    Valhalla Fabrication is excited to introduce tube doors for the Jeep Grand Cherokee WJ!


    Features include:
    • 1.5” x 1/8" wall HREW tubing
    • 2” x 3” x 3/16" angle iron mounting flange
    • Guaranteed rattle-free latches using the factory striker
    • Laser cut slotted latch plates for adjustment
    • Only 22 lbs per front door & 20 lbs per rear door, thus making your WJ appox. 240 lbs lighter.
    • 100% USA made
    For side mirrors, we recommend using a 1.5" tube clamp with a drilled/tapped hole such as THESE. We went this route to allow customers to purchase mirrors after-the-fact, and to allow a wide variety of options for the mirrors themselves. This also provides a cleaner look should you want to remove them (for tight trails, etc).



    Pricing for front pairs: $295 + shipping

    Pricing for a full set of front and rears: $590 + shipping

    (Shipping runs about $35 per pair & $65 per set in the lower 48)



    Email Address: valhallafab@gmail.com
    Phone Number: 847-767-5103
    Facebook Page: facebook.com/ValhallaFab



    Please allow a couple weeks for build time. They are shipped as bare metal, but we may offer a powder coating option in the future. We're also looking into a mesh netting option. (No ETA on these)


    Thanks again to everyone for their feedback in this thread.


    More pictures here.

    Those look good! That would solve my door issue.
    Reading your thread, you took time to work out the design. Well done!

    Are they hinged to open? I figured since you have the latch on there they are, I just don't see where the hinges are, unless they're behind the angle iron mount for the front.

    yeah Dave the factory door hinges are left in place and bolted inside that angle iron, you can see the bolt heads or nuts facing the rear of the vehicle. These are awesome looking doors and have a great transition between the front and rear, lookin great man!

    Cool, that's what I figured. I'm used to my tube doors where you can see the hinges on this are much cleaner.

    Its a matter of perspective really, but an aluminum/sheet metal skin would look pretty good. The only downfall would be losing some visibility and air flow. Mesh netting would be another option, but wouldn't be nearly as durable as aluminum/steel/polycarb/etc on the trail.

    the only visibility gain you get is on the passenger side, even then if you don't have some one riding shot gun i'm sure you could get someone to spot you.

    You would lose a fair amount of visibility if the doors were skinned. Granted, it's not nearly as bad as having full doors, it's still much safer/easier than sticking your body out of the vehicle to get a view of an obstacle.

    thats if your using the 4 point harness, if your using the stock seatbelt and it doesn't lock up on you, you can look out.

    The stock front doors weigh 80 lbs each, and the rear doors weigh 70 lbs each. Each tube door is only 25 lbs, so a total of 200 lbs is saved. That's a good amount!
