Need to find full CJ7 fiberglass doors. Does anyone know where to find them?

Hi All - I have been looking on E-Bay, Craigslist, etc. for some full FIBERGLASS doors for my CJ7. I haven't had any luck for some time now. The doors I'd like are what I have pictured. Are there any companies that make these? Maybe I can get a new set? That would be great. I don't want the steel doors because I don't want to put them on my fiberglass body. I'd appreciate any information on where to find these... Thanks again...

the doors you pictured are for a CJ5, are you sure you want CJ7 doors? also i've found that when searching for jeep parts you have to include both "CJ7" and "CJ-7" to get maximum results

Unfortunately no, They are not but I think there is some company trying to duplicate them.

By the way, those are CJ5 doors you are showing in your post.

You could buy mine, I don't have a CJ7. But you would have to pick them up.

I looked at your photo, John, and the locking machanism is not a flat plate like they have on the older CJ's. I don't want to use the "door striker pin" type of door latch. I want to get the flat plate / door edge type that will accomodate my striker plates...

That was the way Acme made them. Maybe another manufacturer will have a fiberglass door like you want. Have you checked Besttop Hardtops? I bet you'll have to make some mods when you find a set. I think someone here modified a CJ5 doors to use a flat striker. Look at various slam latches for cabs. Maybe one will fit
