QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
I've seen the long panel kit for the door. What does the short panel look like? What is the difference between the two?
The first 3 images on the product page show the "Short Panel". The other 2 images of the blue truck, shows the "Long Panel". The Short Panel is designed to be used with a custom door panel and requires you to remove the factory interior panel. Our Long Panel is designed to work along with the factory interior panel. In the image you will see that the factory interior panel is white. The blue center section is our long panel that comes with the kit.
Can you add power door locks to the 57 pickup latches
Yes. Each latch comes with locking provisions to be used with power locks.
I bought the long panel kit. Now im thinking I want to run a full lenght door panel. Could I buy the short panels separetely? Also with this kit, can you run one piece windows?
You can purchase the short panels for your needs. You should not experience any issues installing a one piece window kit.
Are the long panel plates available separately?
If you have purchased the short panel kit and find yourself needing the long panels, we can certainly get you fixed up. Just give us a call at 1-866-987-4783
