      It might look OK if you had a full canvas top that you could drop like a Jeep, and had big tires and a nice lift. Otherwise NO it wouldn't look right with the hard roof and 4 doors.

      It'll look like its been in an accident and parts are falling off. For offroading, it might be useful, but nobody cares what it looks like on the trail....and sometimes parts ARE falling off.

      The doors are really really hard to take off, so don't even try. LOL.


      BTW, welcome to the site! What mods do you have?

      Well if it is stock height, i would especially say NO. that's like taking the doors off a minivan.

      Probably right. It is cool with jeeps, but I don't think it would work out so well with explorers.



      Just thought I would add how to remove doors::D

      rick has this done but as you all know he is lifted he also has tube doors which are required by law in just about all 50 states. I started to build a tube door but sold my 99 sport a few years back after seeing ricks ride. The only problem i had was putting the doors back on and getting them to sit right.
