yes, they will fit. these are CJ doors on my 93 YJ.

the only isue you might have is if the CJ doors have the twist style handle, those require a different striker to be put on the jeep tub.

nice, u think they would work with a yj hard top too? the reason is i have a guy selling yj doors for 500 and a cj guy selling his for 100. i could prolly get the strikers pretty easy from a yard.

Yes, I run a YJ hardtop with CJ7 doors on my 1993. The only real difference in tops is the latch on the liftgate.
In fact, I'm fairly certain any YJ/CJ7 door/top system is completely interchangable.

Before I get slammed I mean all the door/top systems are interchangeable (excluding softops)

the doors I have on mine are 85 or 86.
as long as the have the paddle style handle, like in my picture in my post above, they will work with the YJ striker.
the only thing I had to do was adjust the hinges on one door to get it to line up correctly.

I don't remember wen the handles changed, but the earlyer CJ's had a twist handle, like this one, that will require a striker change,


and, yes, they will work with a YJ top. as already mentioned, the only difference between the CJ and YJ hard tops is how the rear glass closes with the tailgate. with the CJ tops, you had to open the glass first, then the tailgate. with the YJ tops, the tailgate has to be opened first.

muddy when you adjusted the hinge did you have to drill new holes for it, or was it easy

no need to drill holes. just loosten the bolts, align the door, tighten the bolts.
there is quite a bit of adjustability in just the door hinges. however, on the off chance that there isn't enough, you can also loosten the body side of the hinge, and adjust it as well.

I want to say the door latch changeover was in 1983. I think the 1981 had the older style striker and handle. And to be honest I dont know if they even made a CJ in 1982 I've actually never heard of anyone owning one...kinda strange.

Ditto on the above.. I have the early CJ doors on my '93 YJ. Got them for $100 Found a set of of NOS CJ strikers, put them in and the doors work perfect. They work fine with a YJ hardtop too.

Where are you in NJ?

How can I make CJ doors fit on my 93 wrangler?

Specifically for cmsurfer....your situation sounds a lot like mine. I just bought a 93 wrangler off of craigslist, and the full doors that came with it are CJ doors (I believe the hard top is also from the CJ model). Unfortunately, the doors don't have any handles, so now I'm trying to find a way to make this work. Right now the doors just have holes where the handles are supposed to be....no mechanism on either side. Do you know what I need to make this work? Every place I've gone so far has told me they couldn't help, including a jeep junk yard. I'm pretty unfamiliar with jeep parts, so if you could send a link to a picture, that would be awesome!

Thanks!
