Newbie question.

IIRC Puma doors are stock on 2008 and later Defenders. Split doors were on 85 and older Land Rovers and on all MOD ( British Military) vehicles .

Puma doors are steel frame steel skin full doors. They were first introduced on the 2007 trucks. The frame is stamped, not welded. Easy to spot by looking in the top interior corners. Rounded is Puma, square & weld is the previous steel frame aluminum skinned doors, which are much more prone to rust, and galvanic corrosion.

Thank you for clarification.
So I presume the 97 NAS D90 has steel framed, aluminum skin doors then?
Can Puma doors be retro-fitted for 97 D90?
