This week, the Jeep Wrangler configurator has been updated with some of the most long awaited options the icon off-roader has ever received. The first, of course, is the V8 powered Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392. But the 392 First Edition starts at a steep $73,500 and is out of budget for most buyers. Luckily, the 392 debuted an other new option that’s available on every Jeep Wrangler at a far more affordable price. That is the Dual Door Group, or much requested Jeep Wrangler Half Doors.
Essentially, the Jeep Wrangler Dual Door Group gives a set of half doors along with the regular doors that come with the vehicle. These half doors come with removable windows, and are available in either base or premium uppers, and can be equipped on all Wrangler models expect for High Altitude. This means the 4xe hybrid can also spec them when it arrives this spring.
The base uppers come with a cheaper plastic vinyl window surround that matches the base level Wrangler roof, while the premium uppers have a cloth fabric material that matches the upgraded soft top. Premium doors also work with heated mirrors and speed-sensitive power locks, while the base doors do not, meaning you’ll select whichever ones work with the trim level, top material and options you have otherwise selected. Unsurprisingly, the dual door group is cheaper on two door models, coming in at $2,350 for base and $3,995 for premium. For four door models, it’s $2,550 and $4,395 for base and premium respectively.
These half doors aren’t really half the height of the regular doors, but rather follow the Wrangler’s shoulder line. It gives a more sleek design, especially when the doors and roof is off. Unfortunately, the half doors won’t come on every available Wrangler color, as the configurator doesn’t allow Chief Blue and Nacho to select the dual door group.
Jeep says Wrangler models with the dual door group will come with the regular doors installed, and the half doors in the vehicle. They should only take a few minutes to swap between, and will give better style, a more open air experience and better visibility off-road. At long last, the half doors are here, and we are so happy they made it from the Jeep Wrangler 392 to all models.
