A couple questions

Hey, this is my first jeep and I was wondering if they make upper door Halves for the hard top? If any one has seen them on the buy sell trade let me know cause I can't find them. Another thing is that my heater core needs replaced, would this result in a light smoking out of the heater vent? And lastly, maybe a dumb question but I see many jeeps that have suspension that seems to make the body sort of level out when on a bolder etc. Is there a certain part that could make that happen? When I am on an incline it seems to just want to flop over and it has skyjacker hydro 7000 shocks and Dakar emu on mine. Not sure about this please respond with your thought\tips please! Thank you

They do make upper door halves for the doors, but not to specifically match your hard top. You can get uppers from Bestop with the rounded back corners that are close, but it wont be a water tight seal.

Half doors are designed to be used with a soft top, not a hard top.

As far as the "light smoking" out of the heater vent, does it smell like anti-freeze? Then its a heater core replacement that is needed.

For the lift question. Lift kits are made differently. Some are designed for wheel travel, they are called long arm kits. With your YJ, does it still have the track bars installed? How about the sway bar up front? Both of these items limit the axles for the amount of drop that you get.

A YJ isnt designed to get major flex out of it with stiff lift springs and heavy shocks. You can get quite a bit of flex if you install a set of quick disconnects on the sway bar, this will let your front end pivot more. Just remember to hook it back up before you get back onto pavement or you will be unpleasantly surprised when the Jeep gets all "squirrely" going down the road.

Hope this answers some of your questions...

You can get upper hard doors that work with a hard top, but they are not cheep you can find them on ebay. Or from direct manufacturing companys. You can also use a set of Tj upper soft doors but will need a little modification for the rear pin
