I have seen these installed on several different vans. They work very well and are a great value money wise. If Matchstick designed it, it is a good product!

Plus, once you buy the kit you can easily sell that slider extender for $150 and make most of your money back. Win, win!

yeah except for the welding part, actually my biggest concern is how do people do the latches? i assume the back part of the door can stay the same but the front sure isn't going to work.

Look closely at how your door latch actually works.

The latch on a gullwing door will work exactly as it does to release and close a slider. Pull it up and to the left to open, down and to the right to close.

Except that on the front part of the sliding door the latch slides into a bracket on the pillar before it will latch, on a gull wing the door is going to swing straight out so it won't be able to work

You've over-thinking it. The latch unhooks from the pillar as soon as you lift the handle and it has nothing to do with anything sliding .

It will still latch and unlatch the exact same way. I know two people who have done it and have seen it with my own eyes.
