    The Jimmy/Blazer doors are reinforce at the door latch. If you modify P/U doors you must replace this spot welded piece or your doors will beat themselves apart! This is accelerated times 100 if you go offroad. If you keep in on the road, it may take a couple of years or so, but it will happen eventually. Good luck
