There is a reason that only Jeeps have easily removable doors. This reason is because no vehicle can achieve the level of normalcy that a Jeep can when the doors are removed. It just looks awkward like that. If you want to remove your doors, you bought the wrong vehicle. The only reason for no doors is a dedicated trail/rock rig in which quick escape in the event of disaster is warranted, and/or the lack of doors helps with sight. Your truck is a DD, and in most states, lack of doors is illegal.

Thank you... I am going to put them on after the weekend. Its been one day and I already have wayy to much attention. It was fun and it will be a nice weekend so ill spend it with no doors. I found the fuse I blew radio and dome work but I didn't put the fuse in cause I didn't want to burn the battery cause the dome won't turn off without shut doors.

Its fun n all buy way too much attention...

Half doors would be sick but I can't fab. Thank you for all the feedback.

I have a friend that works with me, pulled the doors off his 03 super and drove around that way for a week. He is planning on doing tube doors also, but he's pretty good with that stuff too. I was actually envious!

Your doors are integral to the structural rigidity of the cab.

I believe the switch for the lights and all that other stuff (e.g., "door ajar") is in the door latch, so you'll have to figure all that out if you want to drive around with some kind of substitute rig.

Nice pics though.

its better left a Jeep thing, lol but i guess it has potential if you close up the sides and put cage doors on or something... but is it very easy to put the doors back on? what if it is going to rain
