Doors are for dummies, um, you can take out the engine, I know it weighs allot, and go Flintstones style! That way you can even cut out some of the floor for reduced weight.

Lose the trim, carpet, rear seats, stereo, spare tire, tail gate and mirrors (please ship to me), and replace any body parts you can with fiberglass!
