    I may be wrong, but I would think if you can put newer doors on the older XJ's, should be able to go the other way.. and I know the latches are different between the two.. but have been wondering if you can swap the latches inside the door to keep them the same.. so you could swap between half doors and full doors whenever without having to swap the pins for the latches to catch..

    what about the fiberglass hatch from it? would be neet to make a half hatch...
    25 for each door is that a good deal?
    the door panels are missing and window regulator things are all busted up in them

    Here is an article to put later model doors on early model XJ, so it will work vise versa.

    The hatch will not swap though. The dimensions are different..taillights are different.
