Freaking doors!

Ok I am quite sure it's been posted a million times, I have read a million post and now I am more confused than ever! I have a 95 wrangler with steel half doors, bought a factory hardtop to use, I just purchased some full steel doors for it. I put them on and they don't align with my door strikers. I moved the strikers as high as I could and no luck. Wth? I am quite sure this is an easy fix, but I just don't know that much about Jeeps. Please help with this!

First put your striker back where it was, then loosen the hinges on the outside of the door (2 people come in handy here) adjust door to position you need, tighten hinge bolts, done...easier sounding than it actually is. When I had to do mine I loosened the hinges had my friend help me position and shut the door then tightened the hinges....

Ok thanks I will give it a try. I really appreciate it. I feel like an idiot having to ask such a stupid question. Thanks again.

I loosened my hinges and shimmed up around the door frame using wood shims and some cardboard. Once everything looked satisfactory, I locked 'em down.

DO NOT STRIP THE TORX BOLTS!!!
Get an impact to loosen the bolts. Do not attemp loosening them without it, otherwise you will strip 1 or 2 heads.
