wing windows on hard doors

My hard doors do not have wing windows. I am guessing that the older ones didnt. I can get a set of wings and all the parts from a wreck. Is it possable to use the wings out of a later model door. Oh yeh my jeep is a 80 cj7

Why bother, I have wind wings windows and they are useless, I live in FL and I never use them, they do not help.

Re: wing windows on hard doors

Take a measurement. The triangle windows on my doors, same for a CJ7, come in one piece with the foward guide for the large square window. Kind of looks like an A with one long leg. Take your's out and compare with the one in the donor jeep. They come out and go in easy. When my YJ was broken into one of those windows were smashed. I was able to replace it with a new one for about $80 from a dealer. GOt the old one out and the new one in in under an hour.

I have seen this done, and there was even a writeup in a magazine a few years ago about it. Can't remember the mag or even the year though, sorry. If I come across it, I'll let you know.

Re: wing windows on hard doors

Just something to think about...
Wing windows add one more easy entrance for thieves. i had my Jeep broken into through the wing windows. If I had the choice, I'd get rid of mine just to make it that much harder to break into. The "locks" on the wing windows are a joke, and once they are open you can easily reach the door handle or door lock rocker and let yourself in.

Yep, and if you have a padded dash in a CJ, vent windows that open don't work, they hit the dashpad.
