Door Advice - Missing

I am buying a 1991 YJ 4.0L 5spd for a friend of mine and it has a soft top on it but no doors. How do I know if it needs metal/soft uppers or full metal doors?

Need to get em before driving it.

Not 100%, because there are lots of different tops.

If the upper rear corner of the door opening is square then it's most likely a factory style soft top and will use the soft uppers. Else, if it's rounded corners then it will take the full doors.

Thanks.
It gets delivered on Sunday with the top on - cannot take pics yet. Have to use a Tarp here until I figure it out.

Looks pretty darn clean. Nice find. Are those tow mounts on the front?

You'll have to just check out how the soft top is whether hard doors will fit or if you have to find soft doors/tops. For example my full doors do not fit with my soft top. Completely different shaped doors.

Hard full doors or anything rounded on half doors.

Looks like a BesTop SuperTop.. As mentioned just about any round corner door will work. The TJ uppers will work with some mods I have seen in a write up here. Search will bring it up.

Yes.. I think it is a Bestop. Rear Zipper won't stay in on main top upper left, I cannot zipper in back window even though I have it. Any suggestions? (Rain here is a big deal - Vancouver, BC) - Thinking of tarping the back window for now.

Doors are Bestop. Door latches are extremely hard to close - stiff - need some oil or wd-40 or sumthing to make them more user friendly. Really hard to close the doors.

No mirrors on the Yj either.
