As I recall... the rake on the windscreen is steeper on the yj. Therefore, no, they will not fit. Also... something about the door latch. But I don't recall exactly.

the latches are different, the tj's use a pin style I believe. I think half doors from a yj will fit on a tj with a latch change though...

Nope my half doors are for a YJ, the guy I bought them from was using them on a CJ 7. When i got them they didnt' fit right so I had to move the hinges around a bit.

Wes, however, has my old CJ/YJ soft doors and he made them work on his TJ. so that might be a start to talk to him Boogers and shit!!.

yup.
with some monkeying you can even get them to latch without changing anything... just night tight...

The doors i have are off a cj7. And the y are soft doors at that. They fit, but not the best fit.
