Instructions – Warning

WARNING: The top on this vehicle is designed only for additional protection against the elements.

Periodically check for tightness and retighten when necessary. Wear seat belts at all times.

Parts Provided:

  • 2 each — 3/8″ x 4.5″ Button head bolts – uses 7/32 allen wrench
  • 4 each — 3/8″ x 5.0″ Button head bolts – uses 7/32 allen wrench
  • 6 each — 3/8″ Nylon washers
  • 6 each — 3/8″ Steel washers
  • 6 each — Door inserts
  • 1 each — Left upper half door
  • 1 each — Right upper half door
  • 1 each — Instruction sheet


Follow the instructions and perform the steps in the sequence given. Shortcuts to the directions may result in an unsatisfactory installation.

1. Remove the soft upper half doors. Remove the factory installed Jeep door inserts by using a large flat-bladed screw driver and gently prying them up.

2. Once loose, the door inserts can then easily be removed by hand. There should be three (3) per side. Next run a screw driver bit down each hole about 6”. Make sure the hole is not obstructed. Some YJ’s have a plate at the bottom of the hole. You might need to run a 7/16” drill bit to clear the hole.

3. Install the new door inserts back into the lower door holes. There is a tab on one side of the insert, it can only fit into the hole in one direction. If the inserts are installed properly, the top plastic flange will rest against the top portion of the door.

4. Place the metal washer first and then the plastic washer onto the bolts. Place the upper half door onto the lower half door. Insert the bolts, 4.5” bolt in the front and the 5.0” bolts in the back two holes.

As you tighten the bolts, from the top of the insert, pull in, until they are snug. DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN.
