If they are CJ5s You will have a big hole in the bottom corners.

CJ-7 doors are pretty much the same thing as YJ doors. But like Nubby said CJ-5 doors won't fit.

'86 CJ doors on a '94 YJ

I have '86 CJ doors on a '94 YJ. The paddles are the same. The window cranks are different. The gear pattern on the broaching(gears) is different. I upgraded my doors with new rubbers, rebuilt the window mechanism, replaced locks, new panels, and added the new arm rests instead of the straps. That was a great deal. Good for you. Good luck.

Incredible! If my hard doors looked like that I'd be more inclined to use them. Haha... no I won't. Topless / Doorless ALL DAY!

The early swing handles will work also.You must remove the catch stud and add a small striker plate to the body...I have '70's cj7 doors on my '90 yj.And those are Romanian AK47 leather slings cut for the door pulls

Cj7 full doors on a yj with a hard tob----------fit like a glove..striker lines up perfectly.
Rear glass from a cj7 top on my yj top-------fits great, but had to remove tire on the carrier to change closing sequence, other that that it is awesome....it is official, i am hooked and i love my little beater jeep

I promise you they didn't look like this when I got them. I sanded off 3 different colors of paint including laquers over enamel......UUUURRGGGH. Someone had cut rough plywood for panels. I think they may have been used as a back stop at a baseball diamond. here's a pic of mine during fitting, before paint.

What did the rubbers cost(and did this include everything? Window scrubbers interior/exterior, door seal?)
The locks? Did they come with new keys, our or did you rekey them to your original set?

I picked up a hardtop and full doors from an '87, and they just need a little tlc, door seals, all window scrubbers(bottom, top, and both sides), my glass rattles uncontrollably and forget about getting a pressure washer near them.

I priced out everything on quadratec, came to almost $220 buying everything in pieces, anyone seen a whole rebuild kit or anything like that?

Thanks!

I found rebuild kit on ebay for the doors. The complete kit included Door seal, inner window felt, outer scrubber, Vent window complete seal, felt window channel. For both doors I paid 159.00. No trimming, everything fit perfectly. The vent window rubber is a PITA.

I should have said that about the CJ-7 top! I have a CJ top on mine and love it. Its beefier then the YJ tops and the shocks on them never die. To solve the spare tire and rear hatch opening problem, I took my spare off for now but bought a CJ-7 swing out tire carrier for $20. Just waiting on another buddy to come down to get it!
