I drove over an hour for solar yellow doors for my Jeep. as you can see, not the same color. my Jeep is original paint and pretty sure the door is as well. My Jeep is 2000 and doors are 2001. I have read posts that claim two different solar yellows are out there. I might believe that now.

Yeah, you win that sucks.
There is 2 different yellows... not sure the years.. I got hinges for my yellow one I bought from a person On Facebook and they are a shade different.. not a big deal for rear door hinges but it was different.

and I wasn’t trying to one up ya.. just showing empathy 😉

Fear not...both yellow's suck. 😎
J/k

I don't believe there are two solar yellow's unless...
They called the original YJ islander yellow a solar yellow. Which was more like the original signature series Tupperware cup than yellow.

Now...
Jeep did do a bizarre thing one time with a paint and change a name. Perhaps the PC crowd got involved but I think they once called a color "gun metal grey" and used the very same paint but changed the name to steel blue.
Many o' Wrangler got this paint and even more Cherokee sport(s)

That’s crazy how different they are! I can’t speak to whether or not there is two different solar yellows but every time I’ve ordered the little touch up cans to do a project it has matched my jeep, fortunately. If the paint codes are the same, it is more than likely human error somewhere in the paint mixing process one year vs another.

Mopar made one solar yellow color paint for a TJ. Paint code PYH or solar yellow is used on the 2000-2006 Jeep Wrangler.

Finally found the matching doors, just in time to store them for the summer.

I had a 2000 solar yellow TJ and now I have a 2004 Solar yellow TJ.... I could swear that the 2000 was a more intense darker yellow with a hint more orangish in it, just like the photos of your TJ. I know the paint codes are the same, but they definitely look different to me.

rig looks great, and welcome to the 'two sets' of doors club, & if you're really feeling bold go get you some cloth halfies & step up to the more exclusive 'three sets' club, do it, do it, we're waiting... 😜
