Default Taking doors off?

Has anyone taken the doors off their HB when wheeling and what not? I was wondering how hard it is to do? And what are the legal guidelines for if i get pulled over in PA? Thanks

Not sure how difficult the door is to remove... but if a jeep can roll around without doors I can't see why a HB couldn't. Just need to relocate the mirror.

There is a roll pin you will have to tap out and replace with a hair pin of some kind.

there is a "c" clip you have to take off the pin first. as far as the door removal, check with your state laws. jeeps were sold without doors so that may be the catchall.

You'll need to wire in a plug if you have any wiring going to your doors, but the hinges themselves can be unbolted by 4 bolts per side and by removing the roll pin.

Where I live in Canada I know the jeeps are allowed because it was sold with removable doors and has a roll cage so the doors are not required for structural rigidity.
Also some police may get picky about the lack of side view mirrors so just pick up a set of stick on or motorcycle mirrors and temporarily install them.
