YJ tube doors on JK

hey. when i had my YJ some years ago, i got some tube for free, borrowed a bender, and made these doors:



when i sold the jeep i kept the doors.

now, i would like to have tube doors on my JK. i know the latch is different, but, other than that, would they fit?? i have them in a storage space so trying them on is not easy, thats why i ask here, if they fit then i will get them out and modify the latch... i know its a long shot, but worth the try as i already have the doors...

Describe what you mean by "fit?"

The actual dimensions of the door openings are significantly different between the JK and YJ so no... they're not going to work without some serious fabricating. It would honestly be easier to buy new tube-doors or even make new tube doors if you have access to metal-fab equip... rather than trying to modify existing YJ doors.
