Default quick release doors?

So has anybody ever fabricated a Jeep style quick release door?
Or is the stock doors to heavy?
I take my doors off eveey summer, its quite a chore, definitely need assistance every time.
Just wondered if this was a possibility.
Thx

The Scout II door with everything weights in at 100lbs. Well darn close to it,.

You can get tube doors. You pull your doors with the hinges and then bolt in the tube doors. They use a leaf spring bushing as the hinge. You would have to fab up some cloth/vinyl skins to keep the mud out of the cab.

Don't tell my wife, but I use one of those giant inflatable yoga balls to install my doors. Just need to set the air pressure to the right level and then balance them on top. They roll right in without needing help.
