Newer ones do. They have a popper above the rear license plate. And hinges.

That's pretty damn sad, when you think about it.
Oh well. I guess if noobs are learning all the special parts mentioned here, they're not creating more "How big a tire..." threads.

Im sorry, not to derail this thread too far, but your post may have solved one of my problems.

My front doors, when opened fully, close half way then require a much large amount of force than I feel they SHOULD and I knew they needed greased based on this. Could you explain (Maybe even share a picture) so I can understand your post?

I feel like a super NOOB right now.....

I shared the blinker fluid pic on my facebook also

Can fully understand this. A few days back I solved an issue with my door locks this way. Turns out my 93 didnt have the "noise maker" under the dash and that makes it so your power locks wont lock. Lets just say they work now and my truck beeps. Lol.

Hard to see but I loosened all four of these bolts, then removed the bottom two, put a washer in between and reassembled. Tighten them an slowly close the door, your body lines should line up, if not you will need more or less washers.
