    Do a search on barn doors in the Suburban forum and make sure you select search all posts. There's info on this buried in there somewhere! [​IMG]

    DO A SEARCH, if you had done that you would have found that on the very next page there is a post on the SAME thing.

    One thing you might try is to go park you sub by another sub and just look and see if it can even be done without a lot of modifications. Maybe try and get someone to open their sub with the barns doors and just get a visual??

    Not sure what you mean by "slider" tailgate, but if you're asking about just swapping a tailgate for barn doors, I just answered this question in a post about 10 down from yours.

    Here's the '73 GMC Suburban - 502DFI
