Ok, so maybe an odd question but I love the doors off, and im always thinking about inclimate weather and being able to put them on quickly if it turns torrential.

Is there anyone or how many of you are just hanging the door without "bolting" it on with the torx bolt? Seems to me like closing the door would keep it in place to not fall off when you go over a bump and I cannot believe nothing came up on a search?

What am I missing to think this wouldn't work (aside from not the safest in an accident (but then again no doors in an accident is probably very close) Thoughts?

I drove my JK without the bolts for 9 years and took them off my JL the first day I had her and they will probably never go back on.

Nothing to worry about

What did you do with the door check lever? Did you leave unbolted as well, and any scratching issues or anything?

The door check lever is in the door. Just unbolt it and put the bolt back in the hole and tighten it up.or push the arm back in the door and dont use it.

I had the bolts out of my JK from a few days after purchase until I sold it... my incoming JL will be the same. No need to have bolts in except it “may” prevent a CASUAL criminal from taking your doors on an unlocked Jeep. Even the nearly complete fools out there will bring a torx but if they are door hunting and now Jeep even labels it so they won’t get the size wrong

My front ones are out, no problem unless you turn it upside down with the door open. But by then you're going to have all kinds of problems.
That would be a bad, BAD day! I never had them in my '07

I will not be participating in this forum as of 8/31/2018. It's been a fun ride, but it's time to move on. Take care. - Dustin

But if you think about it, that should be the correct title. Just sayin. :giggle:

I leave the nuts off and have pushed the door checks in the door for summer. My doors are off more than they are on. I will reconnect the door checks in the winter.

So essentially, you leave your nuts at home?
