What to look for when buying replacement full doors

Found a pair of full doors on cl to put on my 83 cj7. As I am new to jeeps, I dont know what to look for. What are the problem areas on doors to look out for when I go look at these?

Look for cracks by the vent wing latches. Rust on the window frames. Make sure they are complete and roll up and down nice.

Check the window "hoop" for rust at it's intersection with the door body at the rear side, as well as the portion from there down inside the door. Also look at the bottom, inside the door where water can collect if the weep holes are clogged.
