    I have been thinkin about putting sucide doors on the back doors of my 07 double cab. What do you think? Has anyone done this? I want to do something not alot of people have, everyone seems to have the same shit.

    It will look great if done right.

    To do it right will Cost allot unless you are a body shop...

    I would do it if money is a factor for you..

    Chances are good that this would be the start of totaling your truck. Look at the ricers that add the gull wing doors, 99.999% are total hack jobs, chances are good that would be the same quality job that the suicide doors would be. The doors will leak air and water, the wind noise will be unbearable. You could probably find a shop to do it correctly but the cost would be unbelievable. I am speaking from experience on this. My oldest brother is a street rod fabricator, a huge part of their business is repairing other shops screw ups. I have seen customers bring in street rods that they just paid $75,000 to $100,000 on and want a few minor things done, only to dump another $100,000 or much more to get the car where they thought it was in the first place.
    Just my two cents.

    Below are links to some of the cars he has built.
