I am looking at a cj10 tub to put on a cj8 frame to build a truck. Will cj7/8 doors fit? Was told to modify a hard top as to use a half top.

They will fit the tub fine. If you want to run the 10a (I assume you mean 10a, the airplane tugs, which aren't hard to find--actual CJ-10s are damn near impossible to find) half hard top, you can, but you will have a void in the upper corner of the door away from the windshield frame because the 10a doors have a hard angle there where -7/8 doors are rounded. You can make up a filler piece to close that up easily enough though.

Also, the 10a is based on an FSJ frame (at least where the tub bolts down, and the front end). You'd be time and money ahead if you put the tub on an FSJ frame rather than a CJ-8 frame.

Considering this myself. CJ10 is easy to find here in Oz. At least 3 right now I can get.
Put your CJ8 frontals straight onto the 10 tub and your gtg.
