Thank you ExWrench, I grew up using Autocad, but used Draftsight to draw these up. Since the outside skin is 11 gauge, these will definitely have some weight to them. My guess is they will almost be as heavy as a full door when I get done with the inside panels. I will try to weigh them soon. No plans right now for a kit. All depends on how I get the inside finished, otherwise the doors are pretty similar to savvy, but the goal is to be similar to zebra or rugged Ridge but with handles that line up lol (the shit drives me crazy)
wow. That explanation is all-the-more impressive;with your skillset, couldn't the outside or the whole thing also be done in aluminum or would that be dastardly to try to TIG weld as well as costly as heck?
I do not think the Savvy doors are as complete as your design but they gotta be lighter.
I wasn't gonna comment but ExWrench read my thoughts and I wondered about weight, too.
the curve is so awesome.
you could dimple-die some inner stuff to lighten, maybe?
Maybe you haz engine that weight is not such a factor on.
I made some pieces, shown in a previous pic, that I drew with a huge radius, and after 2 attempts I got the front door right. The rear door I got right the first attempt. The jk body has about 3/8" roll to it from center
Phenomenal work! And i share the same thoughts on the door handles, HATE that they don't line up on certain manufacturers (OCD sucks sometimes lol) and don't like the zebra handles protruding from the side of the door, both just look like afterthoughts to me.
I had a few questions here about my hemi swap. Mostly I'm posting this here are a help to folks that search.
I swapped a 2011 vvt hemi into my 2011 JKUR. Total cost...under $10000
heres the rough numbers:
1. found a brand new engine and trans from a grand Cherokee that fell off the car...
Hey there fellow jeepers, so I'm at the age old debate about what to do with this 3.8.
I have an 07 JKU, completely overhauled suspension, 3.5 lift and 35s. Manual trans, 4:10 gears on D44 front and rear. Nothing too crazy. And let me add that the ONLY issue Ive ever had with my 3.8 is that I...
I'm getting ready to install a 3in Teraflex lift, and I'm planning to run 37-inch tires. I want to add a sector shaft and track bar brace. Wondering what people are using? The only one I really know of this is the Synergy one and my understanding is there might be fitment issues.
I need to put in 4.88 gears in my 2015 JKR.
I finally stepped up from 35" tires to 37" tires and the lack of grunt off road is very noticable!
Who is in the area for a good set of gears? I am close to Chehalis, but can travel to Olympia, Tacoma, Longview, Portland etc. as needed.
I had a shop install my power steering cooler and I think they put it on the high pressure line instead of the low. I even had an8 to 3/8"fittings that they didn't use :( Is this okay? Steering does feel a little better, though maybe that's just placebo
