Hi,
Medieval Door Systems manufactures products designed to be
used with the removable doors of Jeep Wrangler® vehicles.

I am asking all SWB Jeep owners in the forum to take a short
(10 question) survey about my company's new accessory product.

To answer these questions you will first need to look at a picture
of our new Halberd™ Door System.

If you haven't seen it yet, please click this link to view
the rack before you begin this survey.

If you've already seen the Halberd™, please click this link to take the survey:

After the survey you can enter to win a set of our new foot pegs!
Thanks,

Correct me if I'm wrong, but based on what I see in the pictures, it looks like once the brackets are in place, they would need to be removed in order to put the top up. A half or bikini top wouldn't have this problem...but it looks like a full top would.

Again, I'm basing this mainly off of this picture...so I could be wrong:

AM I seeing this right.. you drive around with the doors hanging on the outside of the Jeep???

I am not sure how I feel about this.. I can see the convenience .Having your doors if you need them.. But ............................................... Ummm............. I just dont know...

Anyway.. Wish I had a dollar for every person that didnt understand what I am doing with my Jeep....

Good luck.. You have yourself an original Idea.... Hope it works out..

I know how hard it is to be the first to do stuff... Mr. Green

It's a neat idea! I think that you market to people that are not avid four wheelers. Basically, I would never put those on my jeep while going off road just due to off camber angles or the chance that a narrow trail would rip the doors right off. I think people that drive jeeps just for the novelty of having a jeep would enjoy your product. I applaud your creativity and origianl idea, I know that I have never thought of this and have looked to store my doors in many other locations. Good luck with the product and I wish you the best!

Sorry I didn't reply sooner -- apparently I didn't have the notification set.

First, thanks for taking the suvey!

Yes the brackets need to be adjusted to put up a soft or hard top.
The small bracket in the pic above is NOT removed, just loosened and rotated 90 degrees.

For the larger hinge plate you remove 3 allen head screws. The bracket comes off, but the mounting stays put.

The whole process takes about the same amount of time as putting your top up.

Swampboy - No, I don't think you're quite seeing it right, but let me show you.
If you look at this pic you can see that the doors only stick out about 2 inches more from the body than they do when they're on the Jeep.

Those are Bushwacker 6" flares, so if you're going to hit a tree, you'll know it LONG before your doors are in danger.

Don't get me wrong, you'd be better off leaving your doors at the trailhead of you're out for some hard core twisting, but for the type of off-roading most "daily drivers" do my rack will work just fine.

Thanks for your thoughts!

keithtj - OUCH, man. I'm the "market people" and designer, and janitor too, lol. and I can tell you that I've been off-roading Wranglers since '95.

No, I don't go hard core rock bashing every time I go out, but since I travel to over 20 trail riding and other Jeep events each year and still manage to hit a trails in my local area, I'd say I'm pretty "avid".

Please keep in mind that I am not selling this rack as a rock crawling performance upgrade, but I'm also not going to say you CAN'T off-road with it.

What it is, is versitility and convenience.

Thanks
