If your '80 has a hollow sheet metal support panel right behind your door outline then all you have to do is get the post syle catch assemblies for a mid '90s Wrangler and bolt it on.

You are in the same boat as i am. Your strickers are way different then the yj's and the (I think) 82 and up CJ's. Unless your tub is newer. You should have brass plates on your door jam where factory hard doors close on. You could go cut the newer style strickers out of a newer cj and weld them in but you will loose the paint on the outside of the tub. I did see in leon rosser once that they sold something also but never really looked into it. Good luck

Yep, it will work. I just finished putting them on my '81 CJ7 with a 'glass body. You do need to get the strikers since yours is an '80. I used the striker kit from Rosser, but after seeing it, I could have made it for alot cheaper. Just order the strikers from the dealer and make your own bracket to secure it. Drill a couple of holes to match the holes in the bracket and bolt it up.

As a matter of fact, I screwed up and drilled the holes wrong on my 'glass body (too far in and too low). Rather than drill more holes in the body and weakening that much more, I decided to make a new bracket which re-located the striker up and out a quarter inch. You do have to counter-sink the holes to make sure the bolt heads don't get in the way. Got a bit at Lowe's to counter-sink into metal - made by Vermont American. Overall, not a bad job.
