ive had enough of these crappy doors...

my front and rear passenger side door panels have been cracked, the front is barely usable. ive noticed its a common problem with these POSs and apparently Jeep/Chrysler doesnt want to pony up and fix the problem right. its probably gonna take somebody dying and getting trapped then hitting them with a wrongful death lawsuit before they dix it. in the meantime, i dont see paying 600 a door logical. after calling several salvage yards i found one that had both front and rear passenger doors....they only wanted 25 each. granted they arent the same color but thats why they make spraypaint.

$25 door panel

to remove assembly i carefully drilled out the melted tabs and it pops right off.


since i have a limited i had to remove my chrome handle and swap it over. just pull the pin up and it all falls apart.


thats all i have so far, the paint i had was a shade light so im gonna go buy some more and finish up over the weekend. ill post more pics of the finished product.

Re: ive had enough of these crappy doors...

closest i could come to matching my tan interior was the flat camo tan, its still a teenie tiny bit lighter

assembled and painted

backside showing how its attached, i used screws and plastic bond i got at lowes

all done.


the only thing i dont like, is 3 of the screws i used were too long, they didnt go thru the door panel but discolored it in 3 very small placed. no big deal after i touched it up with paint. im in this for $30, so eat a dick jeep.
