Suburban rear doors

I accidently shattered the rear glass on the lift gate for my '89 burb. I found a guy with suburban the same color as mine, and he is parting it out. His burb has the barn door setup. My question is, can you swap from a liftgate to barn doors? What needs to be done?

I don't think this is a feasible swap. You don't have the door channels in the upper section to accept the barn doors. Not only would you have to modify your top, you'd have to modify the bottom sides to accept the hinges, etc.

I say get the glass you need and leave well enough alone.

That sucks. I figured Chevy kept it simple, and made everything universal. I thought I could get away with an easy swap. Kind of wanted to get away from the lift gate, since the window motor was giving me problems anyway.

I seem to recall reading that someone on ColoradoK5 did this swap a few years ago. You might do a search over there for more info. I think the username of the guy that did it was MuddyTaz.

One thing I do know for sure is that if you keep the gate you have to use glass from a Suburban. It isn't the same as the glass used on the Blazer tailgates.
