Yeah I was thinking the same thing.

Shoot me a PM and I can get you a quote on the doors, or answer any questions you have!

Anyone else know of another option that would serve my purpose for a reasonable price? Just looking to keep the rain out from time to time...nothing real fancy, but let's keep the suggestions a step above a rain suit.

(I've been keeping an eye on craigs list for a few months with no luck so far)

5 years is a long time to have the same soft uppers. i think replacement skins are only $100. shoot $100 bucks every 5 years, even at 2.5 years is a drop in the bucket compared to what we spend on other aftermarket parts, that's less then half a new tire.

sinepome I feel your full door pain. I too had only full doors at first. Wait for a good craigs list deal i got 2 sets( 1 2 piece soft, and 1 1piece softs) for $50 each Cj door will probably work with a little modification/fabrication to your latches if you get the right style handle ( paddle or flap i forget which i have.)
I have a yj with cj soft door frames. Cj skins on the lowers and tj skins on the tops. They don't match and the upper skins are a little loose. But when it rains there way easier to throw on than the 175lb steel doors. And they didn't cost $440. GL.

n00g7 Half doors + soft uppers and throw it all in the back when you don't want to use them.
04-17-2013 08:43 PM
joebarlow65 I'm in the same boat you are dropzone. I am tossing around the idea of trading my full doors for a set of halves with soft uppers. I'm also tossing around the idea of buying the soft upper kit and making my own sheet metal half doors. they are honestly super simple to make. But once you factor in the time needed to make them, and have them function correctly, your probably money ahead just paying the 400+ for the full soft door.

T2000J I have been looking for about a year . I'm done looking i am ordering them this weekend from bestop not going another summer without them.

dropzone Keeping the steel doors on during the nice months here is not an option...that would defeat the purpose I bought the jeep for. I would rather get wet every so often or pay $440 for Bestop soft doors than keep the steel doors on all the time.

In a perfect world someone would post a link for some cheapo soft doors. Don't need high quality since they won't get used much.

somis In my honest opinion, I would just keep your full doors on. I love my half doors for summertime, but that is all I have. I would kill for a real hard top and full doors after driving my 97 as a DD for 5 years now. My plastic windows are hardly visible to see through no matter how well I clean them, the zippers bust off and get stuck constantly. They are a pain in the ass to deal with. I understand you dont plan on running them all the time, but I would never recommend anyone ever spend a dime on soft uppers. On the other hand I love my steel lower halves, really cool for summertime
