    Sure it can be done. When people started doing it there wernt any kits. The kit would be MUCH easier though.

    I cant afford the kit, and even if I could I still think the price is ridicolous. A couple hinges and latches, the hardware they are selling cant be worth more than 100$ tops.

    I agree with boosted, the kits are seriously very redicuous, but unfortunatly I don't know of anyone who has done there own, but it will be a pain getting right parts and measurements. Welcome to the forums by the way. But I dunno what to say, maybe you can take the hinges and all that off cars from the junkyard, and go from there, who knows. My buddy made a custom suicide hood off of some hood hinges from older cars he got from the junkyard for a couple bucks, and his hood is sick looking! Good luck, very good idea though! Sorry I couldn't be much help

    aight guys here it is........I made my suicide doors for 12 dollars all it takes is 4 hinges from a certain ride.....flip them backwards and do a lil fabrication and you got suicide doors for so much less then that damn 300.......bu unfortunately my buddy thought this up(its pretty genious) and he told me not to tell anyone he is going to sell the hinges and instructions on how to do this....so ill just show you a pic...then someone out there might know what they are off of.....

    reefer,

    Thats pretty low. Going on about how great these hinges are and how they are only 12 dollars and then saying i can't tell you what they're off of cause you guys won't buy my buddies kit then. I really doubt your buddy will sell his kit for 12 dollars and this website is all about helping people out, not just talking about things then making em buy a kit.

    i didnt mean to come off as an ass...in my first post when i said "and he told me not to tell anyone he is going to sell the hinges and instructions on how to do this.....i mean he told me not to tell anyone so they dont go selling the hinges and how to do it....i was typing fast and lost track....(cuz he got the idea from suicide doors)......and i said he thought it up...well he was told by them that basically the jeep hinges were the same...but shaped different but mechanically moved the same way and that some way they should be able to work just not sure how...so my buddy figured out u have to flip them backwards and off the opposite door of the jeep...im in this just like most of you if u can do it for cheaper and still be as good quality just a little fab work then thats great....im not tryin to be an ass.....go to a junkyard and find an old jeep.....4 hinges 12 bucks...and i hope things are clearer now

    Did you just take those hinges, put em on, that bolt em onto that metal sheet thing it looks, then you welded that brown sheet thing on the door? Thats what it looks like am I right or wrong?

    No the only difference between these hinges and the ones on suicide doors is they go full 90 degrees....mine opens about 65 to70......and to answer blazindubz yeah thats what i did...i welded that piece to the door because without it it flexes to much i want my doors to be solid so when some jackass hangs on it it does break off....
