you can get half doors from from Bestop. someone on here got the door elements with the enclosure kit and it looks really good, just like factory (atleast in his pics).


of you could always find some nice used half doors that match you color. or even if they dont match, you can always get them painted. might be costly though.

and the full doors, those will be really hard to find a nice pair. it took me like 6months to find full doors that werent all rusted out.

when ever i was looking for them, everyone told me that if i ever any full doors that are nice that i need to snatch them up, even if they arent the right color.... but when i went to the paint shop they said it was gonna cost like 1000 to paint them... 1000 to paint two damn doors!!!! stupid. so i end up just selling them.

i lucked out though. i got a great deal on the full doors and a nice hard top for 600. and i sold them both of 1000 so i was happy hahahaha

I've got them all and personally I run soft doors year round. Hard halfs aren't any better than full softs in my opinion and full doors without a hardtop are pretty much a waste unless you want a roll down window...

my vote would be full doors. Few reasons for this. 1st if you get winter weather you can't scrape soft windows. You want some air you roll the window down, vs having that soft widow flip flopping all over the place. The hard door also provides some extra protection in a crash. Go on sites like craigslist.org to find them.

You dont have to scrape the soft windows, let your rig a few minutes with the heater on and a quick pop with the back of your hand and the stuff falls right off..

I tend to run full hard doors and a hard top during the winter months, and Bestop canvas 1/2 doors and a bimini during the summer months.

I'd go with hard doors, but that's just me. I have a soft top and hard doors...if I put the top on correctly (I really should have done a better job before this winter...) it doesn't leak much of anything. And it's just my personal opinion...but I hate soft doors. Be it half or full soft, I just can't stand the look of them. Can't stand hard tops, and can't stand soft doors. Just my opinion though. Plus I like the ability to roll my windows down.

you can always look on criagslist.org or ebay.com
i think finding some nice half doors would be the cheapest. but finding nice ones that are the same color might be a challenge.

or those are the doors elements and you can buy the enclosure kit. and it looks and works just as good as the factory half doors.
