[16]Just heard on the news that the rcmp is going to start giving
out $109 tickets to jeep owners for driving with out doors. What the fuck is with that. They say that it is a dangerous, u may be thrown
from the jeep if involved in an accident.

Its only really legal if you vehicle came from the factory with doors as an option -- older CJs etc

Most cops are lenient about it if you mount up some sideview mirrors, but its always been illegal.

newer YJ/TJs doors were factory, unlike the older ones where they were an Option...

That said I've drive my Toy to/from the trail without doors or sideview mirrors. But I take the back way and its not a daily driver.

I drive about 165 kms a day in and out of town and i see everyday a guy in a yj or tj with no doors on whatsoever .The thing the cops are getting down on are the fact that people are not running mirrors on these trucks!Brackets are available to relocate the mirrors and that will pass most of the time and keep the coppers off your necks![cheers]

Sounds like the RCMP have a new cash cow. An extra $109 here, another $109 there. I could only see a cop bugging somebody about it if they were really bored or just to be a Nazi prick.

I can find the section and all that crap if you want but I recall having this same conversation on "The other <s>bored</s> board"
