    I have power doors. I want to know if there is quick connecters on the wiring harness behind the kick panel. So i can remove the doors w/o cutting the harness. Any info is appreciated.

    I dont think there is, I believe you have to unhook the wires at the power lock and power window motors.

    There is a connector behind the kick panels. You have to remove the plastic end from the door side so the wires will slide out. If you are wanting to make them removable you can wire in door pin connectors, similar to what is on the rear doors of a newer Suburban. Only catch is that nothing will work unless the door is closed.

    You could go to the Chevy dealership and get a weathertight connector for the doors. Just tell them how many wires you need in the connector. I might be able to find a part number if you have trouble.

    Thanks guys for the ideas. My only concern w/ the weather tight connecter, or the door pin style is will they be able to handle the amps ofthe power window? I want to make them removeable for Moab. Since everyone seams to be sheading pounds for this. As I have never ran w/o doors. I just want to keep it simple stupid.
    Thanks again for you replies. ED

    Should be no problem, GM uses the wheathertight connectors on almost everyhting under the hood, including the alternator and the main engine harness.
