Door Latches

I have some old doors I have yet to use. Since I am getting a top, I want to get them on the Jeep. They are full steel doors, with a hook-style handle, not paddle. They have a latch similar to a regular building door, not the pin-style. I was wondering what the associated latch looks like on the tub, and where I might get these.
TIA

Ask and ye shall receive:



As to where to get 'em... Heaven only knows...

I'd just used a piece of angle iron...

Re: Door Latches

Odds are they are still there and you just have gotten use to them being there. I have never seen a CJ 7 that did not have them unless they were removed.

Re: Door Latches

I had soft doors when I bought the Jeep.

Re: Door Latches

My '79 -7 has factory soft top/doors. The latches for the doors catch on the vertical piece for the roof support. I have 2 holes in the door frame where the hard door latch attaches to. I would post a pic. but I took the top off and put the bikini on for the summer. Thanks for the tele #. I'm gonna giv em a call to see wazzup wit those strikes.
