    Review & Install Video

    I'm Ryan from extremeterrain.com and this my review and installation of the Rugged Ridge Tube Doors fitting all 1997 to 2006 TJs. Today, we're gonna talk through the installation of these tube doors which is a very simple one out of three wrenches. You're gonna be able to get these doors installed on your Jeep in about an hour the first time and it'll be even quicker the second time after you have all of the adjustments already done, but we'll talk a little bit more about the install in just a second. We're also gonna talk about the construction and talk through a few of the features of these doors. One of the benefits to owning a Wrangler is the fact that you can take the doors off and drive around. So if you like that open-air driving experience, however, you want it to be a little bit more secure in your Jeep, you wanna have something to hold onto, maybe you have kids or other passengers that just feel a little bit more secure with some type of door, then a tube door is a good option. You get both the open air driving experience but you have a little bit more of that security. On top of that, a lot of people just like the way a tube door looks, it definitely gives your Jeep that more safari style, and a lot of people really do enjoy that. On top of that, having the doors off when you're on the trail gives you the ability to lean out a little bit further, check our your line, see exactly what that front driver's side tire is about to drive over, so the tube door, because it does have this dip in it, very similar to a half door, still gives you the ability to see outside the door, but again, gives you a little bit more of that secure feeling. I really like these doors in particular because I think they're well built, the latch is adjustable so you're gonna make sure that it latches properly, it does come with these locking latches. It'll allow you to use a factory mirror and a few other features that I really do like especially for the cost of these. So as for the construction, these are made from inch-and-a-half round tubing that is covered in a textured black powder-coat finish. Much like a lot of other Rugged Ridge products, the finish on this is pretty nice. It's designed to match a lot of other aftermarket parts and those factory black plastic accents on your TJ, so these doors are going to look pretty good. Now, as far as features go, again, this does have an adjustable and locking latch that comes on it. Now, some of you might be saying, "Why do I need to latch the doors? Obviously, it's a tube door, somebody can just reach right into my Jeep anyway." Well, the point of a latch on a tube door is that without it, somebody can very easily open the door and then lift the tube door off and walk away with it. So this lock is less to keep people out of your Jeep and more to keep your tube doors on your Jeep when it's parked and you're not close to it. Now, on top of the locking latch, this also does have this plate that is pre-drilled and tapped for you to be able to run a factory mirror or a factory-style mirror. So whether you take the mirrors off of your half doors or your full doors and put it on your tube doors in the summer time, or you pick up a second set of mirrors, this will accept a factory mirror. Now, that's a really nice feature, the factory mirror is good and solid, it's large, it's adjustable, some of the other tube doors on the market don't allow you to run a factory-style mirror so you're stuck with a smaller safari-style mirror. I definitely prefer this over that. This also has a spot for a factory-style limiting strap and it does come with the limiting strap. This door will drop directly onto your factory hinges, again, making install very easy and while this is a no-drill installation rugged Ridge does include an anti-rattle bump stop for you that will require you to drill into your new tube door, but it's optional only if you want to install it. And essentially, what it does is just give a little bit of additional pressure when you close the door to keep the latch from rattling. So if you do end up with a little bit of noise and it does bother you, you will have that anti-rattle bump stop that you can install but you will have to drill a hole. As for installation, again, a very simple one out of three wrench installation. The first time might take you about an hour, probably a little less, and the second time will be even quicker. All you need to do is first remove your factory doors from your TJ. In order to do that, you'll have to remove the two nuts that are on the bottom of the hinge pins if you still have them installed. Then simply uninstall the limiting strap from the inside and then lift the door off. If you've never had your doors off before it can be a little bit difficult the first time. You'll have to work the door back and forth while lifting it, it may help to have an extra set of hands around. I've even seen people use a floor jack or another jack on the bottom of the door to help pop it loose. Of course, you have to be very careful because when the door does pop loose, it's gonna fall, so make sure you have a good grip on it, you don't want to damage your factory doors. Once you have those factory doors off, you can clean up the hinge pins then lubricate them to make taking the doors off and putting them back on a lot easier the next time. Once you do have those factory doors off, it's a simple matter of dropping these doors into the factory hinges and you can use the limiting nuts if you choose to. If not, just drop the doors on if you don't think someone's gonna take your door, if it's just a temporary install, just drop them right in place. Now, you will want to attach your limiting strap right away so that the door doesn't swing open which can damage your Jeep. After that, you'll install your mirror, either uninstall it from the factory door or get a second set of mirrors to install on your tube doors. And then you'll wanna loosen up your latch the first time you're installing these and close the door, then re-tighten the latch. That's going to insure that the latch is lined up properly and you're not going to damage it. And then you're really finished. If you do decide to install that anti-rattle bump stop, again, the instructions are very clear on exactly where to drill the hole in your tube door, it does come with self-tapping screws and that rubber bump stop, so that's another part of the installation that you can do if you choose that's also very easy and it's something that you only have to do one time. Again, the second time around you're not gonna have to readjust, you're not gonna have to reinstall that bump stop. You just lift the door off, put your factory doors back on and vice versa. This is a very quick and easy install that anybody can do. As I said at the beginning, I do think that these doors are very fairly priced for what you get. There are other doors on the market that are less expensive that won't accept a factory mirror, that don't have a locking latch, that just aren't quite as well built and don't fit as well. So, in my opinion, if I'm gonna get a tube door, I want one that has these features and I would be willing to spend a little bit ore for it. Now, if you're okay not having those features, you can certainly save some money and go with one of those other brands on the market. Olympic, for instance, makes a tube door that does have a fewer features but you're also going to save a little bit of money, so that option is out there as well. So if you like that open-air driving experience that you get from driving without your doors on but you want a little bit more of a secure feeling and you wanna make sure that your passengers stay in your Jeep, a set of tube doors could be a great option for you, or maybe you just like the look. Either way, this is a tube door that has a lot of features and is very fairly priced. So that's my review of the Rugged Ridge Tube Doors fitting all 1997 to 2006 TJs that you can find here at extremeterrain.com.

