Default Custom Made Cherokee soft doors !!! new pics up

Here is a pic of the Derailed Motorsports Cherokee soft doors. We built the front doors about 2 years ago for this customer and now he had us build the rear doors. I will get some better pics before it leaves the shop.

The fronts have been on his jeep for almost 2 years and he said they work great. They butt right up to the door seals so they stay pretty tight and dry

What does the inside look like? If they were a tube door with removable soft panels it would be awesome.

the frames are just made of 3/8 bar like any other soft door. jeepy left today headed back to pennsylvania.

I do like the idea of a tube door with a drop on skin. But this set was to try and keep it as air tight as possible. so the frames hit the door seal 100%

So, you don't think they could be made to fit "airtight" wrapped around tube doors? I think there could be a market for them. Lot of of guys like me that run without doors from May to November and park it in the garage everytime it rains.

Saw you the other day pulling into the gas station with that on the trailer. Those doors look really good.

Alot. I dont remember exactly what we charged. But the time and labor we had into them made it a tuff sell for us to try and market and sell them. Im sure with enough demand we could have developed a better process to manufactur them. Thanks for the 3yr bump. I forgot about these
