Not sure what you mean because when I bought my jeep there were no pins. Just a steel screw with little thread on the bottom to hold a nut. They work great. And fit snugly. Not sure if this is the way its suppose to come because they look fairly new compared to the rest of the jeep, but they should come like this factory.

The hinges on the door itself should have a threaded bolt end sticking down. The hinges on the body should have the hole for the studs to go though and then have a nut at the bottom. They may have switched the body and door hinge.
Given the design on the hinge.. I would have to say that the pin came out of the hinge. I believe the pin is just welded in from the top of the hinge. Easy fix, buy new hinges... made hard by Jeeps satanic pact with all things having to do with torx.
If that is not going to work, I am willing to bet you can find some round stock that would fit the hinge. If it's a nice tight fit, clean it out and add some lock tight, then tap the new pin in place. Worst case, you can have a shop custom turn a piece of sock to fit the proper pin diameter to replace it. FWIW, my older CJ style doors do not have threaded ends, just tapered pins.
One of my half doors was like that when I bought them. It's just got a bolt through there now. I have no idea where you may be able to get just the pin part, you'll probably have to get an entire new set of hinges.

Get a long grade 8 bolt, cut the head off, tap it in and weld the top just like the OEM pin would be.
My hinges are in tough shape also but I don't want to spend the $$$ to replace them.
It seems that IronMaiden and I must be on the same wave lenght on this fix. Grade 8 bolts tapped in and welded is the cheapest fix I figured, even if you have to hire out the welding portion of the job.
Or you could insert the grade 8 bolt, cross drill it and install a stainless steel roll pin, but welding in the bolt is the way to go.
Senators and Congressman should wear uniforms like NASCAR drivers so we could identify their corporate sponsors....
If what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger, I should be able to bench press a Grand Cherokee by now!
What's with all the welding, cross-drilling, and roll pins? Just grab a 3/8" hex bolt. Make sure it's long enough to double-nut the end so you don't have to tighten it down on the door hinge.
3/8" threaded rod fits though the hinge (I made mirrors for going doorless too), but a bolt with it's smooth shaft would work better for the hinge. Cut off the excess bolt after the double-nut on the end.
You have to start somewhere to get to the middle of nowhere.
