If I remember correctly, they will fit with minor modification. The weatherstripping and the latch are different between the two. I'm pretty sure that the hinges and door opening are the same based off an article in jp magazine.

Along this same thread... I have a Yj... with a Best Top. It has the half doors with the black plastic uppers that use sliding glass windows. I would like to go to full doors with roll down windows. Is the full door the same? Is the radius where the upper rear of the door meets the Best top the same as the full door frame radius?

Thanks
Mac.

I have both a TJ and a YJ, half doors for the TJ are much larger than the YJ and from what I have been told-the tubs/frames, everything are smaller on the YJ so you can't swap parts around. Your best bet is to find a local jeep group, get together with them and just ask if someone with TJ half doors would see if they fit on your YJ...won't take more than a couple minutes to show you.

you can also get cj doors from i believe 81-86, they are identical to yjs. earlier cjs have a different latch system but will fit otherwise.

for the guy asking about whether full steal doors will fit on his top, if your soft uppers have rounded rear corners than yes, if squared off then no.

Sorry...I should have clarified. My Besttop is a Hard top with removable front section. That is why I was wondering about fitment of the OEM door into that radius top.

Thanks again!
