Questions About Full Doors on 1981 CJ7

This is my first jeep and first time posting on the forum so please excuse any mistakes or improper lingo. I recently purchased a 1981 CJ7 Renegade to restore to some what stock. My family normally works with race cars and hot rods so this is new territory for us.

The jeep has only soft doors. The biggest change I want to make is to add full metal doors because I have a three year old niece that I plan on taking with me in the jeep. My question is this: are there factory doors available for that model of jeep? If not, are there full doors that will fit my jeep. I live in SE Kansas; can anyone give me an idea of a good salvage or parts warehouse within a couple of hundred miles. We have plenty of experience with body work and modification so anything would not necessarily have to be new.

Thank you in advance for patience with a newbie!

CJ's in junk yards are pretty rare, at least in So. California. I would watch craigslist. They come up often there. OeM new old stock right now I think in Los angeles.

I found if you search for your year in the images on the major search engines or look at the major 4x4 supply houses, like morris 4x4, on the web and search your year, you can get a idea of what type of doors, trim and misc that came for that year. I think 1981 was the first year cj7's came with the paddle handles.
