Just give us half doors period....they have been "designing" the JL for years think they would have had everything worked out and ready for sale on day 1
I agree. Generally those who put half doors are serious with their Wranglers. Those who put factory ones even more so. Having no half door option at launch is pretty weak from a strategy stand point.

Can you photoshop the bars off as well? I've always wondered how it would look like as a true convertible

Half doors are probably the most unpopular option. I’m actually surprised they offered them at all for the JL.

Most Wranglers aren't modified with Mopar parts. By your logic they'd not make any aftermarket parts.

And few aftermarket parts are available at launch.

The holes were cool...it's all about visibility.

Having said that, I hate half doors. They suck eggs. Having to unzip the window to grab a bag at the drive-thru window? No thanks. No where to rest your arm while driving? No thanks. As far as I'm concerned, either run with the doors on, or take the doors off. I've never understood the appeal of half doors and the one I drove pi$$ed me off after living with it for a day.

I would prefer doorless or tube doors, but I want half doors for these reasons:

1. I have to drive a couple of hours to get to any decent wheeling. I would prefer to not have doors off-road, but I don't want to drive several hours on the interstate with no doors. With half doors I can pull the windows at my destination and it is a decent compromise.

2. Daily driving to work doorless is a concern with frequent popup showers. I usually end up pulling the carpet out during the summer, but I would prefer not to have to do that. And if I need to go somewhere after work, wet seats are a problem. Half doors once again would be a decent compromise as I could keep the windows in the jeep for when it rains.

Functionally they are just about the same as tube doors. Like the half door better.

If you're using half doors, why would you put uppers on them? That is where your arm is supposed to go. If the weather is bad you just keep your full doors on.

Can't carry 4 full doors, pull over each time it rains, swap the half doors out, then put them back on again when it stops raining. In some parts of the world, the weather is too dynamic.

Which is why they make half uppers.
