Mine touches as well. I was thinking of bending up the inside lip a little but I really don't think there will be a great deal of vibration there. The u channel is quite thick anyway.

I also ended up spraying that area white. I wasn't impressed that the pressure pack of bright white cost me $33. They have definitely raised the price from the last time I bought one

Just remind her of the bits in the manual & on the hardtop that say, "Warning the roof & doors of this vehicle are not designed to restrain the occupants in case of emergency. Always wear a seatbelt." (Or words to that effect.)

They probably have about the same intrusion protection as the regular doors, with a fraction of the weight!

Looks good Banshee.

I know you had some issues initially, but how's the final fit and finish? Any rattles?

I used a 12" shifter to adjust the lock mount plates & they fit well now. The biggest rattle I get is from the test tags on the fire extinguishers beside the seats rattling in the wind!

Reapplied tape to the catches while I was doing it. Mirrors shake a little, but that is about normal.

Haha I have, and included that they are probably stronger than the original doors.

I can't understand her logic considering she loves not wearing a seatbelt when we're on the beach even in the Tj with the half doors.

Which is probably why I'm on my 3rd marriage

Bought and fitted one of these from Ebay:



They're not too bad but you do have have elongate 3 of the holes to fit. Despite all the wheel stud combinations, it doesn't quite fit the Wrangler wheel pattern. A couple of minutes with a Dremel and it was fine.
