    Whatcha think? We're leaving the push button part of the door handle, the mirror and of course the speaker (:haha: ). I'm figuring this will save the trouble of having to come up with new ways of recreating all three features of the door.

    Stupid? Ugly? Waste of time?

    Or id put the mirrors on the fender and take out the vent wing too. then just leave enough room on the bottom corner of the door for a speaker.

    I ask in all seriousness why move them farther forward? The way I see it is the purpose of the half door part is to lean out to see where to put the tires. As it is, I can lean out as far the seat belt will allow. Well and my tummy.:crazy:

    I just like the look of a bigger openings. it just looks weird small is all. I guess it serves its purpose though. As long as it work right?

    I like the bigger openings too , just looks better but if it works why not.I like the doorless look also but my doors are power so the wiring would be a pita.I am planning on a softtop by next summer if not before and then I will be looking into buying a set of manual doors so I can yank em off without the hassle of the wires.

    That's kind of what I was thinking. That and I always seem to shy away from doing exactly what everybody else does.:crazy:

    Well, that and I'm basically a lazy ass and don't want to do more work than is necessary.:haha:

    Maybe the narrow openings are motivation for him to narrow his tummy down...?:D:haha:

    I think it will work dude. Add yourself a piece of tube steel in the hole at an angle. It will help the door hold structure, and help keep those pesky jumping rocks away:D

    Oh, and keep a wetsuit handy for when the monsoons come :haha:
