Check out YJ doors, and maybe the hatch as well. Otherwise, craigslist, but there are many more tops without glass than glass without tops on craigs.

Welcome to WF!

I cant remember on '80 but pretty sure you have a door striker. If so you need to look for later style CJ doors. And as already stated YJ doors are a good option. Craiglist will be your best bet without having to worry about shipping but eBay is another option. There are good deals to be found, just less of them.

As far as your rear hatch you will probably pay 60%+ the cost of a used top for just the hatch....if you could find one. I sold my hard top last year for $350 which is middle of the road on price. But you may get lucky.

I have an 80 cj7, it's much easier to find the correct doors than it is to retro fit the jeep for newer cj or yj doors.

I wasn't sure if the 80 had the older doors like my 76. They are a lil harder to find.

Yeah, I'm not sure when they changed the door styles, I'm thinking 82? But my 80 has the older style.
