    my door latches suck....its takes about 2 stirkes each time to shut my door and i usually have to slam it. originally i thought it was from the new weatherstripping/bumpstops, but its not (found that out after adjusting door). There are two types of doors for first gen and i was wondering if the lathces where the same style............??????? on most 1st gen doors there is a thick metal plate where the latch screws into. however on my truck there is continous thin sheet metal where the latch attaches to the door. it looks like the bolt pattern will be the same but i dont know.

    sorry this thread is out of place but its all i could do....thanks for your view :truck::1zhelp:

    I thought that was only on the K5's because of the stress from taking the roof off:confused:

    I had a similar problem with the drivers door of my GMC, until one day it closed but would not open from the inside or outside. I had to take the interior panel off and disassemble the guts, turns out the assembly inside was all rusty and had fallen apart. I reassembled and greased it, put it back together, and it worked good as new. keep a magnetic wand on hand in case little pieces fall into the door.
