first off whats been done ,why were the doors taken off?
The first thing I would do when theres trouble is to remove the striker and hinge bolts so nothing is obstructing the fit then place the door in the jamb using wood wedges to align the door and see if it fits before putting any bolts in it.. If it fits well in the hole with equal size gaps all around then you know it CAN fit and give the hinges a closer look.
lets say you welded on a rocker with the door off ,the door might not fit at all knowing that the door does fit fist will save you a ton of aggravation
