Is ready to buy Ford's... Until I saw the price. I don't know what you all are looking at, but after market is about 1/3 the price. And I only need front doors.

Do you really believe that at 1/3 the price, the aftermarket vendor actually spent the money on R&D like an OEM?

To each his or her own but one gets what they pay for and safety should be the priority over cost.

If you're running without doors are you really worried about safety? Its a 1.5" dia cage door bolted in place of an actual door.

I don't know....but some of what I've seen suggest good quality. I figure this can be a dealer thing anyway, and I only want the two front doors....so we shall see.

I have aftermarket tube doors on my 2dr wrangler. Depends on where you live as to whether you'll use them every day. In FL, I ran them only during the winter w/ heat cranked in the am and seat heaters on and never during the summers do to the heavy afternoon showers and how humid it was in the morning. Summers were top up, full doors and ac cranked. Living in CO now, they're only on during the summers. Winters are top up, full doors, seat heaters on and heat cranked.

For me it entirely depends on where I'm going. Seeing as the 'tube doors' have no windows your vehicle is pretty accessible to anyone walking by when parked. Depending on where you go/live that may not be great. Other than that, seem like a great alternative to 'no' doors in the spring/summer/fall for me. Although, seeing as they are flat black they are probably going to get toasty in the summer, wouldn't want to lay your arm on them if the Bronco has been parked in the sun a while.

Pipe insulation fixes the hot surface.

I like this style by ADD Offroads better than tube doors. My kids always have toys, shoes, water bottles on the floor and I'm afraid things will be falling out especially on the highway. Don't really know the crash rating info.

Oh speaking of...........has anyone confirmed yet if there will be cup holders in the backseat 4D model?
