A huge congratulations to you !!!

Wow... awesome looking Jeep... three things I love about your configurations... I wish I knew, anyways:
  • Yellow an option for half doors Jeep
  • Interior dash in black rather than red (I don’t like the red)
  • Those awesome cream color seats
Thanks for sharing. Very relevant to me. I’m six foot tall and will have to drive 8 hours to bring it home. Hopefully I can move boxes around.

I wonder how to check that no half door components are missing. How many boxes?
6 boxes: 2x rear doors, 2x rear uppers, 2x front doors and uppers.

Some notes from the install:
  • The front uppers were in the wrong boxes.
  • The window adjustment instructions aren't clear. Effectively: turn the nut clockwise with the 8mm wrench to loosen the bolt of the post, then adjust the bolt with the 3mm hex, then tighten the nut with the wrench counter clockwise to complete the adjustment. When adjusting the bolt, turn the 3mm hex counter clockwise to bring the top of the upper closer to the frame.
  • When adjusting the upper, take care not to flex the post. If flexed too far outwards, it will make it very difficult to pull the upper off of the door.
  • The half doors are 150% worth the price. My goodness, as soon as I went for a drive with the half doors, I just knew it was the right decision to get it!

Mine is still KzT the 15th. I emailed US Customer Care to see if there is an update .. I'm slowing down I'm bothering my dealer to only once a week.

'21 2-door Wrangler Rubicon (ordered 4/3/21)
Just seeing kfoo's pics just makes the waiting even worse. My patience is wearing thin. Finally got my window sticker from Crypto early on Sunday, 5/23/21 and my dealer says it should arrive at the rail yard by 6/11/21 and at the dealer a couple of days later. We'll see.

I wonder if I did a build on the jeep configurator and then did a search dealers for my build - maybe it will find "my jeep" and it will show in transit. Another thing to do while I wait...

Thanks for boxes info.

Brain overload with install details, but saved for later.

Looks great! Is that Nacho or Hellayella?
Thanks! It's HellaYella!

I was debating between HellaYella and nacho actually, but I didn't like the nacho in person.

I chose to wait until I sold my car before ordering since I wasn't sure if I'd be able to get the money I wanted and would have gotten gecko if it took even longer.

It'll totally be worth the wait! Just make sure not to rush things and check the fuses! 😁

I got my build sheet today. Seems sometimes this means shipping is days away. Sometimes it means it's weeks away. Here's hoping for the shorter window!

My Jeep has been built and is now "pending installation of additional equipment", AKA purgatory.

How is everyone else's orders progressing?

Looking.....
Just curious, are you able to order half doors with the Skyroof? edit: just tried to search based on that, and at least none in inventory near me. If you can't order it that way, does anyone know if they will fit with a Skyroof?

Are the half doors able to be ordered separately from the Jeep purchase?

Have not tried, but I believe you can. The 392 when debuted had both options. That would be one expensive Jeep though! Adding 9k or so just in 2 options!!!

No doubt, but just curious if they will work. I want half doors, my wife wants a sky roof. Heck, it may be heavy, but can't the skyroof be removed similar to a hard top removal? My thought was sky roof with full doors, and half doors with no roof. Sounds perfect!

My ordered Jeep has half doors & the power top.

Tomorrow is the big day for me however it is sitting in my garage tonight already. I would love to show a picture with the half doors on but technically they're still in the back. Just in case the deal falls through. I'm just posting a picture of how much room the two door dual door owners have. I'll have some more pictures once it's actually mine. Somewhere back there better be a small box of parts of the cold air intake ..😆
