    Default Barn Door/Tailgate Conversion

    I have a 1990 burban with barndoors and a 1984 burban that needs a tailgate. I am trying to use as many parts from my 90 on my 84. Is it possible to put the barndoors from my 90 burban onto the 84 burban?

    Possible, but not without a lot of work.
    Tried this swap years ago and it ended up being more work than I wanted to do. I finished the project but not without lots of hours spent cussing.

    i agree im very crafty when it comes to swapping stuff from one to the other and i had a cherry 98 indigo blue 2dr tahoe i loved (except for the huge blind spot because of the barn door frames) and i ended up trading it in because that swap was way more work than its worth.
