bolts.
  5. Carefully begin lifting up the door off of its hinges. If it doesn’t seem to budge, you can lightly tap the bottom of the door with a rubber mallet to loosen it.
  6. The door should now be removed! Repeat the steps above for each individual door you wish to take off and store them in a safe place.


Jeep Doors Off Safety

Before heading out on your excursions, you’re likely wondering about Jeep doors off safety. With the doors removed, your Jeep Wrangler technically has less safety than if it were to have its doors on. However, your Jeep Wrangler should still remain relatively safe when you’re driving with your doors off. There are plenty of advanced safety features that have been equipped on your Wrangler to keep you and your passengers secure and protected.

How to Take a Top Off a Jeep

Now that we’ve touched on plenty of tips for taking Jeep doors off, do you also want to take the top off your Jeep? While it is possible to do it yourself, we suggest leaving this job to one of our service specialists. Removing the top from a Jeep Wrangler can result in permanent damage, so it’s best to have our professionals assist.
