JK & JKU Door hinge Sleeves

Evobaskets is proud to introduce our line of door hinge sleeves for the jeep JK and JKU.

https://www.evobaskets.com/collectio...ushing-sleeves

When Jeep released the JK and JKU they utilized a thin sheet metal sleeve as a liner between the door pins and door hinge. Over time (sometimes rather quickly) the sleeves begin to corrode making door operation more challenging let alone door removal. Additionally over time the upper flange that is designed to be a wear part busing to keep the door hinge from rubbing on the body hinge begins to wear away causing premature rusting.

Evobaskets is solving this issue with their new door hinge sleeve kit!

The kit comes with all new door sleeves (four sleeves for the 2door and eight for the 4door) as well as the needed tool for removing the old factory sleeves. The new sleeves are made from high quality delrin (plastic) and the tool is machined from steel with the necessary taper for old sleeve removal.

Customers ask all the time "how long will the install take" and it really varies based upon a lot of factors (amount of winter driving, north east vs out west, beach driving, etc), we have seen 2007 sleeves come out with ease and we have seen 2014 sleeves that looked like they spent 20 years at the bottom of the ocean.

Attached we have pictures of a 2 door set taken from a garage kept 2013 JK, the upper lip is basically gone already!

Like all Evobaskets products we manufacture 100% of our products right here in the good old USA!

Now through the end of June we are offering 10% off for JKowners members, simply enter discount code jkowners at checkout.

That looks like a nice kit. Including the removal tool is a good idea.

I appreciate my Delrin bushings every time I open and close a door.
Passengers have remarked how easily the doors swing.

Thanks for the kind words, they make a world of difference and sadly the factory bushings have become a "maintenece" item much like spark plugs, brake pads, oil changes, etc. The delrin lasts longer than the factory and life is a lot easier!

And thank you to all those who have ordered, we appreciate it!

You are welcome and thanks for the response. More kits going out every day, it's "doors off" weather so might as well make the update, and as always with ALL Evobaskets products.........

These are made of Delrin plastic, same as are most all the other kits on the market.

Well, these kits have been rolling out so we decided to keep the discount alive another week and a half until Sunday 07/16 (end of PA Jeeps).

interested.
I'm gonna check my '11s bushings thanks to this but will say that I pretty much keep my JKU and every part slathered in either CRC 2-26 or FluidFilm so I'm interested to see how mine look. You also won't wanna lean up against my jeep in any clothing you care about, heehee

If my always lubed bushings are at all like the ones pictured that are from a garage kept '13 I'll order some of these. It's cool you include the little punch tool. Price is fair, too.

The other area you will want to check is what I will call the "upper lip" of the factory bushing. These have a tendency to wear down/out over time as well putting the door hing flange directly against the body hinge.

Thanks for the comments on price as well, for kicks and giggles we called our local dealer to get a price on factory replacements, they are $19, EACH, and no removal tool!

TJ kits coming soon as well, never know there may be TJ owners lurking here as well

I feel like I am in pretty decent shape, but my biceps were sore for two days the last time I took my doors off. The bushings are such junk that makes taking the doors off a real drag. Looking forward to getting these installed!

It's depressing to start talking about the end of summer around the corner but sadly it is, before the doors go back on for the winter upgrade your door hinge bushings to the Evobaskets sleeve kits and make spring time door removal a breeze!

Don't let those factory bushings corrode further over the winter, swap out now while the weather is nice for the plastic replacements!
