    I want to do the quick release door pins on my '78 k5... Does anyone know the laws in Texas relating to running on street without doors?

    TIA,
    Dan

    …nope not on the sides. You only need one mirror on you’re truck to let you see behind you but I don’t remember off hand how far back you supposed to be able to see. I used the DPS site to check out the specifics when I was getting ready for inspection.

    I believe that you have to have a 4" lip on the bottom of you floor pan in order to keep items within your vehicle. I don't think it is enforced very much except maybe at the time of inspection. My friends K5 hasn't had doors on it for 4 years and he hasn't had trouble with it except at inspection time.
