What to Look Out for When Buying Ford Bronco Doors?
Trail Doors vs Tube Doors vs Halo Doors
When it comes to Ford Bronco doors, you have a range of options to choose from, but the three most popular options are trail doors, tube doors, and halo doors.
Ford Bronco trail doors provide increased visibility and airflow, perfect for off-roading adventures, while still offering some level of protection against impacts and other debris such as branches or leaves.
Trail doors are usually more customizable and can be equipped with various inserts to make them look even more special.
Tube doors feature a sturdy tubular steel or aluminum framework, striking a balance between protection and an open-air feel.
Steel tube doors are likely the best at impact protection, but they do let in quite a bit of air and protect fairly poorly against dirt.
Halo doors, on the other hand, replace the lower section of the factory doors, providing a distinctive half-door appearance while retaining the upper section. These are also often known as half-doors or lower-half-doors.
Protection and Build Materials
Most customers are interested in buying Ford Bronco doors because they want the added peace of mind that comes with knowing that there is something between you and the environment at all times.
If you want maximum impact protection, steel tube doors are likely the best. If you want just minor protection, you can go for fiberglass doors as well.
Fiberglass doors are good for splash, mud, water, and dirt protection, but they are nowhere near as effective when it comes to impact protection, so do keep that in mind.
Lastly, aluminum Ford Bronco doors are usually a blend of fiberglass and steel because they are not as strong as steel, but are much lighter than steel.
Functionality and Convenience
You should also pay close attention to go buying doors that are both functional and convenient, especially if you tend to spend a lot of time in your Bronco.
For example, if you love the feeling of air passing through the cabin while driving, it would be better to go for something like trail doors without inserts or tube doors while halo doors or trail doors with inserts don’t really offer all that much space between the gaps.
One other thing to keep in mind is to go for doors that can easily be installed or removed as most people like to switch between regular Ford Bronco doors and aftermarket doors.
