Why Would I Take Apart my Jeep?

The doors and top of the Jeep are removable to offer greater versatility. While you might want to keep your Jeep in one piece during everyday Lakewood errands, you might find that removing the doors and top gives you a more immersive experience on your outdoor journeys around Gig Harbor. You can really feel the elements and get a better view of the scenery while exploring nature. Plus, removing these pieces cuts down on weight – which can boost your fuel economy.

How to Take the Doors off a Jeep

  • Roll your windows down completely to protect the glass.
  • Remove the footwell, found under your dashboard or by the b-pillar, in order to disconnect any power cables. Remove any attached clips.
  • Lift the door straps off the hooks to remove them gently.
  • Remove the bolt from the door hinges. Slide the door away carefully.

How to Take a Top Off a Jeep

While learning how to remove the doors on a Jeep is a simple process, learning how to take a top off a Jeep is a bit more complicated since it can even lead to permanent damage when performed incorrectly! To protect both the safety of you and the integrity of your vehicle, we recommend scheduling a service with our technicians. Our team can customize your Jeep to your exact specifications, so don’t hesitate to reach out.
