soft upper door to hardtop compatibly?

i have a 1990 yj that came with half doors and a hardtop... i really don't want to buy another set of full doors. i was looking at the soft uppers and even the upper glass sliders. i need to know if the upper doors will seal out the rain when paired with a hardtop or do they only work with soft tops.

your wisdom is much appreciated.

Just more and more alike

But most of the time I dont care where me or my friends ash. Seeing as theres no carpet it doesnt matter to much.

I try to avoid ashing on my floor. But my friends dont they think just cause theres no carpet its a big ash tray so they can be lazy. I guess because most other people have carpet in there cars they think Im an exception
