Yea it's not too hard to swap, but you've got to have all the hardware. The track from the quarter window setup doesn't properly support the full size glass.....Or if body color matches, or one doesn't care swap the whole door.

ur right it's also a matter of personal taste/preferance......I'll take the big window door all day every day, I like the mirror much better. It's bigger, & the glass moves in the housing not all 1 piece, my all 1 piece spacer mirrors are heavily affected by the wind.....most importantly tho with the big window.....there's no little triangle window to worry about sealing.
Old post, I know, but.. Do you know if it is just as easy to convert from big window to vent glass style? I like the look much better, and have both styles, but the older doors are rotting at the bottom.. so door swap is probably not a good idea. I was planning on pulling the doors apart for closer inspection, but if somebody already knows...

Been awhile since I have updated here. Back in September Sanchez decided to blow the head gasket. It was down for a couple of weeks until my husband had time to do the job but we got it done and it runs better than ever. Last weekend we went to URE with it and Shaggy was kind enough to be my co-pilot and give me some pointers on how to get Sanchez over the obstacles out there with ease. My husband took the video of me coming up Dutch John for the first time in it.

Picked up the Amigo from Joe Darlington the other day and the bumper he made for it looks amazing. Next up will be ordering a winch for it.

Hey babe, sorry I was too slack to actually get any photo or video of you the other day at Richland Road but I was able to get the two videos that others took while we were there. Credit has been given to the people who took each video in each video's description.

We got some lockable storage and a hi-lift jack installed on Saturday. Now I can actually carry stuff around without worrying about it walking off too easily.

Well my husband signed us up for a Big Creek ride this past Friday and Saturday. I was worried about how hard it was gonna be and guess what, it was even harder than I had feared, lol. I have say that even though Sanchez got some battle damage to her, she did really good out there. Even with the damage, Sanchez is still prettier than his K5 Blazer, lol.

That's gotta stink wrinkling an Amigo fender. As I understand it, they are only available OEM (or used). Think there is a guy in Ca parting an Amigo. Dennis

My wife hasn't posted here in a while, but after she wheeled Sanchez a few times, she decided she didn't want to wheel anymore, guess it wasn't her thing. We tried to sell the truck with everything on it since March but had no serious interest except for people wanting to trade junk or vultures wanting to buy the bumper off of it. Long story short, over my Christmas vacation I took all the cool stuff off and we are selling the bare bone Amigo on facebook marketplace (https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/it ... 730842180/). The bumper and winch went to a good home already. Here are some depressing pics of what it looks like stripped down and on wheels and tires that make it look like it skipped leg day. The truck still runs and drives fine, just looks like hell. If we don't end up selling it this way, probably gonna pull the engine next time I take vacation to sell it separate and then scrap the rest.
