looking to replace front doors on 92 ROW D90 and wondering if anyone has swapped out for the SP series conversion kit?

yea they will work, i have the two piece doors and used SP to replace mine. That being said the roll down windows on the pushbutton doors give you so much more air


overall most would view it as a major downgrade, i think the one piece doors fit better too, less moving parts

I would personally spend a bit more and get galvanized door bottoms especially if you want them for the long term.

As above roll down windows are nicer unless you plan to leave the tops off most of the time.

Please add your location to your profile. I presume you’re in the USA- if so, FYI SP-4x4 will not warranty their stuff for overseas travel, and I (& others here) have had stuff arrive that’s damaged in shipping.

Exmoor don’t make the nice roll down material door tops any more, was wanting a set for summer wheel’in once my trucks back on the road. Might be a nice winter project to make some.

$750 for the whole kit feels like a too good to be any good story. The bottoms are readily available but the tops I would spend the $ on to get good working units that will last and not drive you nuts.
??? They are brand new series style door tops in the kits. They are made by SP4x4.

Yep, but a new item purchased over the internet from the UK doesn’t mean a thing to me anymore. I edited my original post to be more polite given I don’t know SP and shouldn’t pass judgment.

It would be a very strange thing to put in the description as that would mean the manufacturer sells directly and that they are making fraudulent claim. I can't find any manufacturer selling these tops directly.
