If you mean with wind up windows and everything no, But I just bought a pair of diamond plate half doors for my 75 CJ5 from Quadratec for about $280.00. Took a little fitting but they work and look pretty good. They had them for 76 and newer also.

How about a picture of the doors. What and why did you have to modify?

Door Pics

I don't have pics of them on my CJ yet, but heres a one I found.


http://www.warriorproducts.com


go to the half doors section.

I guess for a post 75 CJ they fit right out of the box, the 75 and older you have to use hinges they provide, so I had to drill holes for those. Fitting the latch parts that mount on the body where the door catches (rear end of door where it closes) took a little monkeying with. Had to drill the mounting holes a little bigger. Nothing that was a big deal. Most of the work was adding hardware so I could put the tops of my soft doors on them when I want to. Biggest problem was there weren't any directions at all with them, but if there were I probably wouldn't have read them anyway. I got the black ones, but they have the nice shiny ones too.

CJ-5 hard doors

Hey, I was just on ebay and saw a set of half doors for a CJ-5. I found them under a search for "Jeep hard doors". Not sure what years they fit but they looked pretty cool....Hope it helps

I can send you pics, but mine is a 75 CJ5 so they will ( I think) be a little different on an 80. I think the shape of the door opening is different. Mine is also in the middle of resto work, so it won't do them justice. Mine are also the black ones, not the spiffy shiny polished aluminum. If you still want to see them let me know.
