Door surrounds, my 87 had a factory soft top with 1/2 doors, when I went to a hard top I had to pull all the hardware off and that is what I was left with.

I think you hit the nail on the head 94 - I have half doors and the plastic piece is needed for two reasons - to give the soft "upper" door somethign to snug up against and keep rain/wind, etc out - plus the little "teets" at the top hold the rail that the factory soft top snaps on to. I guess if you have full steel doors they might not be needed.

I have the bestop aftermarket soft top which has 2 barckets with the "little teets" you described that are attached to the windshield using the same bolts the roll cage uses. So it is not required if you have a soft top but I can see where it would create a better seal if I had them.

A little off topic but.... I have also found that with my soft top from them I should really be using the uppers from a TJ that have the rounded corners instead of the YJ.

Those holes are there for the factory soft top for the part JBolty linked to. If you get an OEM type soft top then you'll need them.

If you get a supertop then you don't need them. A long time ago, with another Jeep, I replaced the OEM top with a supertop and I want to say the instructions said to remove that door seal piece. I didn't and it worked fine. I'm assuming it'll work without it as the instructions said to remove them.

I personally wouldn't weld them up. I'd just put shallow screws in them and call it good.

I like them too but it's not my jeep, "plumber1" posted a pic of his jeep. Looks like he says they are part of a "Rock Hard Sport Cage", maybe you could google it?

"What are these holes for?"

Those wholes are definitely for a plastic bracket that screws into the spot. On top of the bracket is a small post that help to lock down your full soft top. That bracket also creates a tightness between the door and the weather.

When you go to put the full soft top on, you extend the interior rack system. On the part of the rack that goes along the top of the door should be some snap buttons and a small plastic part with a whole that slips over the smaller post at the top of the bracket.

I just repaired my interior rack to put my top on and found out that is why you keep the wholes and plastic posts as they are. Good luck!
