Door hinge pins on a 2000 Wrangler

I need to get new door hinge pins on my 2000 Wrangler (full doors). I got the old pins out. They look exactly like the pins from a 1998 Wrangler.

When I go to any auto parts retailers, or the dealers, I am told that there is no such replacement without purchasing the entire hinge assembly (which I do not need or want). In fact, I am told that the pins cannot be removed, even though I removed them OK.

I am rather confused here about what to do. Any advise?

Because the ones that I have are badly corroded and in some cases damaged.

Quadratec is telling me that they can't even find just the pins. This seems really odd to me since I was able to remove mine without having to take off the entire hinge assembly.

Sounds like they broke good. When my doors were stuck I beated on the pin with a hammer and it never came out. There not suppose to probably that is way no one carries them

I broke one of my half door hinge pins taking them off. Too much torque, not enough pb blaster. Damn. Other three came off easy. Do I have to buy a whole hinge set now? I'd rather knock the pin out and just use a steel bolt and nut if I can.

I am going to compare the hinge pin from a 1998 Wrangler to the one that I managed to remove from my 2000 Wrangler. If it fits, I am using that instead of getting an entire hinge assembly.

Dorman 38447 is the hinge pin kit that is supposed to fit YJ's. I am considering getting a set before winter BC i snapped the ends off of both pass side pins when I removed the nuts to take the doors off. Cheap too.

Thanks terpsmandan. That is exactly the information that I was looking for. I just ordered mine. I am assuming that they will do the trick.

So, I received and installed the pins. Perfection!

I am childish enough that I want to call the dealers that told me that this was impossible, but maybe I'll wait for the next time they try to rip my off.
