Simple tube doors

I found a gallery on Superford.org where dude (JRDBronco) made some tube doors for his Bronco out of the outside spare tire rack. Simple, easy, cheap and strong. PIcs are on my 86 Bronco, but will use them on my 84 with the S&W rollcage. JSM84

Automatic transmissions are gay.

The hinge on the passngr-side of the Bronco is still in good shape. The factory door weighs like 60 lbs., so the hinge allows the door to stay open or to close nearby the latch without actually latching to the striker. Since the tube door weighs less than 20 lbs., it has no problem with moving around, since the hinge assembly keeps it open or closed. It's still heavy enough to operate the hinge. Since the driver's-side is used more often, it's so worn out on both Broncos that the stock door wants to close all of the time when left open. Will look at replacing the hinge on that side on my 84 so the tube door works properly. Also thinking of a simple and quick latch set-up to tie the tube into the factory door striker. I've seen some where the door latch assembly is bolted to a couple of tabs on the tube door, with a rod to work the latch. I'm thinking just a simple hook/pin to grab the striker. JSM84

I fabbed a simple latch from an old bicycle frame and a stiff spring to keep it shut. Will post pics soon. I used a simple Bungee cord strapped to the seat frame to keep me in Mark's Bronco out at Long's Ranch.
