Jeep Half-Doors With Benefits

Easy-to-assemble Mopar factory-style Jeep half-doors

Stuart A. BourdonPhotographer, Writer

Half-doors are a great invention. It’s not like half-doors are something new, but once you’ve had them, it’s hard to go back to full doors on your Jeep. Some people like no doors, and that’s handy at times, but doesn’t offer any protection from mud, wind, water, snow, sleet, hail, or other things falling from the sky or flying off the road surface. Half-doors can at least keep some of the outside world from mucking up your floors, seats, and you. Half-doors are also not hard to find. The aftermarket is flooded with all manner, style, and design ranging from not much more than nylon mesh with hinges to a structure of steel tubes covered in sheetmetal.

The Mopar Jeep Front Half Door Kit (P/N 82212124AB) and the Mopar Jeep Front Door Trim Panel Kit (P/N 5KE30XDVAC) are available for ’07 to ’07 Jeep Wranglers, and when fully assembled make up what are basically short and swoopy versions of the full factory doors, but with no window glass or upper frame loop to worry about. You still get the big-door amenities such as lock cylinders (a kit to match them to your Jeep’s door key is included), factory door handles, factory interior door latch and lock handles, factory interior door panels, and a kit to help reinstall the wiring harness to electrify the door operations. Follow along as we walk you through the highlights of building the Mopar Jeep half-doors and hanging them on our 2007 Jeep Wrangler JK.
