Not without of modification. The door pins are different. The hinges are not at the correct level either.

If they were supposedly for a 2000 TJ, I'd be demanding your money back or busting someone's knee caps...

They will work fine. I am running CJ7 doors on my TJ right now. Look at my avitar or jeep profile picture those are the CJ7 doors. The A pillar angle, door shape, hinge pins, and hinge position are all virtually the same. All you need to do is adjust the door for proper gap all the way around, add mirrors, and convert either the striker or door latch so the tub and door are the same. The striker is easy to make with some 1x1 angle iron about 3" long.
Now having said that I would not pay anywhere near TJ door prices for a set of CJ7 doors.

Ggg nailed it on the head, they fit... sort of

How Too fit CJ/YJ doors on a TJ - ORJ4x4

There's a nice guide on how to modify the doors to work. The only problem that I'd be really annoyed with is the window crank.

Lol, yes I found that out after the fact. The window crank hits the dash so you can't roll up or down the window with the door closed. Unless you modify the crank by removing the knob. Since my doors are for trail and winter salt use I don't mind.
