    what do you do with your doors?

    Random topic but I was curious how eveyrone stores their doors when they are removed. They can be a pain to find a place for when they are off especially when you have a 4 door. I have noticed its a lot easier with the mirrors relocated to the body. I do this all the time and was curious, does anyone else forget to put the door bolts back in when they put them back on?

    I lean my doors against the wall in the garage. Once removed I never re-install the door nuts.

    I also store them in the garage against the wall. I should find a better spot for them though as the doors are always off. I have owned my jeep for 4.5 months and the doors and top were off for about 3.5 of those months.

    we store our doors inside our den, they just kinda become part of the furniture
    as far as the nuts go, we just leave them off like robar.

    At home on a towel or something soft leaning against the wall, or in the living room till the parentals get annoyed. While here in Arizona for class, in my apartment they just kinda take up my bedroom but now that our deck is cleaned off most likely there once it gets warm enough to take em off again. And yea what WOL and Robar said, Once the bolts were taken off, never put them back on, they are in a zip lock bag in my storage bin.

    This is where I store my doors. Currently storing my tube doors as my hard doors are on. As far as the bolts I just thread them on the bottom of the door posts when storing them.

    Very do-it-yourself hangars and shelves. Probably cost me no more than $15 to make.

    Here is a pic of the rack I built in the garage with doors from my 2011 on it. Works great and cost about $50 to build.

    My doors get schlepped up to our 2nd floor apt and clutter up the living room.... My wife has gotten used to it.. My door nuts have been off for over 3yrs since first door removal. Never looked back.
    I was gonna get brackets to hang them, but I have Window guards and won't work.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
