Whether you're planning a bit of off-roading or cruising the Kaukauna streets, a new or used Jeep Wrangler is always ready for your next adventure. With its legendary capability and rugged Jeep styling, Wrangler makes conquering the road (or the trails) a breeze.

To help you feel the breeze on your Green Bay adventures, you might be wondering how to remove the doors on your very own Jeep Wrangler. Take a look at our step-by-step guide to taking the doors off yours below! 

How to Take the Doors off Your Jeep Wrangler

The Jeep Wrangler is one of the only SUVs on Appleton roads that lets you take the doors off. Most new crossovers & SUVs like the Toyota 4Runner and even the Jeep Grand Cherokee have fixed doors. But the Wrangler lets daring drivers take things into their own hands.

Ready to turn everyday driving into a riveting experience? Here's how to take the doors off a Jeep Wrangler! 

  • First, find the tools Jeep provides for removing your doors: a fold-out instruction card and a small ratchet with Torx 40 and 50 attachments. If you don't have access to these, contact our parts center. Then, you're ready to begin the door removal process. 
  • Fold the side mirrors in to prevent damage to the mirrors when your Wrangler doors are being stored.
  • Roll the windows down to protect the window within the door frame to prevent accidental breakage.
  • Remove the black safety strap on the inside of the door.
  • Unplug the pigtail wiring connection (on Wranglers with power windows and power locks).
  • Locate and remove the two bolts on the exterior of the door that hold the door in place. Be careful not to damage the body-color paint on the bolts.
  • Reaching through the open window, lift the door straight up to disconnect from the vehicle.
  • Carefully store your doors on a blanket, interior-side-down, or hang them in your garage.

Now that you've successfully learned how to take doors off your Jeep and have gone through the process, you can take in even more fresh air on your Oshkosh journeys and drive your Wrangler the way you want.

Why Take the Doors off My Jeep Wrangler?

Maybe you already know how to take the doors off your Jeep Wrangler or Gladiator but aren't sure if it's a good idea. Truthfully, taking the doors off a Wrangler isn't for everyone -- even die-hard Wrangler fans. Still, there's nothing quite like the exhilarating feeling you get while driving in a Wrangler with the doors off, and you won't know how it feels until you try it! 

Seeing all the way to the ground and watching the trails and yellow dotted lines blur past you as you drive can really make you feel alive. As an added bonus to the fully-immersed feeling you get when you drive doorless around Neenah, removing the doors on your Wrangler can help with fuel economy. Reducing the total weight of your Jeep helps you save on fuel consumption which can help you feel even more connected to the nature you're immersed in.

How to Customize a Wrangler Your Way

In addition to removable doors, the Jeep Wrangler offers three different roof options to catch more air from above:

  • A removable available Freedom Top hardtop
  • An easy-to-lower standard Sunrider soft top
  • An available Sky One-Touch Power Top
