    hey all I got some doors from a friend, 4 off a suburban for free, there even the same color :D . There power W/L and my truck is very much standard. So What should I look for on my fuse block? Also any trick to getting the door panels off?
    Thanks for the help

    No trick to the door panels. Just remember to get all the screws:D

    Let's see if I can remember. 2 in the armrest, one just in front of the arm rest, one in the door latch and 5? Maybe 4? Along the bottom of the panel.

    Un-screw the door lock knob. Hardest part is popping the top loose from the window chanel. Use "A modicum of Force":bow: To be vague about it:haha:

    If you still have access to the Suburban, go back and take out the entire harness for the doors. It is separate from the rest of the harness, so it's not too difficult to remove. You'll get all of the plugs, relays, etc. The nice part is that you then only need to connect two wires into your truck. "Always On" power for the locks and "Switched" power for the windows.

    If your model year was available with power windows and locks, then it should have a place to plug in the harness. If not, then you'll have to get creative.
