the '78 and newer doors had bigger windows and had the metal around the door handles recessed. also the side door towards the rear is different on the '78 and newer.

I got these off an '89 at my local P&P - to go on my '74. I wanted swing out glass, and inside door handle with lock button. Glass is deeper but ok w/me. My doors don't match or line up anyway, also rubber on these very good.[Linked Image]
I haven't installed but measured and checked w/ some Dodge van guys.Got a little tweak on one lower corner - but it was 1/2 price weekend so...[Linked Image][Linked Image][Linked Image]oops.

I take it the door size on the back are the same for quite a few years. What about the front doors?

Yes..beginning in 78 the door handles were recessed slightly. However if you don't care about that, then you can swap front doors up to 93 if you want to keep the chrome handles. 1994-up has black plastic handles and they don't swap out directly.

How about the rear cargo doors? Up to what years will fit a 77?
