The hole that the original latch went through needed to be closed so I welded it shut.

I picked a set of these door latch handle adapter things at a swap meet. They seemed to work well but in order to keep me door handles in the same location I needed to modify them. First I cut the one side off and weld it to the other side so the original inside door handles will still work. This last picture shows plan B the shorter arm didnít give me enough clearance to work properly.

Ok I have had the door jams in and out more times then I care to mention. I am planning to install bear claw latches with power locks and actuators, and the jam contacts. So with the jams and door out of the cab what better time to mock these up. I started with the jam contacts. While the jam is fairly smooth the doors were not so I had to make some changes to the door first and then the jam.

After welding in the plug and grinding it down I took a smaller hole saw bit and cut a new hole in its proper place. I test fit the tire mount and it donít look too bad, notice the difference in the space to the front of the chrome plate and the front of the cab.
