zahc, your very negative, buddy.


I dont know, stock, trucks dont look good doorless. if its a little built up, they look kickass. I loved the way mine looked, but i wouldnt leave em off now cause i dont have my offroad tires on. when i put my swampers on, then ill take em off...

Well, i put the doors back on, wasn't hard. I just had a strong friend come over and hold the door for me while I put the bolts back in. Just put the bolts in don't He-Man them down so you can adjust if you need to. Then when you get it straight, then you can He-Man the bolts down tight.
