Extra parts needed for half to full door swap?

I am looking to replace my half doors in my 1997 TJ with some full steel doors.

I have a soft top, so I assume I will need to swap out the door surrounds that screw to the roll bar? If so, is that something I can possible swap from the origina owner?

Anyone have a link to the door surrounds and any other parts I would need for the swap?

Thanks in advance!

No need to do anything at all to your top and the door surrounds remain in place for both door styles. You can swap back & forth between the full and half doors, all Wrangler TJ top and door combinations are fully compatible with each other. I'll be looking to go the other way, my replacement TJ I'll be getting sometime next week has full doors and I want to go to half doors.

Half doord are the way to go. TJ's look better with 1/2 doors when the top is down.

O/T Jerry, I assume (forgive me) that the search for your Jeep is pretty much a done deal? I'm sorry about that, but look forward to watching the new one get built. S.

The search is pretty much over, I've come to a phone-conversation agreement to buy a friend's 2004 Rubicon that is already pretty well built in several major areas. He has been out of town so next Saturday is the day we are planning on getting together to do the deal (barring any complications). It's an offer I can't pass up, I'm gonna owe this guy a lifetime of favors afterwards.
