    4x4 Iron has some sweet tube doors. I forget the price, but it should be on Tim's website.

    some ck5ers make tube doors, thats where i got mine. Im not a big fan of wheeling with NO doors at all... i mean, if you are strapped into a 5 point harness and your rig flops over on its side and a big boulder or tree stump just happens to be right next to your door when you do it, you're going to be in a LOT of trouble. Not very smart if you ask me, running with no doors. No doubt a bunch of peeps will be like "no way man, Ive been doin it for 20 years and Im ok!!"... yeah, whatever... some smokers do that for 50 years and live, doesnt mean its a good idea.

    A guy named Esteban from So Cal Big Dawgs is fabbing a set of half doors. I don't know if they're completed yet, but from what I saw they looked pretty cool. If you go on the SCBD board, you might be able to get hold of him! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I've seen rocko's tube doors and they are nice. The latch works perfectly (which is a problem on some tube doors) and they are nice and stout.
    I also don't think I'd run with no doors, but if I did then I'd probably go with those.
