    I used to make em, but fabbing is a pain in the ass. Anyway the point is, if you want to weld a set up for yourself, I can give you the plans. They're square tube, but I like em that way.

    I like what you have on the site, but when are you going to start taking orders again? Would like to have a set before summer time when the top comes off so I am not really in a big rush right now. Shoot me an e-mail and let me know something.

    Micheal and I used to make them, in fact we made the first few sets that were commercially available. They bolted right up and use a factory style latch. I have since moved on, but I believe Mike has started making them again. I dont think he's on here much anymore, but shoot him an email at:

    parkerma@earthlink.net

    They're nice, and there's alot of folks here running them, including Sandman and jekbrown.

    One guy here makes a set:

    http://www.blazerbalto.com/products.htm

    ORD is allegedly thinking about maybe making them:

    http://www.offroaddesign.com/catalog/comingsoon.htm

    Search for them, you'll see lots of designs here. Me, I don't get it and prefer my half doors -- actually I wanna go to 'bout 1/4 doors -- but then my rig has no roof :D
