YJ hardtop and TJ soft upper doors?

Hi all- Before you think that this is a "beating a dead horse" thread....

I keep wondering how the TJ soft upper and the YJ hard top shapes compare. I KNOW THAT THE REAR PIN LOCATION IS NOT THE SAME, as has been discussed 432,907 times on this forum alone.

Like many of you, I have a factory softtop and half doors (square top).

I also have a factory hardtop (round opening). I recently bought some CJ7 doors that I hoped would be to my liking. But making them fit is a pain in the neck, as I don't want to have to adjust the strikers & hinges twice a year. I'd really like to keep my half doors for spring/winter.

After reading the Length Envy thread --- specifically page 20 --- of this thread....http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f12/l...0/index20.html I wondered:

Does anyone on this board have a set of TJ soft uppers and a YJ factory hardtop? If cutting/moving/rewelding the rear pin is the only obstacle, it may make sourcing a set of donor doors a bit easier?

Did you ever find out if this works? I have been told by a reliable source that it will. I'm wondering myself now that I am about to source upper TJ doors.

I'm running TJ uppers on my YJ with a YJ hard top.
