Go to the "Parts for Sale" area and look. Tons of stuff on there - and yes the doors were changed in '97 so you'd probably want to find doors older than that for a direct fit.

I have THREE rust free doors, TWO are in perfect shape (passenger's side) from a 96. The driver's side rear door is a little tweaked at the bottom, but most people hercu-line that part anyway. Find out what shipping is gonna be, and Ill cut you a great deal. You wont find nicer passenger's side doors anywhere. From a 96. I cant sell anything here in thbis forum, but I am asking for something that rhymes with twenty five dollars per door. (Plus shipping) Manual crank windows,.

PM if interested.

Really? Come on now! You must be kidding!

Well, I did put some front doors from a 4 door on my 2 door XJ, but there seems to be a slight gap (about a foot) between the door striker and the door pillar. I couldnt figure out where the breeze was coming from, (or why I needed bungee cords to hold them closed) but now I know! Thank you carnuck! I would have never figured this out on my own.

I also tried to fit 2 doors on a four door XJ, and no matter how hard I tried, I couldnt get the door closed! So I just cut out that center post thingy, but the doors were STILL too short! All I ended up with was a pile of junk XJ parts Any ideas, oh wise one?

(Photo of the results of my door mod attempt.)


So when I couldnt get the four doors to align up on the two door XJ chassis, I simply shortened up the gap by backing into a tree a few times until they fit!!!You can see my complete write up on the procedure at http://www.myreallycoolfriendsspace.retard.net.... Be sure to check it out!



If you go back and read my post, genius, youll see that I said I have THREE doors. I got them from a rare model of XJ that is two door on one side, and four door on the other. Its a rare model model only offered in the country of Drooltardzania. :

Bro, you have got to be kidding me, right?



Please tell me you werent serious.

First attempt at sarcasm 4.0H.O.XJ??? I think carnuck was only trying to add helpful information to mattman's search for some new doors. I don't think he was personally slamming your knowledge of the difference between two door and four door Cherokees (obviously you did).

Back to orginal topic. Mattman, I was at Pick and Pull last Saturday and they had four Cherokees down there. One was red and the rear doors looked pretty good. I noticed because I need a new right rear door, but am not ready to paint yet.
