Homemade Doors

Wanting to get ideas on homemade doors since aftermarket ones are so expensive and everyone complains about how hard they are to install because of the tolerances. So if anyone has made a set of homemade doors pics and ideas would be greatly appreciated.

This is a great idea. You could use puck board (skid plate) as it's cheap. What to use as a frame?
Door hinges and lock might be an issue.

There are a few guys on here that made their own doors and put pictures up. If you do a search you should be able to find them. Some turned out pretty nice.

The problem with homemade doors is, unless you're a pretty awesome fabricator, they're gonna look like home made doors. It's like putting a home made canopy and a new pickup. Why spend all that money on a nice Commander and then go cheap on accessories? I'm not saying it can't be done. But I think the doors are well worth the money. I'm going to install my TurnKey doors today.

Rhino not trying to say im the best fabricator but I rebuild and customize old dodge pickups and know how to operator all kinds of machinary (at 21years old) and with the help of my dad and uncle we can design almost anything. Just trying to get ideas on what worked for everyone else. Pics so my homemade roof, homemade plow and totally restored 82 ram d150. Just thought id share some of my talents.

home made doors

Go for it. Mine cost me $150, and they lift right off if needed.
