Help with back door shock

On my 89 Wrangler one of the back door shock brackets is broken.the end of one that mounts to the inside on the body broke the whole bracket off the body..i can still open the back door with only one shock on it but have to hold it up about the last 18 would i mend this bracket back on the body ??? alot of JB WELD held for a few days but then broke off again...OR should i leave it as is OR just buy a soft top and junk the hard top..thanks for any input.. .Joe

I'm always going to encourage people to run a soft top, but that's just me.

To all who serve, Thank You.

I personally would leave it as is, but thats because i dont use my back door all the time, you could always usea prop stick to hold it open.

Just my .02 worth.
