What is a Front Door?

Well this one is not too hard to figure out. However, putting it plainly it’s the drivers side or passenger side door on the front of the vehicle. In the event its a 2door it’s still this part. It just means there is no rear door on that vehicle.

How much does a used front door usually cost?

There can be some really good savings on body parts, especially doors, since they normally include all the electrical components.  The price ranges from $200 up to around $700/$800.

Things to keep in mind when buying

Be very sure to verify the condition of the door. Ask what grade it is and if it is “Insurance Quality”. Does it have dings? Get a picture if at all possible. Verify if it include door panel, electrical items etc.

Installation Tips

Be sure to know whether or not you plan to paint it. Even if you matched the color the donor vehicle may have faded more or less than yours and the color won’t be exact many times, even if the same color code is used in your purchase. This of course can make a difference in what your installation costs.

Ongoing maintenance

Keep the hinges greased and don’t kick your door or it will get dented.
