Before I drive to the otherside of grand rapids to pick these up I thought I would make sure they would fit.
The doors are full doors off a 79 cj7. Mine is a 1985. My old doors had the paddle handles and these dont. Will they still fit with the hardtop?

thanks for any help

Different latch setup I think. Do you have strikers on your tub for the latches?

Yeah I still have them. I wasnt sure if the pins were different heights or if the lines are even the same.

The old doors do not use pins. They latch to a flat plate that attaches to the tub. They will fit with the hardtop, but you'll have to deal with the striker issue.

FYI, YJ doors are basically the same as CJ doors if you are having trouble finding a set. The trim and mirrors are the only real difference.
