Might be bad advice but I think you can drill in a later striker just fine. I am actually looking for the early style strikers for my early doors.

Just put the striker you need. Just a glorified bolt.

I`m not too far away from you, i`ll trade my early doors for your wrangler doors. I have an 85 so I could really use the later doors as mine will not latch to my tub, lol. My doors are perfect and not missing anything - but could probably toss in some cash to even it up.

Try this http://ep.yimg.com/ca/I/collinsbros_2105_10717204 bolt to the original striker plate. Something like this could be fab'd very easy.

They will not work as is, true.

You could fab up a spacer, or find the piece to tac weld to the body.

do you have the original strikers for the early doors? we might be able to work something out but if i still have to fab a striker for the older doors ill just keep my newer ones.

Same here, i`ll look in to it. My body tub had nothing - no later style strikers or early style. Maybe your stock tub has what is needed - these doors close with an angled bar that slides over a flat striker plate, rather than the round striker pin.

Ok my buddy who I got the doors from has these strikers - and they work perfectly, we just test fit the door with these. These are bolted in with two bolts. Same as the pin style striker pods that previous posters have mentioned, except these bolt to the face of the door opening rather than the tub near the roll bar.

This thread has some good information, as you will see the striker plates this guy used are different than the ones I suggested above.
