1983 CJ5 doors??

Just bought a 1983 CJ5 renegade with soft top/doors and I've been trying to find full doors with roll up windows but havent had any luck. Getting customized ones isn't out of the question as winters around here tend to be pretty rough and I'd prefer somehow getting full doors but I haven't found someone to do custom work either. I've found customized hard tops but no full doors let alone any w/ roll up windows. Anyone out there have any ideas?

No such animal exists that I am aware of. The shape of the door doesn't allow for a pane of glass to fit inside if rolled down. Pretty sure any CJ5 doors you find will have sliding windows.

'84 CJ-17: 17" stretch, locked Toy axles, 5.5" lift, FI, AX15, D300 w/twin sticks, boatsides & junk.

If you find a way to get windows to roll down with the shape of the door I want in on it...I'm not sure how you would expect that door to be able to have a pane of glass retract into it?

Saw somewhere they customed the door so the window was shaped to be able to be retracted into the door panel. I think the handle/latch was moved? Seems like a lot of work and kind of takes away from the traditional look of a CJ but worked for what they wanted I guess. I wanted to see if anyone else had that done or something similar

CJ5 doors from a Meyer top can slide up and down.

The weird shape of the window allows it to roll up and down at a slight angle. The Meyer tops were a dealer option up until the end of the CJ5, but people preferred Acme and Tank hardtops since they were much, much lighter.
