I bought these a few months back and was worried about cutting into my door. Well I finally got over the fear and went for it. The instructions were very clear and thorough. It took me about 2 hours to do the first door because I kept checking and rechecking everything. It took a lot less time to do the passenger door.
These got my doors to close securely and align perfectly. I know they're not intended to suck the door in, but it's a happy side benefit. I don't have to worry about my doors popping open or having to slam them to close.
I had tried and retried adjusting the old latches endlessly. They would work for a few weeks/months but a constant pain. These have been on for a few weeks and no change since install, easy crisp secure closing and opening.
This is a great product and I would/will recommend them to anybody. Chris Donahue on 18th Sep 2016
I took my time so the install took a few hours. The directions were spot-on. I didn't anticipate having to removed to door glass, but it wasn't that difficult. The results are amazing. Not only does my door now shut easily, it actually pulled my door flush to the body. I know it's not advertised for this, but it greatly improved the look of the truck with the doors shut. This kit isn't cheap, but it is well worth the money. Quality hardware and instructions. I'd recommend this kit to anyone with the original latches. Corey on 26th May 2016
Latches were easy to install and work very well, all parts seem well made and fit perfectly. Prior to purchasing these latches, I purchased new reproduction stock latches and was not satisfied since I had to slam the doors to latch them, with the new Trique Manufacturing latches the doors close much nicer and no slamming is required. Thank you for a great product at a reasonable price. Unknown on 4th Mar 2016
This system is great!! I can now close my doors without slamming them and feel secure when driving. The doors popped open a few times with the old locks even after a lot of adjustments. Now I have no worries.
Easy to install and work great. Chris on 26th Nov 2015
