Actually it's a Diving Officer pin, it would be a Master Diver pin if it was silver.

Do the factory upper doors fit or do you have to buy the specially made ones?

($325 seems pretty high for an upper door set)

Actually, if you were to buy the Factory Upper Windows, they run close to $500 a set. I don't believe that they would fit the Bestop Doors. The Bestop Upper Door Windows, have three round posts that slide into three holes in the Tube Doors. The front and rear posts have an Adjustable Slider, to Adjust the Window tilt front or back, to allow for a good fit and seal.

Cheers!

I have a set of front doors, both upper and lower, do you know if these upper doors would fit your lower doors? The doors are from best top and the upper portion looks like what you have. Thanks for any info and great work.

Can you post a pic of your Lower & Upper Doors? I'm assuming you have the Highrock Element Tube Doors. If there are three round holes in the top tube of your doors, then the Upper Doors should fit in there. The Element Enclosure Panels, just attach to the Tube Doors, via 2 hooks on the bottom of the panel, and are held together by the mirror and door latch.

Thanks!

Cheers!

Looks good. It's nice to see a JK with half doors. Why doesn't jeep offer the JK's this way? Or do they and I have just never seen one?

I was up on line earlier at jeep.com and was playing with build your own and half doors came up as an option. Looks like it can be ordered that way.

I just tried that too! Funny thing is, it doesn't specify what the Half Doors are. When you look at Jeep Accessories, it lists the Half Doors with a Bestop Part Number. When you cross that number, it comes back to the same Part Numbers that I bought from Quadratec, which is the Bestop Highrock Kit.

Hmmmm! Is DC not going to make Stock Half Doors anymore? Was there a problem with the Half Doors on past Models, that had too many "Water Leak Complaints"? Was the Full Door, DC's answer to fixing Water Leak Complaints?

To me, Half Doors make a Jeep look like a Jeep, while the Full Doors make a Jeep look like a Truck. I wanted the Doors that they showed me in the brochure...



If and when I can find a set of Factory Stock Half Doors... at a reasonable price... then I'll get them. Until then... my Bestops will do just nicely!

Cheers!

Sorry! I forgot to include your Quote on my last post.

I've seen a few of the earlier year JK's with Factory Half Doors on the Forums, but nothing when I went shopping. I checked with my Dealer, and they don't offer the Factory Half Doors anymore. Not sure why. But... you can go to the Parts Department, and "Build Your Own", piece by piece, but it's ridiculously expensive. For example, "ONE" Outer Door Shell, is $900!

Last month, I placed a Want Ad for Factory JK Half Doors on Craigslist, in four major cities in Texas. I received one response from a Gent in Tenn, and he was asking $2,500 with the Upper Doors included. WOW! I'll keep looking!

Cheers!

I've got a tj but I was just curious. I had never seen a jk with half doors until this post and then 2 days ago I saw a red 4 door with half doors. It looked good. IMO, the jk's look better with half doors. I think jeep should offer them this way like they did with the tj's.

I hear ya KC. I'm not sure when exactly, that Chrysler quit offering the Half Doors, but I didn't see them on ANY of the Jeep Dealer Lots I visited. NADA! I LOVE 'em! I'm "HOPING" that Chrysler starts making them again soon. I heard that MAYBE... something is in the works within the next month. We'll see! I'd like to have a set of the Factory Half Doors, and keep these as spares, but I'll wait until the price comes down a lot lower.

Like the Dual Tops, Chrysler should have also offered Dual-Doors as an option. I'd have bought the Dual-Doors if they had been offered. To me, Full Doors for the Winter Season, and Half-Doors for the rest of the year!

HEY FIAT & CHRYSLER..... YOU FOLKS READING THIS???

Cheers!
