Interchangeable doors??

Couldnt find sufficient information on exactly what year of doors can be swapped and bolted on with no gaps or alignment problems. I just picked up a 94 Grand Cherokee 5.2 and the PO trashed the drivers door. Im going to be junkyard shopping tomorrow and I would appreciate it if anyone had some input before i buy the wrong door! Let me know!!!

All exterior skins and mounts are the same. Interior door panels are 93-95 & 96-98 specific.

My 93 and 94 had specific door wiring harnesses (has the stupid torx bolt in the middle), not sure if the 95s are the same way.

93-95 doors have a different electrical connector than the 96-98 has.
A newer (96-98) will fit the older ZJ but you will have to mess around with the wires to make it work with the rest of the jeep.

Thanks guys. Picked up a complete door today for 150 bucks. It had a piece of sheet metal riveted to the inside door jam, must of had the same problem as me.... The door sags but not bad at all. I think ill be replacing the pins to keep the latch from getting destroyed. Although i am lifting up when i shut the door, its still possible ill trash the sheet metal if it doesnt close correctly. I think i got a decnt deal though!!

was it at least the same color? 150 for a door seems high to me.

150 does sound really high. I paid 50$ for a hood and a door last year. They weren't the same color but the whole jeep is getting repainted after the door gets put on.

Edit: that was 50$ for both.

I have a full set of doors in Jersey. I'd be happy to get $150 for all 4

Check craigslist first.

... Funny I'd not like to give a $150.00 per door either.. But we only have one wrecking yard in town now and the prick that runs it has Stopped all the fun. I'll bet he is $200.00 per door. I called him today I'm wanting a fuel pump and I just wanted to get the tank along with it . The prick ask me $100.00 for the tank and another 100.00 for the fuel pump.... Used... So I called over to a town west of us that there is a big yard at .. That guy says .. I got $30.00 for the last pump I had and He'd just as soon give me the tank as take it apart.
..... So I guess I'm saying shop around.

It's funny, salvage yards by me would probably charge more than that. It's almost not worth going to a salvage yard anymore. But it also could be because of it being a drivers door. I just checked one of my local wreckers. They had 15 passenger doors and zero drivers doors.

Yes I see many ZJ's with a replaced drivers door. O well I can't get my money back, I just have to work with what I have.

I think $150 sound cheap..
Here they want $200 for a door and if I wanted a complete set of doors the hood and liftgate it would be $1200..
