They'll fit fine. You just have to swap out the door strikers for station wagon ones. That's easy on a 95 ST, the holes are already there. You also have the correct door checks, so those connect right up.

Only thing might be to figure out what to do with the accordion gasket which carries the speaker wire to the door panel, since most of the MDT doors don't seem to have speakers. You might have to cut and add them if you are looking to have speakers.

SW doors are a tremendous upgrade in noise reduction.

OK, what about a '83 110 pickup cab with the removable door tops? New striker plates as well?

Let's see, I already owe you $$ and the wife has cut off all LR funds. So how does $8, some chapstick, pocket lint, and some scratched sunglasses sound?

Or I can weld you some crazy lawn ornament out of all the left over LR part I have?

Yep, definitely. If you've got any door with a lift-up handle (basically the same as the soft top - antiburst), you need strikers that go with the push-button handle-type doors.

you might be onto something there...... In Baltimore's Hampden area there are the " Artist " making sculptures out of hubcaps, and people go and admire them.... so maybe we create a LR Memorial in my front yard

Cool, thanks. Curious to see what these price out at. Everybody tells me I should keep the cool two piece doors, but windows that open all the way, latches that work and door panels that aren't falling apart sound pretty attractive. Guess I'm gettin' old.

Chance,

The new doors are going to seal better, cut down on noise, should last longer than the old style and you can roll down the windows.

Only downside that I am aware of is that the push button doors can have the button freeze and if you have a ST it looks better with the door tops off compared to the SW style.

On that note, I seem to be the only one that doesn't know what the differences are between the new style roll up doors, and the older (my style) doors. Can someone highlight for me please?

The main difference is that the old doors have frames welded up from channel and the new doors have pressed steel one-piece frames. The new doors are also designed to accomodate motors for power windows and solenoids for power locks. The window regulators are different and not interchangble with the old style. New doors also have seals on the bottom like soft top doors whereas older trucks will have seals on the sill and nothing on the bottom edge of the door.

Its worth noting that the doors panels don't exactly swap between the two either. There are lots of other minor improvements like the vapor barriers being molded foam instead of being just crap plastic.
