Men in Black makes the panel boards. See the Classified section, Homegrown venders; at the bottom select show posts "from the beginning".

Don't bother with Google. Follow the directions given. He's got a thread on this site in the Vendor's Forum.

What did you expect? The smaller the market, the more replacement parts will cost. Ford sold nearly a million light trucks a year. Jeep, maybe 1/50th of that, depending on the year. Completeness adds a lot of value to these vehicles. I would look to used parts, if the aftermarket replacement parts are too expensive.

when you guys use the aftermarket panels by MIB have any of you then reupholstered them? My driver door underneath panel is all waterlogged and shot so the abs one would be awesome...but also on my original the carpeting along the bottom is all tattered and frayed and needs to be replaced I think.

Anyone ever find a way to redo this yourself? Any ideas welcome

Id hate to just have the abs panel on my driver door while all my other interior doors are original and in good condition.

an upholstery shop may be able to transfer your OEM upholstery onto the new ABS board, and use new carpet at base to get rid of the water damaged part.

you can find decent used OEM panels on ebay sometimes
or check with watson and sons jeep salvage in pinetown, NC
( they ship and they are honest )

P.S. in fact on ebay someone has upper vinyl upholstery
for tan door panels that look great, if wrong color, clean well and dye with S.E.M. vinyl dye or equally good product, then attach to new board.

What color do you need? I have a good Sand color drivers panel. Vinyl is good. Board is a little water damaged, but very usable for daily driver. Pm me ur number and ill send pics. Ill sell it for $50 plus the shipping.

if it is not too badly rotten you can glue another layer of carboard, cut a larger piece to cover the damaged area -yes by the speaker in my case-, I am testing this with different types of cardboard box, one has a side that is glazed -shiny- seems like a better option is water makes it way inside the door panel. I used yellow wood glue, water based and it is holding fairly well, I even put a coat of glue as it seems to create a varnish coat.

but make sure that the vapor barrier is still present, the plastic sheeting between the door frame/metal and the door panel

and that your window wipes are doing the job of keeping the water out of the inside door, which has drains front and rear at the bottom of the door, the newer FSJ had some mesh which can be plugged with debris and no drainage will occur.

Have fun

Adding some horror pict for the quick repair (read inexpensive)

Door panel installed yesterday, will see how it faires when I have to remove it

As found



a little bit of coaxing to bend the cardboard, I put a 2X4 not pictured



Then glued pieces to reinforce the creased areas



I added a small trim on the forward section to reinforce the clips holding wells

Did ya ever try any local junkyards? Door panels aren't a typical part that "goes bad" so you should be able to find something for cheap, if any yards in your area have GW's in them.

Looks like a project!
