Can this be done?
 
I am meeting a guy to trade tj half doors for tj full doors. I have a couple questions about this before I meet him for the swap
1. Are the hinges for half doors and full doors interchangeable?
2. Are the lock cylinders for half doors and full doors interchangeable? And if so, what is involved in doing this?

Thanks

The half doors fit the same as the full doors. So the full doors will fit where your half doors were with no modifications.

It is far less trouble to have the door key cylinders matched to your jeep.

Looks like you have a soft top as well, don't even bother matching the lock cylinder your windows unzip locking the door will do nothing. I have never once stuck my key in my door lock and probably never will, no need.

I never lock them now, but I'm about to put a hardtop on. The added security will be nice. I'm on my 3rd stereo in my jeep

I had my xj robbed twice in NY and my Dakota broken into once, one of the many reasons I moved to VT...People suck.
