Ok, i have searched the forum and my computer is way slow plus i'm not real slick at finding what i need....so I thought I'd try it this way and see. Is there a better way to try to find full steel doors for my TJ besides craigslist and the for sale section on here? Doesn't ANYBODY make some aftermarket ones? I just wanna be able to roll my glass down!!! But I don't have a bajillion dollars! Who can tell me what to do? Suck it up and find fifteen hundred bucks? Also, is my jeep still safe to drive on the road if i disconnect the sway bars? I know it would be more "tippy" but other than that would it be ok? Thanks for all the advice, and thanks to all the people I've talked to on this forum. Everyone has been cool as hell.

Good luck with the doors. Hook up with a local mom and pop salvage yard and ask them to call you when a wrecked jeep comes in. No, disconnecting sway bar links for highway use is not safe. Far from it. The first time you have an emergency hard braking incident you will loose control of your vehicle, and that's just the tip of the iceberg..

No aftermarket full doors. They are difficult to find and heavy to ship. Go to car-part.com to search local junk yards (note it would help you to put your location information in. When talking about wanting parts.......maybe someone with the part will realize they are close to you)

X2 on disconnecting sway bar links! :nonono:

By a pair of disco's, (price varies so you can spend a little or a lot) or make a pair. There's some build threads on here and jeepforum.com to transform stock sway bar links to discos. As for the doors, try and stick as local as possible (CL, salvage yards) otherwise you'll just spend more on shipping. It's just a waiting game, but good things come to those who wait! I searched for 10 months for a hardtop, finally found one on CL, local, in great shape, for $300. You can also set up a search for an item on Ebay, and limit the number of responses you get by the distance your willing to travel to go get it. Again, just a waiting game. One thing I've learned, when it comes to Jeep parts, sooner or later someone, somewhere, will be selling what your looking for!

I wanted to be able to let the window down to smoke. In the winter, it's gets cold really quick with the whole window open with the soft uppers. These upper door sliders were just the ticket....$100 on craigslist, and don't have the extra weight of the full steel doors.

Why can't *I* ever find sliders for 100???? dangit!

As for disconnects, if you're not wanting to disconnect all the time for offroad, but still have sway bar control, consider the Currie Anti-rock sway bar system. JKS also has a variation on it available too (as well as selling really nice quick disconnects).
