    Half Doors!

    I keep seeing everyone with these damn factory half doors...

    Where TF do you guys find them? I have been looking for over a year and haven't found anything near me!

    I thought I was gonna be cool and get those Bestop Core doors... Then I found out what they cost and I also hear they don't keep the weather out.

    Half Doors!

    I kept a regular eye on Craigslist, Facebook marketplace, OfferUp, and various Jeep forums. Finally a set came up locally at a price I thought was reasonable, particularly since they came with storage bags and were already wired with electric locks. I jumped on them. All in with painting and everything, they weren’t cheap. But here in SoCal I can run them all year round. I have no regrets.

    I recently saw a set of four at about half the price I paid, although they didn’t have the extras mine have and they were in Texas. I told a buddy and he was on a plane the next day to get them.

    While I love the look of the factory half doors there is no way I would get them. I already have dented doors from wheeling so I would rather have a molded door that flexes. Plus, the factory doors are way too much and still have too much weight.

    So like the core doors?

    I feel the same way about my full doors. Always worried I am going to mess them up. Normally I just remove them once I get to Moab/Sand Hollow/etc. I would rather have something I can put a soft upper on and leave the full doors at home.

    Actually they are remarkably light, at least compared to factory full doors. But yeah, you’d still want to go doorless if you’re wheeling in tight quarters.

    The rugged ridge doors are another option. They’re plastic, paintable, and look pretty decent. I was close to going that route, but knew I’d eventually regret not going OEM.

    The ones I plan on purchasing this coming year are strike force zebra half doors. Apparently they just finished their rear uppers and will be excepting preorders soon.

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.
