Just wondering if the 2 rear door system will fit on my van with the 3 doors?

Will everything line up and work right?

You will need to install the upper hinges on the body. Not sure if lowers are in the correct position, but a tape measure will tell you real quick.

I believe the hinges are in the same locations for either design (I've had both). However, there are two upper latch strikes which will not be present on the body prepared for a "Dutch-door" system. Further, the Dutch-door vehicles will have hinges, supports, and upper glass latch strikes which will be unnecessary on a two-door van.

You're going to really want to have a two-door system, because it will be a lot of work to do it properly.
