Door panels cracking?

Hey there. My door panels are cracking, starting at the top near the window, and continue to split...

Anyone know what causes this?

My passenger side is cracking a bit too. It has about a 2 inch crack that started up by the window but luckily it has not gotten any longer. Cheap ass plastic.

An old time fix: Drill a small hole at the end of the crack to keep it from going any further.

I think it's from the doors flexing when they're opened. I noticed on my brother's 68 bronco that the sheet metal inner door panels are cracked in the same place as my jeep. They have similar door structure.
