    the mods required are basically cutting down the front and back side of the panel and cutting the door to allow room for the new handle and then of course putting in plates to screw the big armrest/pull handle to the door havent finished completely but am close will do a step by step with photo's this weekend when I do the drivers door. love the look though it lines up nice with the dash lines and the drivers door will too they are a bit different. they almost seem like they planned for it to be done. or maybe its just my creative mind losing it!!!! ha ha. cant seem to put any more pics up no room what do i do post new thread???

    I don't really think you can.. I think you'll have to convert to power windows to make it fit.
