interchangeable doors

I know a lot of doors can fit jeeps made in different years as long as they are the same style (i.e TJ wrangler 97-06 etc.). Just want to make sure that doors from a 2004 Jeep wrangler 4.0 cylinder will fit a 2005 jeep wrangler rubicon before I spend the money on them. Anyone have a problem with doors not fitting or will these doors work on my rubicon?

They should work just fine. Body design is the same.

Thanks, just bought them on ebay so I hope they work. Another quick question: The full steel doors didn't come with keys, can I have keys made at the dealership where I bought my jeep or should I go to a locksmith?

the dealership might be the cheaper solution. some locksmiths will charge more than you spent on the doors

I would price shop both u know how stealerships can be. Besides the dealership will most likely want to swap the locks (different key from Ignition) Locksmith can usually re-key the cylinders (all 1 key).

If you still have the other doors, remove the handle assembly and install it on the new doors. If they are damaged or missing go with what the others said.

When I bought my other set of doors I carried them to a locksmith. He can rekey your new doors to match ignition and other doors. Dealership will suggest replacing them all to match including your ignition, or atleast all doors.
