    HI all!

    The wife has a 93 4 door jimmy that is starting to rust away. I can get fenders anywhere, but I wanted to know if the front doors on the jimmy were interchangeable with the doors from an 87 s10 pickup? I have the drivers door from an 87 I bought at a swap meet for a pickup I was building, but it got wrecked before I got that far with it.

    BTW, what's the procedure for removing / installing a door on one of these things?

    Thanks, Tom /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    I can't see how there could be any difference in the doors...except maybe for where the armrest bolts. My 87 has an older door on the passanger side and had to fab up a simple bracket (a short piecs of angle aluminum) to hook the armrest to (was like that when I bought it).

    The problem with replacing doors is the welded on hinges (on the door and body). I think I would try it out first (before painting it to match) and see if it fits or not.

    If it doesn't fit your only option is some new hinges. All the replacement hinges are bolt on.

    If it does fit just buy a pin and bushing kit and call it good.

    im preaty sure it will fit.
    when i replaced my door, i cut the pin and bought a pin and bushing kit. doing it that way you dont have to cut the old hinge off, grind it down, and drill and tap holes for the new door. you just cut the pin, knock it out and the door falls off, to put the new door on, get it lined up and put the new pin in. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
