Following the debut of the 2021 Ford Bronco, its safe to say Jeep was feeling a bit of pressure. The new Ford arrived with removable body panels and hundreds of accessories, aimed specifically at doing battle with their iconic Wrangler. Not ones to let their off-roading crown be challenged however, the brand just rolled out the all-new Wrangler 392 yesterday. And while the debut of a V8-powered Wrangler is quite the challenge for the Bronco in itself, it wasn’t the only long-awaited item confirmed by the brand. FCA has officially announced that the 2021 Jeep Wrangler lineup will be receiving half-doors via the Jeep Performance Parts catalog.
Half-doors have long been a popular modification with Jeep Wrangler owners, as they offer a bit of the open-air experience without the same level of exposure. Jeep first teased the idea of bringing half-doors to the market back in 2018, when they debuted their Jeepster Concept for that year’s Jeep Easter Safari. Jeep also stuck them on the Wrangler 392 Concept, which made its debut the same day as the Bronco. Things got a bit more interesting recently however, when a Wrangler test vehicle was actually spotted with a pair of the doors fitted. Now that the hemi-powered 4×4 is here, it’s clear that the testing wasn’t done for nothing.
Details about the new half-doors from Jeep are still scarce, though the company has provided images of them attached to a 392 Wrangler. The doors aren’t just meant for the new range-topper however, and should be compatible on all Wrangler models. Based on how the doors look on the new super-Jeep, it’s probably safe to say that buyers will be pleased, FCA has yet to confirm whether or not buyers will be able to spec the half-doors during the ordering process, though we have reached out for clarification.
