Can you open it? Do you have a service door to get into the garage?

You can still open and close the door, it's just going to be REALLY heavy.

I just did mine a few weeks ago. Make sure the door is up when you adjust the pulleys and be careful when tensioning the spring, it can come back and bite your ass. :)

Relevance!!!! Haaaaaaaaa! You want relevance I will give you relevance! The relevance of my jeep being stuck in my garage without the top and doors means I wanted to gain peoples attention when they in the least wanted to give it. Matter of fact I probably annoyed you to the point you had to make a post to ASK what was relevant about my jeep being topless and door less in broken garage. Man can I type fast today ........I think 4 monsters in a 3 hr period is nto goood

X2 unless your door is made of 1/4" plate. Christ, I installed my door myself, each section probably only weighs 30lbs.
