    Hinge pin guides need removed each use?

    I purchased hinge pin guides/extensions from a reputable website and installed. They do make putting the doors on much easier without bashing something. See below:

    https://www.quadratec.com/p/quadrate...ep-wrangler-jk

    I had the jeep in for maintenance today. A tech told me they are a great idea but i should always remove them and install the factory bolts. If i dont the door will sag and start leaking.

    He is a jeep guy and i want to believe him. But if i have to put them on and take them off each time i cycle the doors I'm going to stop using them...

    I'm just looking for more opinions. Do i need to remove hinge guides each time i put doors on? Thanks for your advice!

    What would those possibly have anything to do with the door sagging? I disagree with him

    Not a chance. They don’t change where the door sits at all.

    I haven’t put the nuts back on my doors in 4-5 years. No issues yet at least.

    Thanks all for the replys!

    I'm assuming the rationale is if the nut isn't on the bottom to sinch it down and square the hinge axis up it will "woller out" the surfaces... jostle and usage.

    I can understand how it occurs... I try to give it some lube occasionally...

    Probably dicking me on potential warranty claims. Like i got today...

    Most people never put the bolts back on once they take the doors off the first or second time

    I would be sure to avoid that clown at all costs in the future. Nonsense.

    I seriously have no idea where the door bolts are for my wife's Jeep. Took them off and forgot about them.

    Cycling the doors on and off? If it’s garage kept pull the doors for the summer and leave them off.
    I pull my doors once a year.

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.
