    The half doors can have electric locks that work with the key fobs. Youíll need the associated wire harnesses for the doors. Ask the seller if the doors have power locks. If they donít you will need to buy the parts, which arenít cheap. You will also need to have the plugs on your Jeep, which you will have if your full doors had power locks.

    I threw mine on last week when the snow was just starting to melt. Trying to "will" some warmer weather. The RR doors are pretty decent for the price, but I am on the hunt for some OEM. I didn't do the velcro and they flap pretty bad on the freeway.

    I have the Bestop Coredoors, I like them. Got them on sale and spent less than $2k for the front and rear. If you want black diamond uppers you have to order the mopar oem uppers, cost about $800. I sold my full doors for $1k.

    The front doors are angled wonky, which causes the uppers to seal right. I just got off the phone with Bestop and they are sending out new ones. Overall, I like them better than other half door options, besides the mopar half doors of course.

    Is there a gap between the doors and the middle plate? Does it fill up with crud? Leak water?

    I donít see a gap or light coming through. I havenít seen it fill up with crud or water but I also havenít done any serious water crossings with them.

    Iím not home so canít snap a picture. The middle plate has a weather stripping around it.

    Does anyone have the full listing of the parts with numbers needed to build the OEM half doors complete for a JKU?

    As in doors, inner panels, uppers, the wiring harness and whatever is needed for the power locks to work (if that is even a thing?). Thing is, I don't know if that is still missing stuff like bolts / screws / hinges / handles / etc. and I figured someone on here has probably worked up the full list before.

    Thanks!

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve 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.
