Running Savvy’s aluminum trail half doors shaves 90lbs off your overall weight.

Just always remember, factory door can be a pain but when your done they will ALWAYS SELL for 600+ the mirrors are usually with them. I have 2 sets and the only way I part with them will be when it part with the vehicle. I love em and don't believe the weight is much of a factory compared to the guality. I know im old and senile

I had a set of full doors that a buddy just gave to me. Ran them the first winter I lived here and hated them so I sold them the next spring.

I put the first dent in the Jeep in the drivers door. When I got home my then wife looked at it and was like " WTF the first payment hasn't even been sent yet??"
I was like It's a Jeep it's what it's for.

Why the Genrights over the Savvys? Just curious.
They take soft uppers and have a cool bag and have actual customer service. Mainly the soft upper tho, it rains too much in WA to be without something to keep the wa out.

On the East side, just cold 🥶! I do love the Savvy trail doors! Won’t keep me warm though!
Not freezing is actually why I designed them. In JV in the winter, we get winds that cut across the track back to camp. Wind proof jackets work well for the upper half but if you run a 1/2 door, you can crank the heater up and keep the lower half not frozen. Running without any door is miserable.

The first step is admitting you have a problem. You can easily fix your problem by buying more doors.
Some of us have a real problem. I have 2 jeeps, but 4 sets of full doors and three sets of 1/2 doors. I tried to sell two sets of the full doors, but all of a sudden nobody wanted them. My guess is this last years mess we're in has slowed down buying Jeep parts. Except of course for me! 🥴

On the plus side, I'm donating one of the full door sets to a best friend. He's not in a position to buy now, but has always been there when needed. Maybe that's the way it's supposed to be!

Dang, what are the temps in JV in the winter? We rarely get high winds here. Just cold. Hardtop and doors go on and stay on till mid to late spring. Then the mornings are very cool and the afternoons warm up nice. That would be the best time for some half doors here, and through the summer. Most mornings are too cool to go doorless. I’m talking myself into a set right now!
