I apologize if this has been covered before but can anyone tell me the year range the sliding doors were compatable for the g-series Chevy vans? I have a '91 and I am looking to buy a sliding barn door off of a 1982.

Is it really that simple? I thought there were several parts out there that bridged those generation gaps. Just not sure about the sliding door.

The doors may be the same size but the lines may have changed or how it bolts up to the van or the slide mechanism works .... you can take a chance but Id find something a litl closer to the yr of my van.

Okay, thanks for the advice. This one is hard to pass up because it's a solid sliding door and those are getting pretty scarce. But I think I will take your advice and hold out for one past 1988.

71-75 had doors without the lower body line. 1977-95 had the body line. I believe door handle operation changed sometime too.

Slider doors and swing out Barn doors are not interchangeable without a lot of work.

I never compared the hardware between years so they my be different, but I think all of the slide door extenders were the same through out the years.
