After taking on a considerable amount of damage to both passenger side doors on Moby a couple of years back, Cindy and decided to replace them with a set of Rugged Ridge half doors. And, while we were never really been big fans of half doors before then, I can tell you that we have since totally fallen in love with them. Sure, they’re noisy, difficult to open and close the windows while driving and offer limited security but man, do they ever look awesome! Of course, this is to say nothing about the fact that they’re so much lighter than full size factory doors and are super easy to strip down when you want that open air feel. Also, when you run topless, the half doors will do a surprisingly good job of helping to keep in warmth on cold days, will make it easy to pack more gear in the back seating area and for our purposes, we can still run around stickered up as well.
With all that said, Cindy and I decided that it was finally time to hook Rubicat with a set of half doors and after carefully looking at all the options available today, we chose to pick up another set from Rugged Ridge. While the misaligned door handles are a bit unsightly, the Rugged Ridge half doors are without question the BEST aftermarket option we have seen especially being that they look the most factory both inside and out, seal up nicely when closed like factory, won’t rattle and are available with optional soft uppers. In other words, if you’re looking for a cost effective way to run a set of half doors, these are what I would recommend. Click on the link below to see my write-up:
