    Hanging doors for storage?

    I see a lot of pictures online of Jeep owners hanging their doors by sliding them via the open window onto different sorts of padded hooks etc. Any risk of leaving marks on the doors or otherwise damaging them (maybe the rubber around the window?) by doing this?

    Hereís what Iím talking about...

    Personally I wouldn't do it that way
    I like the method of putting hinges and a catch on the wall.
    Mine are just leaning against the wall with moving mat under to protect the edge.

    If I did hang them on the wall, I would pad the hanger. May with pool noodles.

    I've been hanging mine like in the picture for the last ten years. Usually for weeks at a time with no issues.

    Another alternative is to build a cart. I also found a vinyl cover for it to keep the dust and dirt off. I'm a little short on wall space and this works for me. One advantage is that I can roll the cart up to my Jeep when it's time to change the doors.

    I hang mine like the first picture all summer for the last 7 years, no issues. I used the plumbing pipe insulation on the brackets I made.
