    I would like to convert from tailgate to cargo doors.
    What troubles are there?
    Ballpark on used door prices?
    Were cargo doors available with defrost?
    What extra parts do I need to make sure I get?
    Am I insane for wanting to do this?

    Thanks,
    Dave

    That's funny I want the opposite. I couldn't beat the truck though for the price. 3K and a 13.00 part to fix it. Runnin' like a champ since I got it. /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif

    Yeah, if I had a tail gate I could run a rear bumper with the rocker guards like 4x4iron has. The wife wants to go to Vegas; just not in my gas hoggin beast.

    It looks like you can convert to a tailgate but not to barn doors /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif
