Where to get the old style CJ hard door handles???

My handle was working but kinda had a problem. So i unscrewed it today, to find out that the cheap pot metal they molded the handles out of was just worn out and crack everwhere. So where can i get one of these? Anyone have any idea. This is for the 81 and down cj7 hard doors.

These things are thicker than flies... they are not much else than screen door handles... right down to the square shaft between the two halves. Me, I go to my local hardware store..

I had good luck shopping an RV repair place. Usually they have parts hanging on hooks. You just have to wander, see what you can find.

Re: Where to get the old style CJ hard door handles???

I was looking at my key chain one day, and realized that I have 2 keys for my doors on it.. It took me a couple days to figure out how I had gotten the second on there, and it just happened that it was not another key for my door, but for a cabinet at work.. It had the exact same handle, and the key was exactly the same as well.. Even had the same number stamped on the keys..

Not that it really matters anymore, both my locks are completely seized, so I'm due for another set myself...

I got mine from 4wd hardware. Also due to driving out of the garage with the hardtop open, I got a rear handle from them too. The nice thing is they are all keyed the same. I almost got rid of the original door key but luckily found it when I remembered that it also unlocks the spare tire lock. [img]images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]

Re: Where to get the old style CJ hard door handles???

Thanks for all the ideas. Is Kmart still open i thought they went under. I guess i have to drive by the mall area and see if they are still around.

Leve, i thought the same thing when i saw the square stock. So i am off to the hardware store monday, but i have to have a lock or i wont have hard doors long.

RV places sound interesting and now that i think about it, my father in laws camper has the same handle on some of the latches.

My biggest thing is it has to match, i am kinda nuts about things looking right.

Thanks everyone.
