Re: YJ half door, add key lock

You could use a set of these http://www.quadratec.com/cgi-bin/sgs...M=11&PAGLEN=10
They mount on the hing side.
Why do you want to lock it anyway? You'll just be encouraging people to cut holes in your top. If they want something inside, they will get it.

Re: YJ half door, add key lock

you are right, but it still feels unnatural not to lock the door when I park in an unfamiliar area.

thanks for the info

Yep, I know the feeling, just have to get use to it. Locking it up with only beg people to try to slash the top. I had my YJ for 3yrs of college and forunately never had anything inside it touched. I did get some full hard doors and a hard top for the Maine winters, which can lock. Never have seen a locking kit for the half doors.

Re: YJ half door, add key lock

Wow! Ever half door I have seen has had locks, although I don't see the point. If the upper door is on, the windows just unzip or better, they slice with a pocket knife. I know what you mean about the unnatural feeling though. It usually takes me a few days to stop locking my doors in the summer once the top is off.

Re: YJ half door, add key lock

My 95 Rio Grande has half doors without locks as well. I think that the original doors were stolen off the Jeep and the PO bought aftermarket ones that don't have locks and got them painted. As far as I know, stock doors had locks. BTW: everyone is right about locking the half doors. They're not gonna protect anything. I even took the top off my center console so people won't try breaking it open. I leave nothign valuable in my Jeep, ever..and my jeep remains untouched
