    That's it.... fit the whole question into the title. I can't pick up my suburban for another couple weeks, but i think it has power windows and what not. Just wanted to know if I could put it all in my blazer.

    Doors should fit fine , but for power operation you should transfer the whole wiring harness over , and while its out recover it and fix any bad wires .

    I put 85' Sub doors on my 78' GMC Jimmy and they fit fine.

    Doors never changed from 73-91. I tend to know to much about the body parts. I hope this helps.

    73-75 doors are the same, missing the window frame for the full top.

    76-91 doors are the same but there were differences in vent window shape and size.

    You don't need wire cutters , just remove and replace .

    I pulled the whole dash and harness out of the rusty 83 tub I WAS going to use in a few hours , that includes heat controls , core , firewall box , everything . Reinstallation isn't much harder !

    If both trucks originally had a/c , its should be easy to make your truck functional again too .