    Construction. Rugged Ridge's tubular doors give you the feeling of having no doors with the security of actually having them. These doors are crafted from 1.5 inch diameter steel tubing and a black textured powder coat finish for durability and stylish looks.

        Do these doors have brackets that will press the dome light switch in so my interior lights will go out when doors are shut?

        • The Rugged Ridge Tube Doors will depress the dome light switch to prevent the interior lights coming on when the doors are in use and closed.

        The Q/A and description is confusing. Are the hinges welded on, or do they have to be bolted on? Can the doors be opened from the inside of the door? is there a set of bottom nuts included to secure the hinge pins?

        What mirrors do you suggest purchasing with these tube doors?

        • The factory mirrors will work with these doors.

            Hinge design needs improvement

            Out of the box it took less than ten minutes per door to install. But after use if any one leaned on the door when open the hinge will bend slightly and than the latch will not close. I fixed the problem by welding the upper hinge pin to the tube so the adjusting tab can not be bent out. Problem solved

            Not as expected

            The door hinges were not attached. They came separately in the box for attachment with nuts and bolts. That took longer than expected and the space for holding the nuts was quite small. Also, the name on the logo plate was misspelled. It says "Rugge Ridge" rather than "Rugged Ridge." That's no biggie, but it's kinda weird. Mostly, the doors were OK.

            Tube Doors

            Good solid construction and easy to install.....tube lines follow the jeep body and blend in well. Doors close firmly and do not rattle when the rubber stopper has been installed. I am pleased with the quality, fit and price of these doors compared to other brands I looked at.

            It is well made and looks Great.

            It look great and is very well made. But, it needs a lot of adjustments and it does not come with spacers. My came with the driver side locking key loose and had to do same adjustments in order for the pin to lock. In order for it to close I need to push it hard. Mauricio.

            RR tube doors

            Doors look great and are a simple install. Only issue I have is the hinge on passenger side hits my snorkel only allowing for partial door opening. More of a snorkel issue than a door issue.

            Inaccurate instructions - pins too long.

            Instructions say to reuse OEM door pin nuts but the shipped pin threads are the wrong size! They are too large for the OEM nuts, but 4 extra nuts are included that work. Next the pins shipped are too long and leave gaps above and below the hinge. This means the tube doors can shift up/down in the hinge 1/4 inch /-. Disappointing instructions and fit. Took photos to show gaps.

            Summer Doors

            These look great but were annoying to install. The holes for bolting the mirrors on are off a bit and I was only able to use two of three bolts. Also have ongoing issue with door catch as the mechanism enclosure is a bit flimsy and bends causing it to misalign and not close properly until I ben it back.

            Rugged Ridge Tube Doors JW TJ

            I love the look and fit of the RR tube doors. They maintain the open feel but provide that added bit of security when you’re on the open road; my wife especially likes that factor. The overall install is easy from a technical standpoint but has one issue that prevented me from giving them a perfect Five Star review. The hinges do not come installed and basically are an easy two bolts with a washer and nut per hinge. However, the area you do this is not easy for anyone with large hands. I had a heck of a time juggling the door and hinge along with lining up the bolt with the washer and nut since my fingers barely fit into the small box on the door. Smaller handed guys might find this a non-issue. However, I did survive the install. Once the bolts are in place, they give you the flexibility to line up the doors for a great fit before snugging everything down; so, don’t let these minor details stop you from buying this excellent product.

            These went on quick and easy and love the look. The feel really solid and wouldn't hesitate to purchase again. Take a little time to fine tune the latching and spacers and they're good to go.

            BEST doors EVER !

            A MUST HAVE for Jeep Wrangler owners . It's having no door to enjoy the weather but safety when you are driving . Best quality , chunky look and lots of compliments .. we live in New England , took our hard doors off in May and kept these on all summer I just put the hard doors back on 2 weeks ago . The factory mirrors bolt right on and the doors have locks with keys ... beautiful looking and safety all around !
