SWAPING NON POWER DOORS WITH FULL POWER DOORS?

ANYBODY DONE A DOOR SWAP BEFORE?
WAS WONDERING HOW HARD IT WOULD BE?

TRUCK CURRENTLY HAS NON POWER DOORS THAT ARE RUSTY.
I JUST PURCHASED A SET OF XLT DOORS THAT ARE IN GREAT SHAPE BUT THE GUY CUT THE WIRING HARNESS TAKING THE DOORS OUT.

IS A XL MODEL TRUCK EQUIPPED FROM FACTORY WITH THE PROPER PLUGS UNDER DASH? OR DOES EVERYTHING HAVE TO BE HARD WIRED?

I would think not. It will probably have to be hard wired, but that should be simple

I would love to know this as well. I asked the same thing about power seats. I also have a XL and I want to put newer model leather seats in but they are all power leather. I hope the plugs are under the dash, but I'm not sure. You would think Ford would put them in but would not put in window motors and seats motors. Im sure theres other plugs that would be needed under the hood going into fuse boxes but this question my never be answered? If you find out, please send me a PM and let me know. Thanks allot.

You didn't say where the harness was cut but you'll want to avoid splices where the wires go from the door to the body. There's allot of flexing there and it's already a common failure point. I'd grab a full harness from a junk yard.

Get yourself one of these at any auto parts store:



Mount the fuse block under the dash and run a heavy lead from the battery to it. Now you have 8 circuits to power whatever you want. Run a lead from the block, through the doorjam and wire it up. I would get a factory boot and loom to run the wires through the doorjam.

THE WIRES ARE CUT OUTSIDE THE DOOR. THINK ITS PLENTY TO GET THREW THE KICK PANEL.

I REALLY LIKE THAT FUSE BLOCK IDEA.

ALSO I JUST GOT A WIRING SCHEMATIC OF THE DOOR. BOY IS THAT A BIG HELP.
SO THIS WEEKEND IM GOING TO TEST EVERYTHING. MAKE SURE ALL IS GOOD IN THE DOORS.

CANT WAIT TO HAVE ALL THOSE OPTIONS YOU LUCKY XLT GUYS HAVE
