hard top doors with soft top

i recently looked about buying a soft top for my jeep. but i had a question about my doors. will the soft top would fit on my hard top doors?? i have saw jeep with soft tops with hard top doors they have a little black plastic piece all the way around the top of the doors..... the guy at the 4 wheel parts store said that he didn't know the name of it and he couldn't order them. can anybody tell me what they are called or even better where i can find them.

They're all over ebay. Door surrounds. Yes, you'll need them.

Edit: Just checked, not as many on there as there used to be... maybe because it's winter.

Anywho - for your viewing pleasure: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/JEEP-...Q5fAccessories

Make sure you get the knobs.

you'll need the surrounds for the soft top anyway.
without them you may as well have a safari top.
you cant seal the side widows or top to door without them.

should fit fine, they changed a couple things, but as long as you're installing all the hardware together you should be fine.
i know they changed the rollbar bracket, and tailgate bar at somepoint, ive heard about the header bar but i couldnt confirm that one.
so long as all your parts are from an 06 it should fit just fine.

Yeah, once you have it in your hands and near the Jeep it becomes self explanatory. The door surrounds will be the easiest part, so simple a caveman could do it.

Sorry bro, I missed your post #16 - I thought you were still talking about the door surrounds. Good luck.

you'll just have to pony up the cash for the brackets, but by "special" they really mean Torx. you can go to the hardware store and get a screw to fit the bracket once you get it, Torx or otherwise.
