1 piece doors

Just wondering if there is anywhere to get 1 piece doors with roll-down windows available for the YJ? When I got my Jeep, it had a bikini with 2 pc. doors. I hate those sliding windows with a passion! They slide open constantly and don't line up worth a crap for drive thru, the ATM, etc. I'm going to replace the bikini with a new hard top this spring, but I sure would like the 1 pc. doors instead of new uppers.
Thanks for any help!
Lynne

Yeah, that's kinda what I figured I'd have to do, Anticanman. Grandboost 98, what I have now are soft doors with sliders-I'll sell ya them (and the bikini, for that matter!) cheap when I get the hard top and halfs, but you'll need one new pane and new hardware cuz the old owner was a cheap somethingorother The one pane is plexiglass, cut to sorta fit, and the latches are gonegone. Plan is the new hardtop, and then an emergency softtop for summertime rides.

Well before you get all excited about hardtop doors. What do the door corners look like now? rounded or sort square cut?

Right now they are the squared off soft doors-that's why I'm getting a hard top and hard uppers both. Well, that and because the soft uppers are noisy and let tons of cold air in.

my soft top uppers with glass sliders are awesome. they seal Very well. the window is almost as big as a full door window. And i can take them apart in the summer, as i dont like door less with my kids in the jeep.

I'm really jealous! My upper skins are leaky and loud and I'm grateful that the heater works so well or I'd freeze. I'm sure the setup is really old though just based on the condition of all the vinyl and the lack of hardware on the windows. Final goal is a hard top for winter and emergency soft top in the summer, I think. It's just too damned cold for too long in South Dakota for a year round soft top, IMO. If I still lived down South, I'd likely leave it as-is.
