debating if I should pull the doors on honeybadger. might be kinda cool. I will just worry about some douche bag stealing my stereo system out of it. I doubt that would happen around here, as most people (im one of them) pack. thinking it would be awesome tho!

heres a pic of honeybadger with doors. I gotta rebuild the driver side door anyway.

I'd do it for the summer maybe. Though if it rains a bunch I would either want it in a garage or covered. Don't help facilitate the rust!

Good point if you did take them off it would be only a sunny day car! kinda like a motorcycle.

Or any other Jeep or Land Cruiser type vehicle with removable doors. Image

I say go for it, but check your local rules/regulations first. Here in BC, the MVA (Motor Vehicle Act) clearly states that if a vehicle was manufactured with doors, it MUST have doors equipped (which means only Jeep CJ series is legally exempt, but the city cops will still give you a ticket for no doors, just means you can fight it in court if you want). It then defines a "door" as moving freely, with a working latch that secures the door to the vehicle - could be a chunk of angle iron with a bolt to hold it securely shut, or as one guy did, a large bicycle cable. :lmao:

not worried about rain/rust here. I live in the high desert of eastern Oregon. from april till November, we don't really get any measurable amount of rain. and the car has no rust to start with, so that is fine. im pretty sure its fine doorless here, as I see xj's running around like that a lot. will see if I can find it for sure for Oregon.

That's what gets alot of people, up here. They see other Jeeps running without doors, be it here or elsewhere, & just assume that it's okay. In other jurisdictions, yes, it might be fine, but here you're just playing with fire, running without doors. Some try to argue that Jeep even puts that "doors & roof are meant to protect from elements only, not to protect occupants in a crash" sticker on as proof it's legal - doesn't matter here. Here it's the law, period, end of story, stop trying to argue unless you're prepared to do something constructive ie work to change the law. Elsewhere, check your laws, & if allowed, enjoy! :cheers:

You would need to relocate your drivers side mirror somewhere.

I've seen/heard of alot of Jeep folk that use bicycle mirrors bolted to the tub, usually using the hinge as the bolt point. Super cheap to pick up, just not sure how you'd mount them on the Eagle, might need to make up a bracket?
