The lower and possibly upper radii towards the back side (side closest to the rear of the jeep) will need to be re-bent to fit the TJ door opening radius.
They came with bad skins, but can be used as templates
The door latches were originally for the early style CJ latches which were mounted high above the tub (possibly to the rool bar). These don't have those and I will be hopefully putting TJ soft door handles in via a welded sub structure so I don't have to have 2 latching systems.
That is just what I know from the limited research there is out there about swwapping CJ to TJ doors.

The boot on the driver tre has a little slit. Are these avaible locally, or do I need to call Currie for a replacement?
I didn't have my 1/4" driver sockets with me and I needed to run some errands. If you are wondering the sizes, the top ball joint is a 7/8" and bottom is a 22 mm sockets.
My Jeep specific ball joint spacers came in and I picked up the ball joist removal and installation tool. I think I will be servicing the rear diff while the jeep is in the garage too - The lube locker has bit the dust. Not bad for 2, almost 3 years of service.
