I want to replace my soft half doors with full metal.
 
I want to replace my soft half doors with full metal but I can't find any.

I have a 98 wrangler. Junkyards don't have them, Craigslist doesn't either. I don't trust Ebay.

So would you guys have some suggestions?

You might try places like 4 Wheel Drive Hardware or Quadratec. They will be expensive but they will be new. You'll also probably have to piece them together because I don't think they come complete.

It's that or eBay my friend. Sorry. I got mine off eBay, but I picked them up in person.

The bad news is that full steel doors are difficult to find. If we have them already, we tend to keep them. We even tend to keep them when we junk our Jeeps. Because you never know when they will come in handy.

The good news is that you can use any doors from a TJ, so any year from 97 to 2006.
They can be found on Craigslist or at junkyards, just not easily.

Well, I can understand your apprehension about using EBAY, but personally, I've had Very Good Luck! I've got close to 450 transactions with 100% Positive Feedback, after being with EBAY for 10 years now. Haven't been burned... yet! (Knock on wood!). The trick is, to find a Seller that has Excellent Feedback Numbers, up in the High '90's or 100%, with a High Number of Transactions, like a Top Rated Seller or Power Seller. This is a business for these folks, and they're in it for the Long Haul, so they WANT Positive Customer Feedback. Look for ones that have "BEST OFFER" next to the listing, and you may save yourself a few bucks in the process. Make sure you compare Shipping Costs with other Sellers, to see if they're about the same. There are a LOT of Sellers out there, and they ALL want your Business, so Shop Smart! Here's a sample that I found on EBAY just now:

If nothing pops up, type in TJ FULL DOORS in the long box at the top, just under the EBAY logo. You should get about 28 Results.

If you'd still rather look elsewhere, try these two places that have dealt with Jeeps for years. You'll find their Ph #'s at the bottom of their links. Give 'em a call, and you might just find yourself some new doors.

Best of Luck!

Cheers!
