    I dont mean to be a d!ck, but what exactly do you want to know? How to do it? What doors will fit? SHould you go doorless? Tube doors?

    In a word, yes. I mean,what are some of my options?? What have others used? Are aftermarket doors, i.e. LMC, any good? Do you think I will be able to find any good doors at a boneyard? I am just looking for some general pointers. /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif

    Seeing your in Texas,I'd head for the boneyards if I were you,there must be lots of rust free sheet metal in your state.Here in massachussetts you dont waste your time unless the vehicle is less than 5 years old,usually you cant find decent body parts here unless someone junked a truck they recently put fenders or doors on,not a very common ocurrance.Around here you can get those cheep tiwan doors for 125 bucks,but they fit poorly,are thin gauge and rust faster than the originals did,plus you have to change out the glass,window regulator or power window motors,door panels,and need new weatherstipping,not to mention paint. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif the used one will bolt on in 20 minites!.You may get lucky and find a truck the same color! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
