2018 Jeep Wrangler crossing stream

San Leandro drivers love the Jeep Wrangler for many reasons, but its customization options, in particular, have won it plenty of praise! With this in mind, you may be asking yourself the question, “How to take the doors off a Jeep?” You’ll be glad to know it’s a pretty simple process! Simply follow our step-by-step guide below to be on your way to soaking up the warm summer sun in Walnut Creek.

How To Remove the Doors on a Jeep

Learning how to take apart a Jeep might seem too difficult to learn at first, but when you follow our simple guide down below, you’ll see that it’s nothing to be afraid of. Before you get started, you’ll first have to roll down your windows to protect the glass. Then, you’re ready for the next steps:

  • Disconnect all power cables. This can be done by removing the footwell, which usually resides under your dashboard, but may also be found by the b-pillar. All you need to do is remove the clip that attaches the footwell, and it should pop right off.
  • Gently lift the door straps off the hooks.
  • Take the bolt out of the door hinges, then carefully slide the door off and away.

That’s it! You’re now prepared to take an airy ride around Fremont. Before you head out, though, just be sure you stow your doors away in a safe, dry area. If you had some trouble sliding the doors off their hinges, a little lubricant will do the trick when you remove your doors again in the future.

Why Take the Doors Off a Wrangler?

There are a few reasons Jeep Wranglers have removable doors. Most drivers do so because they want to feel the rush of the open air while cruising around the city or off-roading near Berkeley. Other drivers have financial reasons for taking the doors off their Jeep, as doing so can help with the overall fuel consumption and the weight of the Wrangler.

How to Take a Top Off a Jeep

If you’ve come this far, you’re probably also wondering how to take the top off your Jeep! This will give you a truly immersive experience in your Wrangler, allowing you to feel one with the elements around you. However, most Jeep experts will tell you that, tempting as it may be to try it on your own, you’re better off entrusting a certified Jeep service department to remove your Jeep’s top. When you attempt to remove it on your own, you risk permanently damaging the top because it’s more difficult and awkward to maneuver than the doors.
