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.
Talk about planned obsolescence! I went to lunch today. Left my driveway with 35,999 miles on my 2016 JKUR. At 36,009 miles, as I pull into the restaurant, my steering box suffers from catastrophic failure. So, I reached out to the dealer to see if there well be any chance of a "good will"...
