LOOK!!! another door question

just traded my 1/2 doors off of my 98 wrangler for a set of full doors off a 06 wrangler...heres the problem...the passenger side fits fine, but the drivers side aint even close. it looks as if the striker is too low about 3/8 to 1/2 inch. is there any adjustments for the doors? when i put my 1/2 doors on the 06 the passenger side was close enough to close with little rubbing and the drivers side was the opposite of mine it was too low but it still closed. now that ive confused everyone back to my question is there anyway to adjust the hindges?

Adjust the striker. Simple.

You can move the striker up/down/in/out to adjust how well your door fits. It should fit snugly without having to SLAM the door. Should only take a couple of minutes to adjust each side, even for the uninitiated. Sometimes they'll need shims behind the striker; if it looks like it will, check with a local bodyshop (they'll sell them to you for cheap), or even check your local VatoZone.
