Yes, the Fronts will fit both a 2-Dr and 4-Dr. Here is a pic of my 2-Dr with Full Doors, as I'm assuming you have:
Now here's a pic of my 2-Dr with the Half Doors:
The Half Door Kit, consists of Half Doors, Interior Door Panels, and Upper Doors (Windows)
. The Half Doors hang onto the Hinges, just like the Full Doors do, but are much lighter. There are no Roll-Up/Electric Windows in the Half Doors. Instead, the Upper Doors just pop onto the top of the Half Doors, to make a Full Door look. The Windows are Plastic like the rear Windows, and Zip Down to open. If you have Power Locks on your Full Doors, you can have your Dealer configure the Half Doors Wiring Harness to operate with Power Locks as well. Mine do. I believe it's a $100 Option per door.
How much are they asking for these? Just Ball-Parking it here, but if they're asking about $3,500-$4,000 for the Unlimited Door Kit, then that's about the going rate right now. Then again..... the going rate is whatever you're willing to pay, if you want them bad enough. FYI, I paid $2K for my 2-Dr Kit.
If you're interested in them, make sure to check that you're getting the FULL KIT
, with everything I listed above. BTW, if it's the Unlimited Half Door Kit, you're most likely getting all four Doors and Uppers. You could very easily sell the Rear Doors on the Forums or EBAY/Craigslist.
FWIW, the Half Doors have only been on the market within the last month. They came with some JK Wranglers with Soft Tops, but were not available as an Option until just recently. They kind of disappeared after Chrysler went Bankrupt last year. Chrysler JUST
started making them again. I just installed mine about three weeks ago, after waiting for them to come in from Chrysler for 2-1/2 months.
EDITED TO ADD:
I just looked at your profile, and noticed you have a Black 2-Dr Sahara. This might save you a few $$$
on Painting. All Doors come Painted Black already. You may have to have it Clear Coated a bit more, in order to have your Body and Door Colors match, but it won't be as expensive as getting them Painted from scratch!
Best of Luck!
