ive never seen a 3door s10 with the driver side door suicided.
im sure its possible, you could weld the 3rd door shut and make the front door pivot of off it, or you could make one huge door, but it would weigh a ton and the hinges probly wouldnt support all that weight

I have seen it done at a show!! Looks awesome. The third door was welded inside and out and then the whole thing was reinforced. Looks good but I dont know if I would trust the hindges on a daily driver.

yea..i'm not a big fan of the one huge door. i'd rather just lose the 3rd door if i decide to suicide em.

pluse..why do you need the 3rd door anyway if there is going to be a bangin' system back there anyway!!!

I'm in the same situation. I got a 3rd door but want suicides. To be honest, I don't really care about loosing my 3rd door. How much would any of you think this would go for? 3rd door shut, and suicides.

It would pretty cool if you could keep the third door and still suicide the front door. I like the idea of having the third door when it comes to showing off stereos. I've seen many boxes that have an amp rack built into the side, where when you open the third door you see the amps and stuff. Looks cool as hell. However I think suicide doors look cooler than the stereo setup.
