New half doors

I bought some used half doors off of a 97 wrangler and they dont seem to fit my 01 perfect. When I close them I have to lift up on the door so it will latch.

Does this year door not work with my model?

So it is normal to have to adjust the latches? Is there drilling involved or are the latches meant to move up and down with a screw driver?

yes. every door is somewhat different. adjust the peg on the door jam. should be an allen bolt in the middle of the peg. i have a yj so a tj might be different.

Yep, TJ's have a loopy thing not a peg, but it should be adjustable to catch the door.. All TJ doors are interchangeable.

Your hinge pins may need adjusting as well - ten years of heavy doors can bend those pins a bit.
