They are two piece soft Bestop doors (http://www.quadratec.com/products/11044_XX_PG.htm). I bought them from some guys who were restoring a Jeep and had full hards, 1/2 hards and these. When I bought the Jeep it didn't have any top. No hardware for a soft top, nothing. So I have been piecing the YJ together slowly. The wife isn't exactly crazy I bought the Jeep in the first place. I'm slowly cleaning up the rust spots, fixing things, and trying to get it up to a nice ride.

Yeah those only work on Bestop's Sunrider top or Supertop. The only half doors that will work with a CJ (I think) or YJ are Bulldawg doors, keystone Restyling uppers (both of which are hard doors, and TJ soft uppers. The hard uppers are direct swap, while the TJ needs modification on the last pin to allow it to fit properly.

I know your pain pal. My wife gives me that look every time I start working on something Jeep related. But I'm on year 3 now of my rebuild, so by now she knows she can't win this one. Haha

Hope she can learn to enjoy it. Thanks for the help.
