CJ-7 Door Assembly Tech Tips


Having nice doors is like having the right shoes or right hat…..or not having them at all is always an option too. Especially when driving a Jeep; keeping the doors on has always been questionable.

We know how to take the doors off, but putting them together is the tricky part.

That’s why PBC has put together this post to show you a CJ-7 Door Assembly to help you in your future endeavors experiencing the “Jeep Thing”…


Below is the final results of a 1984 CJ-7 restoration done here at PBC

(TIP:) that will be attached AFTER being painted and AFTER the window channels, glass window, and window vents are put in!

Below is a video, demonstrating the CJ-7 door assembly. 

 Tip: You HAVE to put the glass in first and leave it loose to be able to put in that window vent.

 Tip: Spray the window channels (the black rubber around the window frame) with Windex to make the pieces slip right into each other, without scratching or chipping the paint.

Tip: Make sure and roll the window up and down a few times before completing the assembly to make sure the window is placed correctly.
