Anyone use hard top hard lower doors and soft uppers?

Do you have any pics? Thank you. Reason im asking is because i just bought a hard top and i found a great deal on half doors and soft uppers. I cant find a good set of full doors for under 500. Just curious. Thanks

Here is my '97 TJ Sport, 5 Speed. Exactly what you are talking about, although the colors my not be what you are looking for. I love it though.

I sort of advise against it because they don't seal well up against the hard top. You'll get about a 1 inch gap between the door and the hard top. I'm sure you can modify it some sort of way, but full steel doors are hands down your best option. I found a pair for $300 that had no rust on them at all. You might want to just keep looking, but that's all up to you.

No seal problems here. I love the set up myself.

You probably don't have seal problem because you drive a TJ, and he's refering to a YJ. Most YJ's didn't come with the curve cornered windows, instead they came loaded with the rectangular ones. There are several threads in here talking about this moneypit. I know recently it there was one that had a page worth of replies. I'll see if I can find it.
