Switch-out HT Doors w/ ST Doors

Has anyone seen or done this? I hate the HT style doors and want to switch-out my 94POE doors (Fronts and Rear) with that of a prospective HT I've got my eye on. I suspect the transition should be fairly straight-forward, but thought I'd ask just in case you folks know something I'm not thinking of.

OK you have ST doors (slide forward and back window) right now right, and you want to put on SW doors (rool up windows). That I think is just unbolting the door and bolting it back on. As for the back door, I am not sure.

Thanks. That would be sweet. I know the front door latch/locking systems are different, but it would be sweet not to have to drill new holes anywhere. The rear door latch/lock system is the same, I think.

You are ok on the front doors. The rear however, you would need to drill holes. As I recall you would have to move the latch high to line it up with the SW door lock. I think it has to be move 2-3" up almost matching your current door high. You would also need to drill a couple of hole on the passenger side in order to use the SW rear door stop. However, if you are planning to use your ST tire Carrier, you can use it as a stop also. Don't forget, by adding the SW door your tire carrier will no longer work, you would have to either weld it on the door or bolt it.
Are you planning on using the wiper, defrost, and washer nozzle?

I could be wrong but I thought the latch on the body side (not the door side) was the same for the front doors.

I posted that almost the same time as you posted, your reply was not there when I posted mine. So not confused

Ahhh, I see the confusion there.

1. The Driver and Passenger doors, you are saying no modification is needed.

2. The Rear door, in place of the tailgate, would need some holes drilled.

Correct?

Yeah, Yousef and I are on the same page, we just posted the sameish thing at the same time. I think allot of people like the idea of running SW doors on their STs.

My 2... Don't do it.

You have a POE and you should keep it that way. You'll need to change your log-on if you do.

Why make it look like all the rest?... stand out to the few people that would notice. I love it when I'm at a rover function and someone looks at my truck confused than realizes what they are looking at.

like I said just my .02
