Tube Doors for Clampy

Two wrenches and a can of spray paint was all we needed to give Clampy retro-air conditioning. We're constantly on the lookout for simple upgrades and this was about as easy as it gets. We woke up at 6 a.m., and by 7 we had two new tube doors from Shaffer's Off-Road on our '86 rust-Yota, affectionately known as Clampy.

If you were to discuss 4x4s with Editor Rick Pw, you would quickly learn that such vehicles should not have doors, a roof, or a windshield that doesn't fold down. But, we don't own a Jeep, we own Clampy, and we also wanted something to keep our friends out of the cab at the next round of dirt lot demolition derby. Plus, by going to tube doors we get better ventilation (one of our primo '86 electric windows wouldn't go down anymore) and better visibility. Those of you living in a cold, rainy part of the country may think you have an excuse to keep your full doors, but after seeing the damage that most trail rigs with full cabs encounter, we would rather run tube doors that can take the abuse versus door skins that crumple.
