    Anyone know of a company that makes soft doors for a 74 k5? Something similar to what comes on jeeps? Thanks and have a good one my friends.

    I have seen stock doors, no doors, tube style doors but never soft doors /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif Why would you want them anyway?

    Cybrfire could use them in his project to build a Jeep from a Chevy /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif

    More seriously, I could see protection from rain, if not temperature. Me, I'm going half doors a la Toby's orange TTC2K3 Blazer, but to each their own.

    Yup Im planning on half doors myself but the only problem is that my rig is parked in my front driveway so theives will love the fact that it is so easy to get in. Also its not under any covering so when it rains its will all get in there. I guess Im staying with full doors for now /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    I made these for my Blazer a few years ago... They had snap on windows and canvas lowers and a 1" tube frame.

    The guy who's got 'em now may be interested in selling them./forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    I really want no doors, but the soft doors are for the winter rain. My ride is parked putside all year. During the rain I would like to snap/zip up windows etc to keep the rain out. makes driving somewhere a little nicer in winter and helps keep rust down to a minimum.

    I made my own, got some snaps online, and sewed up some marine vinyl to cover my tube doors... It ain't perfect, but it helps knock the wind/ rain down...

    I wish some of the soft top companies would make them.
    I'd love to have a set of Can-back removeable soft half doors.
