Default Door replacement compatability

I have a 2008 cruiser with some damage on the driver door. I went to my local wrecker to see if they would have a replacement. The closest I came was either a 2001 or 2003 cruiser that is the same body style as mine.

Question is, would the doors be interchangable or do I need to find a 2006 or newer model?

As long as you're not interchanging convertible doors, every year is compatible.

If you do swap the doors, just remember to remove the I.D. tag off your door and transfer it over to the donor door. If not, the VIN won't match and if you have an inspection where you live, you'll have to explain it. They peel off pretty easily. I did that on mine with I replaced the driver door with one from a 2002 model.

Mirrors can be different. As can the harness. Easily transferred over. Be real carful with the wire on the lock cylinder. Or you will have issues with remote lock on the door. If your mirrors have the same plug. You should be good. Might check all the things that plug up to be sure. Do t cut and splice. Remove lower dash corners and uplug harness and pull out of the hinge piller. 01 and 02 are listed as not the same but the only difference is the extra peace of weatherstrip along the front lower door. Have used one to know this. I'm pretty sure the vin sticker on 03 up will try to void out if you don't use heat. The only one I got off so far was an 01.
