94 door bottoms VS 95-97 Doors?

Anyone know if the ST door bottoms are interchangable from a 97 ST and a 94? How difficult would it be to make the 97 door bottoms work with the 94? Thanks for any help.

They are different. The door stops on the 95 and 97 are an external piece and the 94 is internal like the series trucks.
you can change the door stops to match the 95/97 . Im not sure if the 95/97 door has internal the brakets for the 94

I have 94 doors that I added brackets to.

The 95-97 door does not have the 94 door stop slide in it, but with a little fabrication it could be added.

In my opinion it would be better to add the 95+ style door check to the 94 instead of modifying newer doors to work with the 94. Those old 94 doors with the rod that doesnt stay open are annoying as all hell.

Thanks for the help. I want to replace my current set of doors and was considering to switch everything over to the 95-97 door style in order to avoid the staying open issue. I will probably track down a set of 94 doors and add the hardware. If anyone has a set they may want to part with, please let me know. Thanks again.

To use a 94 door with a 95 check rod involves welding on a couple brackets. Its better just to buy the door you want.

Just throwing this out there - I have 95 style doors on my 110, so I got the 95 hardware for it but ran into issues.

1. The dash got in the way of the bracket (this may not be true on the D90, not sure).

2. There is a mounting hole missing (and I checked my 94 D90 and it's missing too). Without using this mounting the hardware will move and not work properly.

If #1 isn't a problem, maybe you can just drill a hole in the firewall and put a nut on the back side, but I can tell you without the proper mounting the 95 style hardware sucks, and I'm going back to the '94 style catches.

I'll trade my like new 95 style catches for someones '94s.

The missing hole problem can't be solved with a rivnut?

Yes, or a normal bolt and nut for the peasants - as long as the dash isn't in the way. At least on my 110 the dash would need cutting to make it fit. I haven't tried them on my D90

also I think the interior door panels are different. So you may need to modify or buy new 95/97 panels . by the way they are NLA for the 95/97

series doors lack the hole for the key lock on my '94 doors. gotta drill that hole and everything else looks good upon first glance. As for the door stops, I took that small pin out years ago, I like beign able to flip my doors way open and have them stay.
