I don't think Bestop has soft doors in the twill fabric yet do they? My OCD will not allow different fabric on the top and doors.

Quadratec has a large selection including mopar half doors

Northridge carries rugged ridge but I don't think they have mopar or as wide a selection - but they do have member discount :beer:

Man that's both good and bad news! Good because my wife is REALLY wanting some so it is easier for her to drive naked in the summer and still be prepared for a quick shower. (Lots a room to have fun with that sentence.:brows:) Bad because I just lost my excuse to spend the money elsewhere. :doh: I thought the "Black Diamond" was the same as the older top fabric.

:cheesy::cheesy: i am just going to leave that alone.

yea its great cause they are EXTREAMLY light. very easy to throw on. the tops are a bitch to slide into the lowers but to be honest i never really tried to make them work. i didnt like the look of the full soft door like i originally thought i would

I agree on the looks of the tops, but of I get caught in a storm they would be nice to have.

Let me ask.... It is my understanding the seal on the lower is only so/so. Do you think it would help in a quick splash of mud/water? You know, like a wake coming back at you? I understand it isn't sealed well enough to hold it back if you stay submerged. But I might be more interested in the lowers if they at least helped with a heavy splash.

i have a very little gap down at the curve by the hinges that lets some water in. im sure i just need to fit it better for it not to let any water in at all. so to answer your question yes i think they will hold up against a heavy slpash.

Zebra also makes doors for the JKU. They are a little speedy but look great.

Other than the factory half doors which are insanely expensive, the Rugged Ridge and Zebra are the only half doors I know of that aren't just a tube door.

The Zebra don't have an upper available. Not sure about the Rugged Ridge, but don't think they do. The Element, Mopar, and Bestop (soft) are the only ones that have an upper.

Savvy off road also makes a nice looking aluminum half door. No uppers are available for them. I just like the way they look.

I had the strike force doors and was mixed on them. I hated that it was taking forever for an upper option which was the main reason for me selling my set, they also needed a small piece of plastic added onto the door latch to make them not rattle which was annoying if you switch from halfs to full doors a lot like I used to do when it would rain.

Rugged Ridge has uppers which I hear fit decently well. Savvy offroad doors are probably what I will go with next, if their plans happen with uppers like I read somewhere, then itll make my decision even easier, or just go with oem halfs which would be perfect.

I'd also buy the Savvy doors in a heartbeat if they had an upper available. They just came out on JK's, look great on the TJ's.

I saw those at a show and was impressed with them. Just not sure a plastic door could take a rock hit.

Neither can a metal door! I've never seen a door take a rock very well.

I figure a metal door may dent where a plastic door would crack.

They are made of thermoplastic which is really durable.

I also have the Zebra doors and, like Hinrich, have mixed reviews on them but for different reasons. Although they look great, I have had to get two replaced and the latches repaired. They have all busted after some use.

Also, being that they are thermaplastic, they did shrink on me. I was in Lake Arrowhead one time and because it got so cold at night, the doors shrunk and I could not get them open. We had to end up crawling through the window Dukes of Hazard style.

Those Savvy doors look nice.

I gave Savvy a call, and the gentleman I spoke with said they want to show a half door with top at Easter Jeep Safari. Their current door
http://shop.savvyoffroad.com/product.sc?productId=179&categoryId=28
can't be modded to work with Rugged Ridge's soft tops
http://www.ruggedridge.com/upper-soft-door-kit-front-black-diamond-07-12-jeep-jk-wrangler.html
because "the rail is wrong". Bummer.

I want a half door for Easter Jeep Safari, and waiting to score with Savvy may not pan out, so I'm thinking of purchasing tube doors for EJS and then sell them when Savvy's doors are ready. Is there a market for slightly used tube doors (assuming I haven't ****ed them up)?

I'm sure you'd have no trouble unloading used tube doors. Get the Element doors and I'll buy them from you. :D

I could be wrong, but I don't believe the doors can be purchased complete anymore. My vague recollection is that you must order them part by part and then put them together.

In early 2012 when I was looking at half doors the stealership told me that you had to buy the door and internals seperate, then pay someone to properly set the locking mechanism and put them together. Total quote was some where in the 5k range.

They can be purchased complete or how you want them.........they are super expensive and do not come painted......they also can be purchased assembled.........I love the look but the price to me is a deal breaker........I personally plan to go with Rugged Ridge half doors.......they look pretty sweet on GCM's Beastly rig :thumb:

Shit adds up quick......before you know it you're up around $4,000 :eek:

I ran my uppers most of the weekend. While I have not taken the time to fit them perfectly they were fitted enough to do their job. They were a bit noisy, but blocked the wind on the hwy to get the family to the trail without any complaints. :thumb:

Edit: and they didn't cost anywhere near $4K.
