Couldn't find a patent for this. Some say it's a hoax, others say it's got a virus in the video.

I think they are a lot cooler than Lambo doors.

I like that a lot. There cold be some serious issue though if a door accidently opened up on the interstate.

I've looked at the video several times and it seems to me that the door has to fold along a horizontal axis to get under the seats, possibly 1/3 of the way up the door.

Also, if the seat height above ground and the ground clearance is the same as is implled by the narration then how does this ~5" thk door fit into its space?

I like my Jeep soft doors, take them off and toss them in the back.

I do like the soft doors on a Jeep.

Before I had to sell my XJ I was about to take the doors off, but then I had kids and needed a family car.

I think about my XJ daily.

I want one very badly, but my wife doesn't want me to have one even worse.

If I got another it would be another XJ.
