Ok, as you can tell this is an old post of mine and I really hate to bring it up again but it might help someone in the future. I put the truck on the road about a yr ago and it has been alot of fun to drive. I've gone back and forth with the doors and just could not figure out why they wouldn't close flush with the back of the cab. Well after more tinkering with them last night I had a thought that never really occured to me. Wait for it. I took the striker plates and switched them from right to left and guess what happened when i close the door. That's right, they closed perfectly. Don't recall there being a left or right. So at the risk of sounding like an idiot i'm posting this just in case anyone out there runs into a door issue.

LOL- great news! Congrats. Maybe this is why I'm doing my doors but just one door at a time.

- The 216 and early 235 engine are not "splash oilers" - this is a splash oiler.
