1/2 Doors and/or Tube doors
Im thinking about building a set of 1/2 doors. I would like to have a way to seal up the cab from the elements when it gets nasty out. Something like a snap on canvas. (like a soft door on a jeep)
Who has taken the time to build a set of 1/2 doors,and was it worth the work/time spent. Any tips? Door latch ideas?
Or are 1/2 doors just a ton of work that turns into a rock magnet?
Would tube doors be a longer lasting option?

Jeeps are for girls
And guys that wish they were girls.....
Automatic transmissions are gay.
Flipped up tow mirrors are the sagging pants of the truck world.

1/2 doors on a minitruck/4runner type vehicle aren't that bad. Fullsizes get tore up quick.

i think the biggest advantage of half doors over tube doors would be if the truck saw a lot of street time. Jeeps get away without doors because the tub is raised right there and stuff cant roll out.
