jeep doors need answers!

just picked up a 1989 jeep wrangler laredo and it has the half doors on it and i found a set of doors for it that came off a 2000 wrangler that have the vinyl windows for a hard top the jeep we got didn't come with any windows so my question is will these doors work on my 1989

I'd have to say no, different body styles.

Hopefully someone with more experiance will chime in.

you can get a new set for like 200 bucks. it might just be worth it to get those and not have to worry about it or try and modify the ones from a tj

I have a set of half doors and full doors for my jeep. I use the half's in the summer with my soft top, and the full doors in the winter with my hard top. that's the system I prefer. you can also get sliders for your half doors that will fit into the hard top, if money or storage is a problem. full doors can cost around 1000 dollars 4 a good set.

You have to use a door striker from a TJ to make it work. Otherwise the door opening is the exact same..

Does your jeep have an OEM hardtop?

I will add that with tj door tops you do have to cut and weld one of the dowels that goes down into the door, they all line up except the back one. Or.. for a temp fix you can take your inner door panels off which will allow the 3rd pin to rest on the door instead of in the hole.

This is how you'll have to make it work in the mean time.. you'll have to adjust your hard top and windshield probably for it to line up

Take a door panel off like I showed in my pic and test fit it.. they did make other tops and they made the door top openings different.. that way you'd have to buy door tops with the hard top so they make more money
