Anyone ever remove the two front doors? Is it a real PITA?

Itís way easier than I thought it would be. I did fine with just a simple set of shims from Harbor Freight. Those linked guides above were all I used for reference too. The only thing Iíd suggest is not doing it if itís cold/freezing, or youíll surely break the clips.

Only bad thing about taking doors off is you usually if not always get a rattle or a creak you didn't have before.

So have some extra clips on hand just in case, and try to put everything back the best you can.

Some people dont mind rattles and such, they drive me crazy.

Good point. I made sure to test that as best as I could by banging the door lightly to find any rattles, then just zip tie the loose bundles of wire if there are any.
