CJ7 half door fitment

I can't find information on which half doors will fit on a 1984 CJ7. I've read that there are some years of YJ half doors that fit CJs, but sometimes there is a catch that needs to be added. I was wondering if anyone had any info / a chart on what fits where. I was confused by what i found on google.

I'm looking for steel half doors hopefully cheaper on craigslist than most i've found on ebay

Don't discount flea markets and swap meets for steel half doors.
I got my pair in a flea market buried under some household junk. The right door was perfect the left door had a few dents and the trim panels were junk but i got them for $35.00 with mirrors which i resold the mirrors for $10.00. The Vin tag on the doors said they were 94 YJ. I have an 81 CJ they fit perfectly i did not even have to adjust the hinges for them. I believe you have the correct strikers already on yours. They should look like standard American car striker bolts

This is the kinda whiny crap I would expect to see in the JK forum. We drive rough riding, leaking, gas guzzling CJ's. Rattle can it and throw it in your Jeep.

84 should have the stud for a lock as far as I know the doors didn't change until the TJ, which uses kind of a loop, the 1/2 doors all have the paddle latch and were available in 87, 87 took a different upper and didn't have a lock. but other wise are the same. I have a couple of sets of each and and have just added the strip if I didn't have a set of the early uppers

Not necessarily. A jeep only came with the latch post if it was ordered with doors. My '84 didn't have them.

Thanks guys! Sorry for the long time between responses, I was dealing with buying the jeep before I started looking for parts. I got it yesterday. Thanks for the ideas on places to look.
