I have a 97 xj sport and i want to chop the roof so i was wondering if anyone knows if any half doors from other jeeps would fit and if any tailgates would fit.

Do you plan on putting a cage in when you chop the roof off? The roof is a structural part of the vehicle.

Comanche tailgate works with a little work. As for half doors, soft CJ7/YJ doors should work with a little bit of modification assuming you have a 4 door. Other than that you can only get aftermarket doors or make your own half doors.

Any years, door openings never changed. Getting them on is just a matter of making two small adapters for the different hinge styles.
