    Has anyone repaired the spot where the top door hinge attaches to the door? Mine rusted and cracked. We tried to weld it but ended up screwing up. After grinding off the weld, things are even worse.

    Success! I took my truck to a local body shop and they did a pretty darn good job of fixin' it. I need to replace the hinge pins and need a new striker but it's tons better than it was.
