REALLY helps to have a second person helping out the way I do it, but it can be done by one person if you put a jackstand under the door. When you open up the door, you should notice that there are 4 bolts holding the door to the Jeep. These should be 10mm. Take those out while your buddy holds the door. Now you have the electrical harness. There's a tiny torx screw in there that you have to unscrew and then you can pull the harness out. That part is kind of a PITA. Now your dome lights are going to be on all the time. Get a small flat head screwdriver and pop out the door switch pins. Pull the wiring out a little bit and there's a harness you can unplug. The Jeep now thinks the doors are shut and your dome lights go off.

If you're by yourself, undo the wireing harness first, then break the 10mm bolts loose. And I use a cordless drill with the 10mm on it to run the bolts out while I hold the door. I can put them on and off by myself.

Yep, I'm thinking about taking my front two doors off during the summer also. How long does this whole process take?

Any idea of the legality of that? If you've got a seatbelt on, are the doors pretty much 'optional'? Takes the 460 a/c technique a bit further.. :grin:

Never had a problem and I've driven by and talked to a few cops w/ the doors off. Really depends on your state / city.

I hooked up some ghetto mirror on the driver side to be legal in CO. Also, it's nice to have at least something to see what's behind me.
