Door Storage

Okay. Im tired of using the search option and finding 0! Does anyone have a way to store the doors when off? Pics would be nice.

i did this about a year ago. found them in the hasp/lock section at home depot. used two per door. screwed to the 2X4 with 4 2" wood srews each. cost about 5 or 6 bucks. plenty strong enough for jk doors. i dipped each one in some liquid rubber tool dip.

Storage?

This is by far the most convenient option I've seen.

Way better, safer and more original than mine. Havn't marred any yet but the top of the hooks do touch the door.

At Home Depot and Lowes they have ladder racks that are padded and perfect for Jeep doors. They are $6 each. One bracket perfectly supports one door. They are rated for like 150 pounds so they are extra strong.

Some carts I made from PVC and plywood. Had about half the material on hand from other stuff and bought the rest. At some point I stapled some strips of carpet down on the base.

That's a great solution Berlin. A lot of great ideas here.

My vote is for the RubiCajun deal just because of the coolness factor. And I don't have a real garage yet. I could do this in my shed although I'm anal retentive so the rear doors would have to be in the middle and the fronts on the outside

Funny when I first looked at it I thought one hook was hanging from the light

i was going to do the ladder hooks but i have door vent shades. too much weight on the plastic shades. but good for those that don't have the shades.

yeah. screwed four eyebolts into the ceiling joists and used four tie down straps. pretty cheap, under 12 bucks if I remember. just back Freebird in the garage, undo the torx bolts and station the rubber coated hooks, pull up on the straps. do it by myself. no problemeaux.

I think I'm gonna build a rack that holds the doors up by the hinges like that but attach the whole thing to a harbor freight hoist mounted to the ceiling rafter in the shop so I can lift 'em up and store them up high out of the way.

Do you really need a rack. Can't you just hang the doors on the hook of the hoist and raise them up?

No, nOt like keys I was thinking of the second post where he used the tow straps for the hard top. MY BAD. I see what you mean. If there is only one or two hooks for the hoist, then yes you need a rack. I'm an idiot. Or maybe its past my bedtime.

I'm thinkin something like this, hang the doors by the hinges but vertically
attach the hoist to a cable run between the eyebolts so I can shift it side to side balance it level.
pretty much just a 2x6 with 2 eyebolts on top to hang it by and 4 eyebolts on each side to hang the doors by the hinges on.
Its a quickie autocad but it should get the point across.

thoughts? ideas? am I nuts?

That's a pretty good idea if you have the hoist and it's high enough to be out of the way and not bang your head. And maybe secure each door with one of the nuts in case they sway so they don't slide off.

Nice model Oh and you should rotate it 90deg on the X axis or you'll be dragging the doors across the shop floor

no they are not, he should have put the front doors next to each other then the rear doors. and the door in the foreground is about 1-3/32" higher than the rest. AND his rakes aren't in order either. the helmets should be in correct order by color as in the ultraviolet spectrum, the pictures on the wall aren't in even AND the stickers on his windsheild aren't in order.
