Lol...no. The windows roll down a little rough. Its probably something I can look at first. But....the light bar issue has to be resolved first to make sure I keep them.

WD40 is a good solvent for cleaning, but not a lubricant. WD-40 can be used to help clean the gunk, but you might want to put some clean grease on after that...

I'm going to remove the light bar to see if the doors fit. Everywhere I've read says the doors should fit. The Doors came off of a 91 yj and I have a 93. once I'm sure that they will fit, I will start the cleanup process. I'll probably change a lot of the rubber strips on them.

Can you post some pics of the doors and the problem you're having? That would help a lot

Cheers

What's the light bar made of?
Could take an angle grinder and put a notch in it so the doors fit?

You might compromise the sturdiness of the light bar

Once I get the door to close I hope the latch lock lineup. My Jeep is a 93 Wrangler. The doors come from a 1990 Wrangler. Everyone says they will fit. I hope so

Loosen all the screws holding it on and hold forward on it while you tighten it down. If that doesn't work take it off and slot the holes a little to get the play you need... shouldn't take much, start with the top hole on each side.

It looks like a type of ABS plastic to me. I was also going to suggest grinding a little notch in it. Shouldn't compromise it that much if at all.

Also this was going to be my other suggestion. Try loosening the bolts and just putting pressure on it to see how much slop you can get out of it before you re-drill the holes. If its not enough you can either cut a slot or just bore the holes maybe 1/8"-3/16" bigger and use a washer if need be. Maybe you could slot the top hole by cutting the slot on the rear side, and the bottom hole forward which should roll the top of it forward.... if that makes sense?

How did you soft uppers fit? Did they brush the light bar when closed?

Cheers

Sorry I didn't answer your question. Light Bar is made of hard steel.
