    With the way the rear tires stick out past the wheel wells, I can’t figure how the doors slide rearward to open. I had a ’69 DJ-5A in high school and recall there not being a lot of clearance between the door and the rear quarter panel. Otherwise, pretty cool looking DJ.

    That’s a good point. It seems to me the door is swinging out a little, as if there’s nothing guiding it from the bottom or side.
