How-To author: bjohnson238

Original thread:

Let the modding Begin!!


I know it's pretty simple, but thought someone might need some help with this. My truck is a gen 2, so I don't know what other gen's are like but here it is.

after all that you can pull the door panel off, it's best to use a door clip removal tool so they don't get damaged.

Next, remove the bracket that supports the arm rest.

After peeling the plastic back, put the window crank back on and roll it up to gain access to the rivets holding the window in place.

The best way I've found to remove the rivets, is to cut the heads off with a cut off wheel
