I know some of you will *****! custom CJ half doors

I had this pair turd brown CJ full Metal doors. They were not in the best of shape and I have the original red factory doors in my shop. Anyhow I hate how the TJ doors look on the CJ and feel if AMC would have made factory half doors they would have looked like I made them. The design a lower me to put the aftermarket latch in upside-down wich made them a pop down button. I still have a quite a bit of work but you can see how they look. Up where the vent window was I will cut and install a 3" cup holder which will be half way inset.
I know holy crap he cut up full Metal doors, I have door glass and two fixed glass vent glass for sale make me an offer and pay shipping. Vent glass will have gaskets with them.

That pointy edge will do a lot of damage to you in an accident.

your concerned about sharp edges and you drive one of the most unsafe vehicles to be in if hit from the side or rear or front!

Nobody else does, and that's why you should knock that corner down.

I've seen some things...

AMC designed the YJ half-doors.

According to what data? I've actually been in a substantial side impact collision in a CJ that sent the other driver to the hospital and totaled his Nissan Maxima. I literally drove the CJ home and didn't even have a bruise.

The "unsafe" reputation of a CJ is not supported by real data.

Im in the process of doing the same thing. I snagged a set of full doors that someone had cut on the inside for some reason to get the glass out, so I didnt feel bad about some more cutting. Mine had the rotary latches rather than the paddle, so I did away with the exterior latch. I had to cut out and lower the interior latch. I followed the taper of the top hinge, rolled off the corner of the hinge in a straight line to the body line, then straight along the body line to the back of the door.

Edit with pics:

Heres how im doing mine.

I kinda like it,
Nothing on the CJ is so 'pointy' so I would cut that sharp corner down with a radius to match the two bottom corners.

why they look pointy

If you look at factory doors the body line that runs down behind the vent window and radiuses back that is the factory bodyline I used to cut The shape. when it's uncut on a full door it does not look pointy but it is. Plus the height of the body line is exactly perfect height to rest my arm.also not cutting down allows me to 6x9 speakers in the large rear retangle shaped opening and a possible pocket in the forward square opening and then covering with Diamond plate with drilled out 1/4"holes where the speaker will be. I am trying to work out how to make the top button blend in with the top ,I am thinking of making a 1" square you will push down to open. Quick release plugs on the speaker wire. And of course the cup holders like I mentioned in the original post.
