Door pockets from Jimmydaux

These door pockets are awesome! I got the Wrinkled Graphite for my gunmetal blue Cherokee Classic and they look so smooth. The install was fairly easy, just pulled the panel, made a cardboard template and drilled 6 holes, after that I just bolted it up with the supplied hardware and snapped the panel back on, voila its a beauty. I have had it on for 2 days now and already am using the pockets and drink holders for water bottles. These pockets are well built, for anyone considering these, you wont be dissappointed.

Re: Door pockets from Jimmydaux

Can you take a picture and show how close they get to the seat?



Are they held on by the plastic, or do the mount into the metal part of the door?

It just mounts to the door panel. Shouldn't be a problem concerning weight as long as you aren't dropping bricks in there........

The rods clip onto the back of the handle. Once you see the clips, they are fairly easy to remove. But be careful not to drop the door panel when they are still attached. If you do, it can snap the mounting tabs off the back of the handle. The handle is integral to the panel. So if you break those, you have to by a whole new door panel. Couple hundred bucks to replace one IIRC, and that was before the price restructuring.

Re: Door pockets from Jimmydaux

Yeah getting the panel off isnt too bad really. The plastic retainer clips that hold the metal rods in place can be a pain sometime. Sometimes Ill be able to pop them off by hand, others I need to use a screwdriver. Ive had a fair amount of weight in the pockets before with no adverse effects. I dont know if I have a picture straight down to show how close they get to the seat, but I'll see if I can drum one up. Look in the thread in the vendor forum, I believe theres one thats close to what your looking for.

Thanks for answering questions kittrell

Re: Door pockets from Jimmydaux

I installed some door pockets from JC Whitney a few years back. Although they're not as nice as those, I still love them.

Re: Door pockets from Jimmydaux

So I finally got my pockets installed. I REALLY am happy with these. Got the textured black which I think go well with the tan/black door panels. Some might ask why I didn't mount them a little further back to cover the grooves in the panel? Where the hard plastic guide at the bottom of the seatbelt comes out, if I moved it back, it rubs right there and I didn't want to rub the coating off over time. I'm happy with where I mounted them.

Okay, here's the pics...

XJ mike, Im glad you like them!! They look really good w/the black on tan. Thanks a million for posting pics up!

You can fit a powerade bottle snugly. I bet it would fit the mccafe drink fust fine.
