Which doors can I use?

I found some similar threads in here but not exactly what I am looking for. I bought a 1995 sarah YJ about 3 weeks ago and the dealer replaced the soft top before I bought it. It has factory half doors. I would like to put full metal doors on it but I am confused. All the metal doors I find have a curved protrusion at the back of the door where window and main door meet but my top and current door set up is straight from top to bottom. Does that mean to use a full door I would need a new top or are there YJ doors for the 95 that are straight? I found these doors on ebay, http://www.ebay.com/itm/200904254291...84.m1423.l2649
and attached a pic of my Tsavy so you can see what I am talking about. I know I have seen full doors with soft tops before but I have never had to convert one of my jeeps from half door to full door so I am unsure.

Thanks for any help you can give.

Yeah, I don't think the factory hard doors will work with a factory-style soft top. You'd have to get a Supertop-style for it to work with the rounded hard doors.

Example of the differences.

OK, so if I am understanding then my choices are as follows:

I can replace my soft zippered window uppers with soft sliding glass uppers. Those are just an easy replacement with no mod needed,
I can replace my soft top with a different soft top that will work with full doors (a PITA and expensive),
I can replace my soft top with a hard top which requires additional wiring for rear wiper and defroster for the back window (again a PITA and expensive)



Ultimately what I want is to be able to get rid of the zipper windows. I find them to be noisy and inconvenient as I like to be able to crack my window when I drive. Of course in another month or two I will remove the door uppers for the summer but I will have to address this issue before winters comes back around again. Thanks for the input.

Search for some slider upper door replacements then. That's the only thing, minus getting hard doors and replacing the top.

i bet you could find somebody to trade you a hard top and full hard doors for your soft top and half hard door set up.

I hadn't thought of that idea. I may have to look into that. Thank you for the suggestion.
