I have a theory, all be it, a bit of a stretch. Maybe he’s uncomfortable being that close to the door with that little ratchet they give you and possibly hit the door with it, this would enable you to stay away while loosening the bolts? That’s all I got.....:)
One may weigh in at 350 to 400 pounds and simply cant get close enough to use the jeep tool. Ok,Im sorry that wasnt nice.

Added Alexa to the Jeep, nice to not have to look at the phone to play music while driving

Possibly.

I don't know about you guys but I use this for almost everything on the Jeep and I don't have any issues with hitting the body...

Let's ask this question...why do YOU think you need it?

Let's review taking the doors off. You take off the two bolts on the outside (if they're not already out)
Open the door, remove the panel, disconnect the wiring and take the keeper off the hook - now the door swings out wider
Remove the bolt on the inside of the door
Lift the door off

So the question myself and others have is, why would you need that tool to remove the doors? See the video below...

Because if you use a power tool to removed the bolts rather than the manual tool provided, you can unscrew the bolts in a fraction of the time it takes to use the manual tool. Also, the risk of scratching your door is less. I don't know about you but taking off those bolts is a nervous affair for me as I am always afraid I am going to scratch something when the manual tool slips. Can't just use a drill because it's too fat and the spinning barrel can brushes up against you door scratching or putting wheel mark (ask me how I know). So this simple $12.99 flex attachment for your drill l (which most of us already own) eliminates all of that. "Well just leave the bolts out", sorry but I want every part of my 50k vehicle to remain on it. Somehow, leaving parts off just does not seem right to me.

Do whatever you feel comfortable with. Those torx bolts bite well and pretty deep. I haven't had it skip on the door but I can see your concern. I leave them off but I have pin cover guides installed in their place. I'll put them back on in the winter

Over the weekend.
MotoBilt rear bumper to match my front bumper
MotoBilt rocker guards to replace the factory Rubicon rails.

The paint did not come out as good as I'd have liked bc of the humidity. I might take them off later and repaint them.

I added D44's with Elockers, FAD, 4:1 Transfer case, LED Lights, 8.4 infotainment screen, and Rock Rails.
OK, maybe I actually traded in my Sport for a Rubi...but it's still Mojito! and I kept the wheels!

2018 JL Unlimited Rubicon
My Rubicon came with a gas cap cover, but I wanted something a little different. When I contacted Drop Zone Offroad about making a gas cap from my own weird design, I wasn't sure if it would turn out. They exceeded my expectations BY A MILE.

This little cutie is powder coated metal, completely one of a kind, AND it cost less than the boring factory option. I cannot say enough about how thrilled I am.
