ID a door for me

I inherited the lower portion of a set of soft doors and now want to find the upper portion. Its not a Bestop so I'm assuming it was made by SteelHorse. Can anybody ID these doors for sure so I can find the uppers for them?

thanks

Re: ID a door for me

I can't say for a fact what they are. But I can say that besttop used to make them since the guy I works with has those doors with both pcs. They are old but still have the tags but no other markings. They (besttop) told him they no longer make any of the parts or sell them.(he was looking for uppers since the windows are pretty yellow)

I also think other companies used to make them too but haven't seen them in a "few" years.
Sorry I can't help more.

Thanks Dirt, that helps some... I may have to swap somebody who only wants the lower halves for something a little more recent.

Yep, old besttop. Used to have them too. Gave them to a buddy who wanted lower doors. He may still have the uppers, but they have been re-welded a couple of times and are beat-up. I can ask if you just have to have them. Those doors do not fit any of besttop's tops anymore, they stopped making that model a long time ago.

Re: ID a door for me

Unfortunately you wheel what you got... I'm still looking if you want to see if they are still around. That little bit of gap sure lets in a LOT of cold these days, even for Mississippi!
