Offroad Evolution JK Half Doors

When looking at half buying some half doors I was interested in the Offroad Evolution doors. I couldn't find many pics at all of the doors. Most of the pics I could find were of show Jeeps and I knew those pics were not a realistic representation of how they would look on my JK.

Anyway, I bought them and figured I would post of some pics for others who might be looking to see what they actually look like before they buy them and also post my opinion of them.

My opinion - Exactly what I wanted. Lightweight, perfect fit, and a quality latch mechanism that doesn't rattle at all.

Construction - The doors are multiple piece doors when you get them. The main part of the door is an aluminum sheet with a lip formed on the bottom. The top armrest piece is a separate formed piece that attached with about 10 included button head cap screws and nuts. The hinges come with the doors and attach like any JK hinge with included hardware. The latch mechanisms also attached with button head cap screw that are provided.

Finish - The hinges and latches come powder coated so I left them as the came. The door panel I had painted stone white to match the Jeep. The armrest piece I sprayed with Plastidip because I've found it to be pretty dang durable with multiple coats and it provides a slightly grippy surface but not a rough surface.

Interior side - no door panels or anything. Just the other side of the metal and the exposed latch mechanism. Some might not like this. It's fine with me. I plan to plastidip the interior side of the doors at some point - or not. Time will tell.

Mirrors - They do accept mirrors. I went cheap (hate it when I do that) and bought a $100 set of mirrors from Extreme Terrain. Don't remember the manufacturer but they are some Chinese MOPAR knockoffs. They don't fit at all. Could be the doors, but I'm familiar with Offroad Evolution quality so I assume the fit issues are the cheap mirrors I bought. I'll order a set of mirrors from the dealership soon and see how they fit.

Anyway, here's a few pics from different angles. Again, I just wanted to share some thoughts and mostly some pics of what they look like on a normal persons Jeep, not a $85K show Jeep.

Hope this is helpful to someone trying to make a choice on what door they want.

Interesting so based on the interior pic, there is no bow to the door correct other than the bend at top? JK doors although appearing square actually have contour both front and back and top to bottom. Wondering if this has the same and if it does how its holding its shape.

I like that the skin on these can be painted. I have the Strike Force Zebra doors (pretty sure that company is defunct) and they have the same orange peel finish of the standard fender flares. It would look like dog shit trying to paint that.

Only issue I would have with these is that open hole on the bottom. Putting stuff under the seat would be visible. You know prying eyes.

No bow but a couple of bends in the door that are hard to see in the pics I posted. Here's a pic I found that shows them better.

EVO made a plate to fill the opening but Im not sure they actually sell it. I like it open so I never really looked for it but saw it in a couple pics.
