One of the most significant appeals of Jeep® Wrangler ownership, on par with the SUV’s off-road capabilities, is its unbridled, open-air driving experience. Stripping your Wrangler’s top and doors before bolting to the beach, trekking down the trail, or cruising through the canyons makes for a truly freeing experience, far removed from conventional cars and trucks.

Removing your Jeep’s doors isn’t all fun and games, however. Driving without doors can subject you and your passengers to safety and convenience concerns. Instead of removing your Jeep's doors altogether, we recommend swapping them for tube or half doors.

If you’re unsure which aftermarket doors will best suit your Jeep, you’re in the right place. Stay tuned for our expert’s top five tube and half doors. Along the way, we’ll cover benefits, configurations, and storage ideas, ensuring you can make an informed purchase.

Tube and Half Door Benefits

So, what makes tube and half doors better than factory doors?

Full steel doors don’t give drivers and passengers a pure Jeep driving experience. Driving a Jeep is all about feeling the wind in your hair and the sun against your face, soaking in everything Mother Nature has to offer—so why not take the doors off?

With the doors removed, you’ll notice just how exposed you are. Driving without doors removes several inches of metal between you, your passengers, and other drivers on the road. In a collision, you won’t be nearly as protected. Additionally, Jeep’s high center of gravity makes the platform prone to tipping, and you’ll certainly prefer to have doors in a rollover.

Tube and half doors find a happy middle ground between full sheet metal doors and doorless driving. These accessories provide similar open-air driving experiences without all the risks, keeping you and your passengers safer.

Other benefits include increased visibility of your surroundings, superior durability on the trail, and rugged aesthetics—nothing makes a Jeep look trail-ready like a set of tubular steel doors.

Aftermarket Door Styles

Now that we’ve covered tube and half-door benefits, let’s discuss the differences between these popular aftermarket door styles.

Tube Doors

Best Jeep Wrangler Tube Doors and Half Doors | RealTruck (5)

Tube doors refer to rugged, trail-style doors constructed from durable steel tubing. Tube doors come in full-height and half-height configurations, though both feature at least two horizontal tubes for superior protection in a collision or rollover.

Half Doors

Half doors refer to sheet metal doors in half-height configurations. While some half doors feature full plate steel construction, others substitute steel mesh to increase airflow and styling, as with Paramount Recon Half Doors.

Storing Jeep Doors

Best Jeep Wrangler Tube Doors and Half Doors | RealTruck (12)

Removing your Jeep’s doors comes with another often unforeseen consequence—now you’ll need room to store up to four full-size Jeep doors. Fortunately, we offer several products to get the job done. But first, let’s cover some tips and tricks to prevent dings, scratches, and other damages while storing.

1. Store Your Jeep’s Doors Inside

While not everyone has the space in the garage or shop, we always recommend storing your Jeep’s doors inside whenever possible. Doing so protects from the elements, including harsh UV exposure, unplanned rain showers, and any critters and insects that may make a home inside the door skins.

2. Store Your Jeep’s Doors Off the Ground

We recommend storing your Jeep’s doors off the ground, or at least off pavement or other abrasive surfaces. Doing so helps prevent rust-inducing paint chips and scratches, ensuring your Jeep’s doors are installed in the same condition they came off.

3. Cover Your Jeep’s Doors

We always recommend covering your Jeep’s doors in a soft blanket, tarp, or door-specific cover like the Rugged Ridge Door Storage Bag, preventing scratches and dents during storage. There’s nothing worse than going to reinstall your factory doors only to find a fresh ding or unsightly scratch.

4. Use the Right Equipment

Lastly, we recommend investing in proper storage solutions for your Jeep’s doors, ensuring safe, secure, and space-conscious storage. Products like the Body Armor 4x4 Door Storage Bar and EZ4x4 EZFolding Rolling Door Cart store your Jeep’s doors in a safe, protected, upright position, preventing accidental damage.
