hard top question

i feel almost embarrassed to ask. so i'm purchasing a hard top, having lived with a soft top and half doors all my life. will half doors (and upper windows) mesh with a hard top, or will i have to buy full steel doors?

chances are that you'll have to buy steel doors

Depends on your upper doors. Most hard tops have rounded corners for the upper doors, while your soft uppers probably have a more angled corner. You can probably get aftermarket uppers with rounded corners.

I struggled with this all last winter. The only real solution is full doors. There may be a fiberglass slider upper that could work but they are pricey. I used TJ uppers and the last peg sat inside the door. The first two pegs drop right in the holes. They actually sealed pretty good.

Don't tell my wife how much that really cost!
