    Don't drop that heavy door on your foot.....get help if ya can...or some old milk crates to prop the door on. The top hinge is a little tuff to get off. There is a bolt from the inside, behind this dash, behind a rubber plug. If you use a socket on an extension ya migh wanna put a little tape around it to keep it from fallin' down insde the panel when ya pull it back out..../forums/images/icons/blush.gif Other than that ya might outline your hinge location witha felt tip pen before ya remove them, doors and truck, to give yourself a reference where to put them back.

    I used some White-Out to mark the hinges location before I took them off - it is still there a year later! And yes, watch out, the door is pretty heavy and awkward to hold with just one guy...
