    I have a 2 door Jeep Wrangler x 2007 and the doors won't budge I thought that I had bolts on the top parts but when I tried using a socket wrench they wouldn't come out. Any ideas?

    As long as you took the nuts off keep working at it, it's always tight the first time.

    It didn't come with any bolts on the door I think they are nuts but I can't get the ratchet to grip on to what I think are nuts.

    There are t50 torq nuts that appear to have already be removed. You might try spraying some penetrating oil up in there, looks pretty gunked up.

    Here's what the kind pin looks like.

    Welcome! The pics show significant corrosion which will require some heavy use of rust penetrant to dissolve the corrosion. You may have to resort to a block of wood propped up by a floor jack as you swing the door slowly to work the door upwards. This is a proven method but you must avoid the loose off-balance door dance where it lifts off abruptly as you try to avoid dropping it or ramming it into the jeep. Once the door(s) are successfully removed the cleanup begins. Sand off the corrosion, discard the rusty metal liners and look at getting some Delrin liners so this won't happen again.

    Welcome to the forum jeepwranglerx. Apparently you went to the school of photography by aggrex. o_O. It's all good. What's another headache. Lollll.

    As far as the issue with your doors. You got some very good advice from some questionable members. :notsure:. But they do know their shit. Take their advice. And you'll be running naked in no time. :jellydance:
