  • New half doors and choice of upper-window assemblies are now available as part of new Jeep® Gladiator Dual-Door Group factory option
  • Warranty coverage for each Dual-Door Group option is included as part of the new-vehicle warranty of three years/36,000 miles
  • Expanded open-air freedom options strengthen appeal of Jeep Gladiator, winner of the midsize pickup category in the J.D. Power 2021 Initial Quality Study (IQS)
September 14, 2021 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - Jeep® Performance Parts (JPP) from Mopar is introducing new half doors for the 2021 Jeep Gladiator, offering an enhanced open-air experience for the most off-road capable Jeep truck ever.

“Open-air freedom is a hallmark of the Jeep brand,” said Jim Morrison, Vice President, Jeep Brand North America. “Following our introduction of new half doors for Jeep Wrangler earlier this year, we are now giving passionate Gladiator owners an opportunity to let even more of the outside in.”

“We work closely with our friends at Jeep to create and properly engineer new accessories,” said Mark Bosanac, North America Vice President, Mopar Service, Parts & Customer Care. “Across the entire Jeep vehicle lineup, we offer more than 500 quality-tested, factory-backed parts and accessories.”

New Jeep Gladiator Dual-Door Group features half doors
Engineered, tested and backed by the factory, the new half-door option enhances the driving experience with production styling, security and occupant protection for Jeep Gladiator, the highest ranked midsize pickup in the J.D. Power 2021 Initial Quality Study (IQS). With lower window ledges, new half doors provide improved visibility while maneuvering on- and off-road.

The new Jeep Gladiator Dual-Door Group includes both full and half doors and is available on all Jeep Gladiator models through the Mopar Custom Shop as part of an original new-vehicle purchase in the U.S. Lightweight, high-strength aluminum doors are installed on the vehicle while matching body-color, aluminum half doors are conveniently packaged within the vehicle.

With production-level materials and build quality, new half doors are designed to work when equipped with any of the following features: power mirrors, blind-spot detection, passive and non-passive entry handles, and power locks. A quick and easy swap from full doors to half doors is accomplished within minutes using the existing hinge locations and the exact same wiring connections.

Upper-window assemblies
New upper-window assemblies create a weather-tight seal and feature zippered plastic windows for quick, easy removal. Two materials are offered for the assemblies: base-model vinyl that matches the production soft-top roof or premium acrylic that matches the premium soft-top roof.

Each upper-door frame section uses an easy, tool-free, dual-guide post feature for easy installation and removal.

New Jeep Gladiator Dual-Door Group factory-option pricing (U.S.), which includes factory full doors and new half doors:
  • Dual-Door Group with base-model upper-window assemblies: sales code AJB, $4,590
  • Dual-Door Group with premium-model upper-window assemblies: sales code AJS, $4,990
Warranty coverage for each Dual-Door Group option is included as part of the new-vehicle warranty of three years/36,000 miles.

Half doors are a Jeep thing I don't understand. What's the attraction?
When off-road, half doors make a huge difference in visibility because they are lower. And for me, easier on the shoulder as I always rest my arm on the door. I will have to wait a few years, these are little steep.

How much lower? They honestly look barely different minus the window frames.

Looks to be about 4.5" lower which would make a difference when off-roading. I have been in all sort of years of Jeep with full, half and no doors in all kinds of terrain. Half doors make a big difference when you can see what you are getting close to.

Damn.....5 bills. As my wife always says “why is everything $5,000?” Add half doors to that same list. 😁

Doors on. Check.
Doors on windows down. Check.
Doors off. Check.
Tube doors. Check.
Half doors. .........

I doubt they make $5k difference.
