Does anyone know of any companies selling a steel outer skin repair panel for a Wrangler hard door?

Any help appreciated.

I........didnt do anything to it, just got a great deal on a hard top and 2 full doors, top needed back window and doors needed SOME attention (BAD paint job)....
So......stripped and blasted the doors, all steel great except around the door handle on the passenger side, apparently some genious tried to repair rust holes by brazing them shut. But hey...$150.00 for the lot, couldnt pass it up.

Just to add, dealer CAN get the DRIVER side door skin, but have discontinued the Passenger side skin.go figure.

You HAVE to have doors on your Jeep (if they came with doors from the factory) up here in order to legally drive on the street. Besides, spend some time 'wheeling up here and you'll want doors too...it's a little cooler and wetter than Texas. ;-)

Dirty is one thing, needing a life jacket is another. Most of the trails around here look like this in the spring


if you look at the bank behind the truck you can see that the water was actually a foot higher earlier in the spring.

Try asking at an auto body shop. They would have a list of companies that supply panels for accident repair.

You'll have to excuse my buddy waterlogged. Sweet pic chris. See waterlogged likes to talk smack, if you want him to be quiet ask him how much of a lift and how big his tires are. Its against the law to drive with doors off. Sucks

Actually.............

never had any problems here (Ottawa, Canada) driving without doors, still.....will be a bit chilly in the winter....

Checked all the body shop suppliers and nothin'......even Chrysler stopped makin them..,.Oh well

The stretched canvas idea defenitely sounds "Jeepy"......
