2022 Jeep Wrangler with Doors Removed

Open top driving in any vehicle is an awesome feeling to have when the summer weather is just right. Jeep Wrangler and Gladiator models are quite unique in their respective classes for being able to do just that, an ability granted them from the heritage of the original WWII-era Willys Jeep. Another ability that can be traced all the way back to the original Jeep, that is available on the Wrangler and Gladiator of today, is Jeep door removal. More than just open top driving, this is open vehicle driving, and provides an even more intense feeling of freedom. Below we’ll talk about how to drive your Jeep without doors, and how to remove said doors correctly.

How to Take the Doors off a Jeep Wrangler

Here are the basic steps to remove the doors from your Wrangler. A similar procedure will do the same for the Gladiator:

  1. Fold in your mirrors and roll down all the windows on the doors you’re removing.
  2. By your dashboard and the b-pillars, you’ll want to disconnect the power cables.
  3. You’ll also want to remove the door safety straps. This is usually done by gently lifting them off the hooks.
  4. Using your genuine Jeep accessories, begin removing the bolt from your door hinges. Contact our service center if you need the correct accessories to do this.
  5. Carefully slide the door off and away.
  6. Repeat these steps until all of the doors you want to be removed are taken off.

Make sure to grab the bottom of the doors firmly when you remove them, and have a place to set them down in your garage before you start the removal process. Enjoy your doorless driving experience in Louisville!

How to Take a Top off a Jeep Wrangler

The Wrangler models with soft tops can have the tops put down similarly to convertible cars, and the Gladiator also has an available soft top that can be rolled back. Follow the owner’s manuals to make sure you perform these simple procedures correctly, and you’ll be cruising around La Grange with the top down in no time.
