ah, thanks.

true, but if i wanted a custom made set, i could go to any of the machine shops around here. im hoping his production ones will be cheaper than custom fab costs.

you could also jus make your own. The steel used for the doors doesn't have to be incredibly thick because you couldn't really expect it to hold up to the weight of lets say, rolling onto a tree stump.

Here's an example.

For the impatient people!

Anyways gildo, I think their "custom" are gonna end up costing 500 bucks+ because of the custom aspect.

before i sell you a set we'll confirm, but i would highly assume so. as long as it isnt the box style rangers, it show be the same distances.

if you want you can measure how much from top hinge to bottome hinge and the distance between holes...

Well, I washed the truck up and took the doors off today, and it only took about an hour. Just make sure you have something that can hold the wieght of the doors when you unbolt them. They weigh about 100lbs each. It's really wierd driving like that, too. It makes the truck look really skinny...lol. Well, heres a pic!

i'll lhave to have a buddy help me put them back on... I lift alot of really heavy **** at work so I figured I'd be alright... I'm going to need some help putting them back on though...

I just took a ride with the doors off-- wow! Once you get over how scary it is and how cool the engine sounds, you feel like a douche, or at least I did driving my near-stock ranger around without the doors. Then after a couple miles, you get used to it.

Oh, yeah and when the doors are off, you don't have any dingers, so don't forget to take your keys outta the ignition or you might get locked out

I'm going to use some of the bullet-type crimp-on connectors. I haven't acutally got to that part yet, cause it's soooo damn hot outside and I'm tired as hell from cleaning it and taking the doors off and carrying them a couple hundred feet to the shop.
