full doors?

so I have half doors with soft uppers, and wanting to buy full doors. I have however not been able to find any for sale that are 1. a reasonable price and 2. the same color as my jeep. its dark blue, a factory color. I just don't want to have to repaint it or spend more than $300 for used doors plus shipping. does anybody make them new? are they priced reasonably?

go for the bulldawg fiberglass upper doors there a little pricey but you wont have to worry about color or getting POS doors that 1. keys don't match 2. bad shape.

If I had half doors the bulldawg upper doors would be the uppers I would go for, you can get them black, white, tan or primer. They have a sliding glass window. Here is a pic:

I have fiberglass uppers on my half doors, and don't like them at all. The sliders open just enough to get a little air (very little) and you definitely can't hang your arm out like you can with roll down windows. I love my half doors during the spring and fall when I can go without the uppers, but I, too am looking for a set of full doors for the winter. I've found them to be few and far between, and when you do find a decent pair, they are asking $900-$1500 for them. I don't want to spend that much either since it's something I don't really need.

agreed. its just not worth that much for some doors. if they make metal half doors, why cant some aftermarket company make metal full doors?

Take a look at the picture of mine. With the window open, the open area is 6 3/4" wide...just barely wide enough to get your Big Mac through.

wow that sucks. I'd rather fab up some steel uppers who's windows actually work better than pay 750 for a set of those. I could buy 4 sets of fabric uppers for that. is that 4 times better? I don't think so.

I put a wanted add in auto parts on Craigslist in my area for a pair and just renew it every few days. That way if someone parts one out they may see it. I have got a couple of calls in the past month, but it's people wanting $1000+ for them. It doesn't cost anything to keep renewing my wanted ad.
