Door Swap.

OK so I put a thread here and on another forum or two and craigslist wanting to trade the 1/2 doors off my 2012 JKU 4dr for a set of Full Steel Doors. I was planning a swap for swap, sounds fair to me. But I received a couple of messages asking if the swap was full door and some cash for 1/2 doors. Are 1/2 doors really worth that much or is it just that time of the year? I have a deal pending for an even swap and I’m not going to back out on him regardless.

I would think that a straight swap is fair, I would never put money with my full doors for the half doors. That said I wish I had some half doors. Be sure you include the door surrounds as well as you will no longer be needing them.

How does the Full Steel doors mate up with the soft top. I though they used the same door surrounds, just to make sure we are talking about the same thing it is the black park around the door seals it that screws to the cage.

this right?

I was under the impression they are the same for 1/2 or full steel doors

If anything, price wise, the full doors should cost more if you were to buy them from the dealer. As far as demand, there are definitely more full door out there than half doors. So I guess with supply v demand, half doors would be worth more. An even swap is definitely a fair deal.
