Hey Brian. I think the doors are interchangeable with no changes needed.

Re: 1988 MJ Driver door latch interchangeability

Well Mark, it's been a long damn time! Also, I found a little patience laying beside some lost motivation and actually cleaned and "lubed" the factory latch mechanism. It's mint now. Even took the time to rewire the door speakers and install the door panels. Thank you for the info! My next item of business is to 4wd swap my 88 and level the front end.
Welcome back by the way!!!

Good deal! It's funny what patience and motivation will get you, in your case, a door that will open and close with the handle. Lol!
Good to be back!
