Driving A Jeep With No Doors?

Hey, With all this heat we have been having I'm wondering if it is legal to take the doors off of my YJ and drive door less? I've herd yes and no answers to this one so if any one can clarify that would be sweet.

Thanks
Matt

"Doors shall be installed in a vehicle where the vehicle was manufactured with doors.
The doors with which a vehicle is equipped shall be in good working order, and any hinge, latch or handle must not be broken, missing or inoperable.
The doors shall not be warped, twisted or weakened to the extent that a slight jar will open them.
A door shall be capable of being opened or closed with normal effort."


Also, your mirrors are attached to the doors:

"...every motor vehicle manufactured after January 1, 1973 shall be equipped with an outside mirror on the driver's side that provides the driver with an undistorted reflected view of the adjacent lane of the highway rearward to the horizon from a point on the road surface 11 m behind the driver."


Short (proper) answer - no. Now, if you buy mirrors that sit in the door brackets like I did, or relocate them to the windshield, then just remember that you're taking a chance that you could be pulled off the road at any time. Be cautious if you do - without the doors, I get a lot more dust and spray from the tires that can get into your eyes, so I generally only go doorless offroads or on my way to a trail.

I don't have the extra mirrors for legality's sake, because it's already illegal and most any traffic cop is going to pick up on it. I have the mirrors because it's quite unnatural to drive without them, so for safety's sake, you might as well have them if you plan on driving without doors.

Wow that is sooo lame that you can't drive a jeep (designed to have no doors) with out the doors. OH well what can you do. Thanks for clearing that one up for me.

This gets asked every summer around here. Eugene is right, except for a few specific instances, it's illegal to remove your doors.

If the Jeep came from the factory with doors, you must have them on. Easy to tell...look for hinges and striker plates. My understanding that very early 1970's was the last year that doors were factory optional. If you have a WW2 jeep with just the cutouts, then you don't need them.

The CJ line right up until 1986 can get away with no doors, but must have the drivers side mirror remounted if it was originally fixed to the door.

As I mentioned...the striker and hinges are a dead giveaway. If it came without doors from the factory then it won't have these. If is does & the doors are missing...bingo!

^ doors were an option on those pre86 cj's
so if you want the door option you get hinges etc. you wouldnt get a ticket for not running optional equipment even if you are setup to run it no?

when i go on my weeklong bush bomb in the summer my doors are staying at home, this will be ALL off-highway tho. no doors is awsome for wheeling, super gay for driving around on the street tho

IF your new Jeep came from the factory with no doors, they did not install hinges or strikers..,.you don't have to runs doors now. If is DID come with doors, strikers, hinges etc, you must NOT remove the doors while on any "highway" in BC.
