YJ Hardtop Problem

I had just recently purchased a hardtop for my 92 Wrangler. When I purchased my Wrangler it had the wrong Soft top on it for one, and it had soft doors. When I had put my hard top on, my soft doors didn't fit in to the groove of the hard top, so the door sticks out. The top fits perfect and needs no adjustment. Do I have doors that fit on a TJ Wrangler?

Not sure about whether they are for a TJ or not without some picture of them on the jeep. I've had some doors before that didn't fit well and have adjusted them to fit by bending them a little. If they are too tall they can be bowed out a little it just depends on how far off they are.

X2 on the pictures. But soft doors are adjustable - did you bend them in?

Yeah, I would try bending the three prongs that go into the door. As Navy Chief calls it, try the bend and tweak method.

on top back corner?

I also have a 92 w/ hard top. I have a sunrider soft top for summer as well. It has the rounded cornes on the half top doors, and they do not fit with the hard top at all. You will need the hard doors, or the hard uppers with sliders.

On my doors, I have them adjusted as low as they can go and I cannot move them anymore.

I believe you need the hard upper doors with the little curve in it.

Thanks, The guy I bought the top off of, had that stuff for sale too but, I passed because one I didn't have the money and two, I want full doors. So if anybody has hard doors for sale, for a decent price in the $100 to $300 range in the Miami Valley, email me.

There is a guy in Delaware, Ohio which is just North of Columbus, he sells CJ parts, but he has doors that will fit your YJ. His name is Rudy, and his # is 614-203-1947
