Re: Door Handles for my XH

E series door handles are interchangable because they are the same door so take your pick.

I would go EL (no passenger side lock) as i did on my old EB. It wont be a simple job like it is with EA, EB and ED's but.

Get a door handle from the wreckers and cut all the bolts and stuff off the back so you can put it against the door to see if it will sit flush.

Hope this has been some help.

Re: Door Handles for my XH

No door handle's other than the original ones will bolt straight in, any other door handle(eg. el) will require fairly extensive mods to the doorskin and inner doorlock, and would require the hole to be filled where the barrel lock go's, or there would be two barrel lock's in each door.

Re: Door Handles for my XH

Hey does youre ute have el type injection or the ed style? I only ask because I have an xh longreach and was wondering if the injection clears the shocker tower.

I checked with a panel beater today and he said *Sure bring it in and ill fit later model handles for ya.But you will have to sell the beast to afford to pay me . Another panel beater said they only cost like $12.00 each from ford.
