so with Chrysler in Bankruptcy, what about new parts?

specifically half doors?

June was supposed to give us half door kits but with all that's going on, is this all out the window now?

anyone have any first hand knowledge here?

A third party probably makes the half door I would think.

So far parts are still easy to get, who knows what will happen to a new release item.

It'll probably be pushed back a bit- definitely until the bankruptcy is settled. In terms of parts, they're on hold, BUT if something is desparately needed, they'll re-start the production of that part, or so they say Mark W.

Back in a '94 YJ! Well, after I sink $$$$ into it...

I think we are fine as long as this doesn't take too long, but its really in the hands of the court at this point...if this drags on past June, I bet there are parts shortages...

They are sending out a "do it yourself kit", with matching support beams made out of plastic. Third party AMERICAN company I hope. F China, sorry their stuff is crap.
