How to Take the Doors off Your Jeep Wrangler


Drivers looking for adventure around Calgary often opt for a Jeep Wrangler as their ideal vehicle of choice. The Wrangler boasts customizable parts so you can enhance your overall driving experience and tailor it to your tastes.

One of the ways you can customize your Wrangler is by removing its doors so you can enjoy the fresh air on your next off-roading trip. Learn how to remove the doors from your Jeep below.

How To Remove the Doors on a Jeep: Step-By-Step Guide

Here’s a step-by-step guide for removing the doors of your Jeep Wrangler.

  • If your model has windows, bring them down to protect the glass
  • Removing the footwell under your dashboard or by the b-pillar to disconnect any cables. Remove the clip that attaches it to pop it off
  • Gently lift the door straps off the hooks
  • Remove the bolt from the door hinges
  • Gently slide the doors off and away one by one

Now you’re ready to enjoy a doorless ride around Medicine Hat and beyond. Of course, you may want to put your doors back on for winter or other hazardous weather, so be sure to store the doors in a safe and dry place. It’s also a good idea to lube the door hinges to make it easier to slide the doors on or off your Wrangler the next time.
