    Bastage told me it was legal to run without doors in Washington. After over a week and a half with them off, I got pulled over by a couple sheriffs tonight. :haha:

    I heard them talking back at the car, and heard one of them saying he had seen me going to opposite direction a few days before, and had wanted to have a chat with me then. :haha:

    I can't count how many other LEO's I've passed, including staters. :dunno:

    I was friendly (as were the sheriffs), BS'ed, and they let me off with a warning. Realized today that the DOL still hasn't mailed me a title for Knucklehead, but I guess that's ok. :screwy:

    I think the doors will go back on soon. :crazy:

    One question. Do you ever see Junks running around with the top and doors off? The reason I ask is a friend of mine had the same problem with getting pulled over for no doors, however when asked about why junks are allowed to run around like that he stated that it was because they were designed to drive around without the doors on:doah: . Anyway he did some research and beat the ticket.


    I'm not by any means saying it is legal. All states are differant. But I would look in to it.

    AFAIK, the reason Jeeps are allowed to run without doors is that they have a lip at the bottom of the door preventing the contents of the floorpan from spilling out onto the highway. There was a guy on Pirate who had had the same experience and he bolted a piece of angle iron to the floor and although the popo didn't like it, he got away with it after that.

    Have you guys ever thought that perhaps, in this day and age of technological advances (i.e. the Internet) there might be a good chance that your local and state laws, especially something like vehicle laws would be online?????????:D

    We actually have links for Oregon and Washington in the Pacific region...I'm betting he just needed abit of a lip to keep things from exiting the vehicle and they probably pulled him over cause he looked suspicious...:D

    That's how he asked Fumes. We call that online research. Like all of the "do you think I should go to the hospital" questions.

    you should be able to get away with just a lip. Make it a big one... like 4-5" tall. Oughta be ok. Roll out the, "but I see jeeps with the doors removed all the time officer" comment if they give you crap. I'm willing to bet that 99.9% of cops don't have that part of the law memorized verbatim.

    THEY brought up the Jeep thing! :haha: I'm not going to dick with it. Maybe I'll get a good set of half-doors at some point, but for now, the doors are back on.
