Doors don't seem to fit

So I got these "1/2" doors as part of the deal when I bought my 94 YJ. They were in the back seat with a Safari Top. The paint even matches--- but the doors seem off....

The door jam does not meet up but the bottom of the door seems like it wants to align....

????

I may be wrong but it looks like you have a set of doors off of a tj.

Different doors seem different, I wonder why they were in the back seat? You could probably use them and use a shim on the hangers, but you will probably have a gap at the bottom of the door to flush the door with the belt loop destroyer.

I think JWhite is right. The latch mechanism looks the same as my TJ

how much adjustment room is there? I tried loosening up the star bolts on the door hinge with a ratchet and they won't budge

what? man? The problem is not with your door hinge it's with your door itself. The only way that door will fit is with a longer hinge screw on the door itself and a shim, and you will most likely have a gap at the bottom of the door where it meets the tub of the Jeep.

you are correct--- when I attempted that-- I was still in the mindset that the doors belonged with the jeep---

Even if you shimmed them it doesn't look like Pin will fit through the hole.
