Jeep door year

Im trying to replace my panels on the inside of my tj full doors, how do I tell if my doors are 98-02 or 03-06? What are the differences?

If they're original doors then the same year as your jeep. Otherwise I'm not sure. I have half doors and am very happy

1997 Jeep Wrangler TJ 3" lift on 33's.

I believe the only difference is color.. Pics or your current door panels and the year of your jeep would help with identifying what your looking for

On the doors themselves the easiest distinction to see is the key lock

Smaller and black on early years bigger diameter and silver/chrome on newer years (the holes for the key lock in the door skin are also different size)

There are other differences newer ones are better reinforced where the frame around the glass attaches to the body of the door and less likely to crack the door skin at that stress point

Then YJ doors even easier to tell as they have vent Windows plus the outer handle pulls the opposite direction and the locking hasp at rear of door is completely different (post vs loop)

Not sure other than color on inner plastic panel on TJs but I can pull the 98 next to the 04 later today and do a quick comparison

Other than color I see no difference in 98 vs 04 full door interior panel. Same size shape contour and screw locations at pull handle and lower edge screws

Same dishing at interior pull handle and window crank
