Why Would I Take Apart My Jeep?

Jeep vehicles are designed to be enjoyed, which is why there are so many options for customization. Not only can you choose from tons of models, packages, and accessories, but you can also modify your Jeep at home. 

Outdoor enthusiasts often take off the doors of their Jeeps in order to connect with the elements, enjoying the fresh air and sunshine on an epic journey. However, another practical reason to take apart a Jeep is due to fuel economy. The lighter your vehicle, the better its efficiency both on- and off-road!

How To Remove the Jeep Wrangler Doors

Removing your Jeep Wrangler doors takes some time and effort, but most Normal and Champaign drivers find the task doable at home. It’s important to have all your tools in place, as well as a large space to work comfortably. Here’s how to take the doors off a Jeep: 

  • Fold down the side mirrors and roll down the windows to protect the glass.
  • Disconnect any power cables. You’ll either remove the footwell under your dashboard or by the B-pillar. After taking off the clips, the power cables should pop off easily.
  • Remove the door straps by gently lifting them off the hooks.
  • Remove the bolt from the door hinges. 
  • Slide the door off and away. Repeat these steps with the remaining doors.
  • Finally, disable the door alarm. Detach the negative lead from the battery and put it aside. Remove the fuse box cover and remove the “Door Jam Defeat” fuse. Reconnect the negative lead to the battery.
  • Store the doors in a safe and dry place, and lubricate the hinges to make the process even easier next time.

How to Take a Top Off a Jeep

Now you know how to remove your Jeep Wrangler doors, but how to take a top off a Jeep is a different story. Removing the roof is a much more complicated process that requires a great deal of space. It’s difficult to maneuver the top off the car without risking damage, so it’s best to leave this more labor-intensive job to the professionals. We recommend contacting our service center to learn more about your options!
