Half doors

Ok, so I have the bestop sunrider soft top (Bestop Sunrider Soft Tops - Quadratec) its all aftermarket hardware since my '00 sahara was factory hard top.

I recently came across the opportunity to purchase some half doors already painted to match and interior matched to my jeep for less than $300 and I was wondering will the half doors with uppers fit my aftermarket soft top?

I don't care if they will fit the hard top since I use my full steel doors with the hard top.

I have no experience with half doors and since not many people around me seem to be into jeeps I have no friends with half door jeeps. Not a clue how they work in terms of keeping weather out and latching.

Thanks for any help.

Yes.

Factory or bestop uppers will work with BOTH the sunrider top and the hardtop.

I has both hard/soft tops. And full and half doors. They all work together. My softop is also the bestop sunrider top.

For less than $300 you could buy them and flip them for a profit. That is cheap.

I am an automotive painter by trade.I want to let you know that even though the half doors are the same color they may not match exactly due to numerous factors. I dont know if thats a deal breaker for you but 300 is really good for a set of half doors.

Awesome. I just wanted to share that little bit of insight before you bought them and realized that the color may be off. Nice Jeep by the way.

Nice buy. I gave $400 for my black half doors just a few months ago. Doors came with dark gray interior panels. Found a guy that had spice interior panels he was going to paint. Did a swap and both of us are happy. Enjoy your half doors. I will.

What are those Element doors? Do they come with an interior side to match, or are they just metal shells? Can you post a pic of the interior Element doors?
