I'm sure at the very least you will have to change the door latch and/or striker plate. Maybe hinges too. I'd think the fit will be off too but I really don't know.

92 YJ. 2.5 (temporarily) 5spd. 5" lift. 35"x14.5" Super Swamper Thornbirds.

Strikers will probly be the only thing you have to change. If it has a lever handle its the old style striker and if they are paddle style its the newer style.

If they are designed for a later model CJ7 then the only thing you will have to do is the striker plate on the top for the door latch. If they came from a CJ5, they wont fit at all, the windshield is at a different angle than the wrangler, and the door wont seal on the leading edge.
