Took the doors off for a drive today... As I was in the middle of putting the doors back on (no garage) the wrench driver broke apart!

Does anyone know how much for a new set?

Just go take it to the dealer, it's still under warranty and I believe they will just give you a new one.

like mentioned already, just don’t put the door hinge post bolts back in. I never had a problem with them out for year after years being out even through winters. Just grease the post. With all the Jeeps I have had, I pull those and never put them back. It’s way faster to pull the doors that way.

i'm not surprise that it fell apart. they seemed to be fair quality but with questionable performance. you might be able to get a replacement under warranty.

Lowe’s carries Kobalt brand ratchets. Look carefully at the packaging. Some are Chinese junk, but some are made in Taiwan, and they still carry the old “Craftsman” warranty.
