It's warm enough to go out and work on my CJ. I have some doors and striker posts from an '85 I want to put on my 4WD Hardware body. Has anybody out there done it? I don't know what the original body looked like, but the brackets I have don't fit up flush to my body. It looks like some kind of build up is needed. Also, how do I fasten them on?

i was going to router out a spot for them in mine, and then fiberglass them in, but i ended up just using the old style doors instead...they pop right on and close tight...you'll have to paint the tub eventually anyway(trust me)..you could swap your doors for older ones...or mount the old style latches on the doors you have(i think) possibly by useing a latch assambly from a soft door...paddle on the outside, old latch on the inside...

I have a 4 wheel hardware body also and I bought there set of strikers made for there bodies. There in the section with the other fiberglass stuff. They are a little pricy, about $70, but they work good. You have to do some cutting into the body to make them fit. The kit comes with these special nuts so you can mount them in the double wall without nuts showing through on the other side, I think they were called jack nuts or something. These strikers provide a lot more support than the ones off newer newer jeeps. I used the old type handled hard doors for a while and they would pop open if you were not careful in shutting them all the way. Also they seem to put a lot of stess on the body and I was afraid it would crack the body, mabey, mabey not. Just my $.02.
