    If you have an old blazer door, or get a look at one, you'll see an extra plate around the latch that is not found on a truck door. If you don't have the blazer doors to get them from, you can simply get some metal from your hardware store, and make some. Just weld your own plates to the doors and your in business! I have also seen a few blazers that don't have the plates(truck doors) and none seem to miss them much. Just an extra .02 cents free of charge[​IMG]

    Sean, by cheap doors do you mean ones from the wrecking yard? Or do you mean cheap re-pops from Tiawan? I'm just curious because I'm going to pick up some of the re-pops this November. I just want to see if anyone else has used them.
