Review & Install Video
These Bestop 2-piece doors are for those of you that have a 2007 and up JK, and are looking for a soft 2-piece door that makes it a little bit easier to get your doors on and off and a little bit easier to store those doors inside of the Jeep if you wanted to pull them off in a hurry. Now, Bestop does make these for the 2-door and the 4-door JK, even though we are just talking about a front set of doors here. They do have a little bit different design from the 2-door and 4-door, so make sure you get the right ones for your Jeep. Now, this is not something that you can get from a lot of manufacturers out there. And because these are Bestop, these are going to be a very well-built, very well-fitting piece that are also going to look like your Jeep could have rolled off the assembly line with these installed. Now, like I mentioned before, the main benefit to a soft door like this is that you can put it on, you have your upper and your lower in place, everything has weather stripping Velcro. It actually seals up really, really well and it'll definitely keep the weather out. But, you can very easily pull either the top section off of the door, throw it in the back of the Jeep, or pull the whole door off in two pieces, put it in the back of the Jeep. If you do have the whole door on, you can still zipper down your window just like a factory half-door would. So, you have a lot of flexibility with these. If you have a set of painted half-doors or of course full doors, there isn't a good way to store those doors in your Jeep so that you can go drive around door-less but still have the peace of mind to know that if the weather changes you can pop them back on. And that's what this really provides. Of course, this is also going to provide you with a certain look that you can't get from no-doors, 2-doors, or 4-doors. This is really a very safari, very off-road, very rugged look that these doors will provide.This door is going to be a steel frame covered in the black diamond material which is very similar to a factory black diamond soft top that you might get on your JK either from the factory or from Bestop in the aftermarket. This door does pop right on the factory hinges, making it a very easy piece to install. It has a locking paddle handle so it will close the latch very much like a factory door will. And because you can lock them, it's gonna make it a lot harder for someone to steal these. Now, of course, it's a soft door. If somebody wants to get into your Jeep, this is not going to stop them, whether it has a lock on it or not, but this will keep somebody from being able to just open your door and lift them off the hinges and walk away with them while you're not in your Jeep. So, that's why the lock is an important piece. As it says in the title, as you can see here, this is a two-piece door, so not only are you getting the lower section, you're also getting the upper. And this does have a factory style zipper down, soft window on the top of it. So, you really have a couple of different options. You can have both of these pieces installed and still be able to zip your window down. You can have just the lower section of the door installed if you choose to and throw these either in your garage or in the back of the Jeep. I mean you have a lot of flexibility because these are very lightweight, they're very compact and you're not going to be able to scratch them up like you would scratch a paint. That's why these are really beneficial. This is a very simple one out of three wrench installation and it won't take you more than an hour the first time and even less every time after that. Now the first time, this will take a little bit more time to put together because these paddle handles, they do come unattached to the doors. It's a very easy process to get them attached, but that is something you're going to have to do. And there is a little bit of alignment to do on the doors the first time you install them as well. So, take them out of the box, you'll go ahead and bolt the paddle into each of the doors, leaving the bolts a little bit loose. Go ahead and remove your factory doors off of your Jeep by removing the retention nuts that hold them in place, of course, unclipping the limiting strap and any wire harness and set them aside in a safe place. Then you can set your lower door on your hinges. Be very careful the first time you close it. You'll wanna make sure that everything lines up and latches properly. Once it does, you can tighten down the hardware on the latch itself. And if you do have any issues, there's also an adjustment on this bottom hinge part here on the inside of the door that you can tweak to make sure everything lines up properly as well. There's also going to be a small amount of adjustment on this upper door. So, once you pop this upper door onto the lower, before you slam it shut the first time, close it carefully the first time you do it and make any adjustments that are necessary to ensure this is going to seal up properly and sit exactly how you want it to sit. Now, every time after that, when you lift these doors off, you're really just going to lift them off, set them aside, pop them right back on. No more adjustments to make. Of course, once you have the latch managed you only have to do that once. So, every time after that it's going to be an even easier installation. A pair of these doors is going to run you right around $500, a little difference in price, depending on whether you're buying them for your 2-door or for your 4-door. And these do come in a pair of doors. You're gonna get a pair of front doors. Now, depending on what other alternatives you're looking at, this may be a lot or a little. There are some 2-doors out there that are less expensive than this, also 2-doors that are exactly the same price. There are composite doors that are just half doors. There are some options when you're looking at doors. But, I think that the flexibility that you get from a 2-piece soft door like this is something you're not gonna get from a lot of the other door options out there on the market. And if you're looking to get a soft door, this is gonna give the kind of quality I would want to install on my Jeep. And I do think they're worth the cost. So, if you're looking for the flexibility of a soft door, I definitely recommend looking further at the Bestop 2-piece doors that you can find right here at extremeterrain.com.
