Half Door - How can I tell what year it\'s for?

Found someone pitching out a metal half door in the garbage. I was wondering how I can tell what year it will fit. I know it is for a Wrangler as it won't fit my scrambler. Someone said one model has pins and another latchs?

Thanks..

1. There are differences:[*]1981 and older have screen door type handles and striker type latch[*]1982 and newer have paddle latches and post capture latches.

They did not make Wranglers those years. It has to be after 1987. It's a Wrangler Half Door

They should fit '82 and later, i don't know if anybody ever made "screen door" style 1/2 doors. I know screen door style doors will fit later style jeeps (i have screen door style door on my '87) and i assume with the proper strikers you could make them fit a screen door style jeep. The first year jeep started half doors i believe was '87 with the introduction of the wrangler.
