    Dont know what price u are getting for the lambos but full suicide door kit goes for $400, and most lambo hinges ive seen were $1000 + so...
    I don't know about all of that. A shop around me wanted in excess of $750 per door to suicide 'em plus the cost of hinges. So that comes out to roughly $2,000.

    I got my hinge for I think $1,200 or so (I think higher though).
    Only thing 4 doors are good for is...1 car...

    What I'm saying tho is that suicide hinges are $400 and u got your hinges for $1200, so if he is getting free install, or even if he paid the dude $800 to install the suicides then the prices would be about the same, if not cheaper

    Ok, I gotcha.

    Either way I'm still for the lambos. They're still kida rare to see on S-series trucks unlike suicide doors.

    if u find a shop to suicide doors ur looking at $400 for the kit.. roughly, and about $800-$1500 a door.... just a heads up..

    i did suicde doors for my buddy for $500 a door with the kit included.. sooo he got a fuckin deal...


    but yea man do lambo ur doors.. when i look at a huge hole in someones truck i say to my self "that takes balls" and plus how much cooler is that.... lambo dorors are just played out... suicide doors are old school and have been the mod of all mods over their years.... and besides lambos only look good on doors with no top door frame liek where its just glass...

    To put Suicide doors in the same category of possabilities as the rag top and lambos, the whole job would have to be done for $750 or less including parts and labor. Roughly speaking....

    lambo door dont look right on trucks, like phatfarmer2 said they only look good on car the dont have top door frames just glass. plus i think lambos are ricey myself, i you are going to do anything to your door suicide them. as for the rag top you better make sure thats what you want because once you cut that huge ass hole it would be a bitch to close it up. if you gonna rag top it it better be body drop and laid out so when you walk up to it your lookin in the roof

    if u go with the lambos make sure they are the 90degree angle ones.
    also known as 12 oclocks...

    other wise there is no sence (imo) to get em cause they dont give u to much room to get in and out.

    You already said you would prefer suicide doors so I would do the rag top now, then either save for the suicides, or possibly get those sponsored also.

    I sure will. Thanks for all the opinions..you guys came up with a lot of points that I had not thought about and they helped me make up my mind.

    I have three weeks now to decide on the doors for sure. (they wont be able to design/engineer the kit and do the install until after SEMA in Nov) I believe I am going to get the doors for a couple of reasons.

    1. I will save at least $3K
    2. They will help the Blazer stand out more at shows.
    3. I will have a picture of the Blazer in a catalog, website and possibly in some magazine advertisements.:bigthumb:
    4. It will increase the probability of me getting more sponsors.
    5. This is a good thing since I dont have alot of $$$$.
