Buying spare door today need help

I tried searchng but couldn't find what I'm looking for. I have a 93 YJ with a passenger door that I need to replace. I found one on craigslist for what seems like a leter year door as it has the side mirrior at the hinge as opposed to on the door like my current ones. My questions are:

will it fit like the current door?

can I either sway the current driver door to a hinge mirror, I'm assuming I'd have to fill the holes the movement would leave behind or vice versa can i swap the new passenger to mtach the mirror location of the driver by just drilling the holes?

Sounds like the door you are looking at may have a mirror relocation bracket allowing them to run doorless and still have mirrors. The mirror on your existing door should bolt directly back onto the replacement door. Good luck with your project.

That is the exact bracket I have on my half doors. Should fit without a problem.

Edit: Something to look at inside the door is a crack where the small window section is. Jeep doors are prone to crack there. If the crack is small, no big deal, but if bigger, can be a pain to fix.

Ya. thats a full door with an aftermarket half door mirror on it. Looks good though, as long as you can see out of it.

Looks like when you go to use that mirror, you will be looking at the vent post in the center of the mirror all the time.

Oh, welcome back to the Jeep world, never a dull moment here.

Uhh no. Hurdler got it right, the mirror came from OEM 1/2 doors. Just like mine and it has "Jeep" written on it.
