Anyone recognize these half doors?

Found a guy selling these half doors. Doesnt know what brand? says they are fiberglass and have been in his barn 10 years. I cannot find anything that looks similar to them online. Think they will fit my CJ? Im looking and arent my paddle handles alot higher? Im not at my cj where i can look at the jamb. Does this require swapping out different strikes when using these?

Hard to tell. They look nice though. If the price is right, pop a door off yours and try them. They look like they will fit

That's the same type of striker my soft doors use. It's basically the same as whats on a screen door.
You could probably actually use one for a screen door. You will need to drill the mounting holes in your door jamb though.

I believe your hard doors use the post type striker.

The latch looks like the old style cj7 door latch. You might need to take off your door striker but they should work.

As mentioned already, they will physically fit the opening but you'll need to remove the post type striker and replace them with the striker plates used on earlier models. Without the plates the latch mechanism will hit the lip of the tub and wreck the paint in short order.

If he has the striker plates thats not a bad price. But if not you will have to trake something down or make something. Not a real issue, I'm sure you could get some ideas for folks here. If he does not have all the part try to talk him down with fact you have to fab up striker plates. I would go seen them and offer $125 because of those reasons, and try to meet around $150 if possible. But that all depends on how much you want them. If you really want them pay the $200.

x2. I see steel half doors go for $200-$300 regularly. Fibreglass shells would be worth less to me.

I'd pass. You could get fabric half doors for half the price, that serve the same purpose and at least use the same strikers as your current doors.
