My house is on a hill and our driveway is somewhat steep. The stock 2014 Wrangler doors would often catch my leg, especially if getting out while holding gear, etc. These door stops fixed that issue...with a little care/patience, they hold the door 1/2 open...failing that, they stop the door about 1/4 open. Note also, the wind doesn't grab hold of the door and whip it open anymore.
You do give up some range of motion on your doors. They do make a little noise, note they arrived well lubed with grease. VERY EASY to install...note that some of the door latch hardware in my 2014 JKU was not exactly as described in the instructions but no prob. I have yet to remove the doors on my Jeep but having installed these door stops I can see there will be NO extra work involved whatsoever...the latch lifts right out of the vehicle frame even easier that the stock strap

Beats the oem
Installed in 03 rubicon, works better than original,

If you are tired of your doors blowing/falling closed on you, these are great. Easy to install (had both on in under 30 minutes) they work as advertised, and look kind of cool, too. Also easy to disconnect if you do need to open the doors fully, or to remove the doors. Only down side is the noise, they are quite "clicky". Takes getting used to after 25 years without them.

Barely fits on a 2012 wrangler
On a 2012 wrangler it wont fit properly. The bracket that goes inside ends up disaligned because it hits a cover that runs along the door bottom border, you will either have to cut it, or live with the disalignment (which will scratch the plastic cover on the bottom and if not chequed often for properly torqued screws it has the risk of scratching the painting).
Another point, even with grease it makes a loud pop noise every time it goes through one stopping place, quite annoying and gives the appearance that the car is cheaply made, and, the disalignment stated above makes the noise worse because the bracket is not angled properly and puts up more resistance.
I would only recommend this if its necessary, as in everybody that gets in your car ends up opening the door too quickly or letting it go and hitting other cars often, otherwise, for looks or for a few occurrences, its a disappointment.
More like a 2.5/5 rating, instead of 3/5.

INSTRUCTIONS COULD BE BETTER
IT KEEPS THE DOORS OPEN
IT DOES IT'S JOB
THE INSTRUCTIONS ARE POOR, DESCRIPTION OF TOOLS TO USE WAS WRONG
