Re: Hard door comparisons TJ/YJ/CJ different/similar??
JEEPN is right. I did some research as I'm dying for softdoors on the TJ.
The YJ, CJ, and TJ all share the same profile from the window down the front door frame and back to the bottom far edge of the door. From there up, its a different world.
The TJ doors look like the YJ and CJ hardtop and Best-top doors, but they have a slightly different arc where the upper door meets the lower door (on the soft-doors, but same applies to harddoor).
The strikers are lower and look like a U-bolt on the TJ, while the YJ uses the roung pin design.
The difference in window rake is made by expanding the bottom of the window forward. The back remains the same.
Besides, why don't you just order the YJ two piece doors? They're cheaper.
