Hard door options for CJ7

Well it seems kinda silly to be discussing hard doors now that the nicer weather is here. However, I am searching for a set of hard doors to fit my fiberglass CJ7. Original CJ doors in decent shape are as rare as hens' teeth and new doors just cost so darn much, so I'm considering YJ doors. I recall reading somewhere YJ doors will fit a CJ7. If this is true, can someone confirm? Will the bolt on striker plates available from 4 Wheel Hardware work with the YJ doors? TIA.

Yes, the 4WDrive Hardware Post type striker will work just fine, as will YJ doors. I've both the "Screen Door" type and the "Paddle" handle type and each fits fine on my fiberglass body.

Re: Hard door options for CJ7

I have a related question ... will a hard top of a YJ fit a CJ7 ... it seams other than the way the rear opens the tubs are the same basic dimentions?

Re: Hard door options for CJ7

Yup...just in case you guys wanted more confirmation. I've run a YJ hard top on a CJ-7 and I'm currently running YJ full & half hard doors on my CJ-7 (CJ doors need some TLC and new handles at the moment).
