97-98 TJ hard half doors on a 94 YJ?

Just a quicky... I cannot find the answer. Will the hard half doors from a 97 or 98 TJ fit on my 94 YJ? Any details regarding this would be greatly appreciated

I believe that they will physically fit the opening, but the latch/striker setup is different between the YJ and TJ.
So, you’d either have to swap the striker on the YJ tub, over to the TJ style(but then you couldn’t run any other YJ doors that you have). Or, you could try to change out the latch in the TJ doors, but I have no idea if a YJ latch would fit, or even function in a TJ door.

I thought the windshield angle was different as well, but I am not sure...

You're partly correct. The windshield frame on the TJ's is wider at the bottom, where it meets the tub. So, even though the windshield glass(and outside of the frame) is at a different angle, the inside of the windshield frame(and door opening) IS the same as it is on a YJ.

OK, thanks for the clarification- I knew I had heard the TJ was at a different angle. Never had a chance to put TJ and YJ doors next to each other...
