How to Remove the Doors on a Jeep

First, you’ll want to fold down the side mirrors, then roll the windows down to keep the glass from breaking. Then, you’ll want to take the following steps:

  • Detach any power cables by taking off the footwell under the dash or next to the b-pillar.
  • Gently lift the door straps off the hook to remove them.
  • Remove the bolt from the door hinges, then slide the door off and away from the frame.
  • Repeat the steps above with the rest of the doors.
  • To disable the door alarm, detach the negative lead from the battery and set it aside and away from the terminal.
  • Next, you’ll want to remove the fuse box cover and look at the fuse diagram on the bottom. Find the Door Jam Defeat fuse and take it out with a pair of small pliers.
  • Lastly, reattach the negative lead to the battery.

Afterward, you can hit the trails without the hindrance of doors. Once you take them off, though, make sure you keep them in a dry place. You may want to also lube the door hinges, so you’ll have an easier time taking them off next time.
