94 yj soft doors

can anyone tell me if soft doors for a yj will match the hardtop frame? i purchased a set of full soft doors for mine and the back of the soft door doesnt match the hard top when its put on preventing it from closing. any help would be appreciated. ive attached a picture of them.

Those won't work I'm pretty sure of it :/ try looking up soft tj uppers, they have the same angle for the hardtop. That's what I'm doing to mine at the moment

I believe the stock soft tops had a square top corner instead of rounded. The aftermarket (bestop, etc) are rounded, but different. My hard doors are so close to matching the Bestop door surround hardware, I'm not convinced it's not an adjustment/alignment issue. TJ uppers can be modified to fit a hardtop with a little bit of work.

Clear as mud? :P

What doesn't fit? Maybe you just need to do some adjusting?

The top of the uppers on both sides, hit the corner of the hardtop, and I'm afraid of cutting into the top

the front or rear part? the hardtop is rounded on the back so it should fit the back of the door. if the front is not hitting right, try adjusting the body hinges for the door or bending the door frame a bit to fit.

i would not cut a hardtop because of how expensive and hard to get they are. i would bend a set of soft doors to fit though since you can get them on ebay for 50 a set, if you look carefully

Just a thought...is your windshield angle adjusted right? If it's off, it can throw off everything. I don't remember the exact dimension, but you measure from the windshield frame back to the rear edge of the tub. I'd check it.

+1 - don't cut on the hardtop at all.

+1 - adjust the soft doors as needed

Use weatherstripping to shim the top up if it will help your interference problem. A picture of the door installed would help.
