You could both get the door locks rekeyed by a locksmith.

Wait, do you mean have the mechanism redone to accept our stock keys? Or get keys made for the new locks? Cuz if we were just gonna make new keys, I'd have a spare made, he'd have one made, and we'd just swap keys when we trade doors.

Have new locks keyed to your old key.

Oh I gotcha. So we would need to buy lock cylinder blanks and bring them to a locksmith. That might be an option because then at least we can swap them in on our own time without rushing and being in a parking lot somewhere, lol.

Thanks for all the help. The other member is out of town until March, so I am patiently waiting for him to return so we can swap. I've waited a while, so I'm having to get a dark green with khaki upper for my silver with black top, lol. Already have the black mopar uppers ready to order, and I think I'll plastidip the bottoms until I save enough money to have them painted.

Hey Vin, or anyone else, do you know where I could find an assembly blowout of the full doors? I thought I found one on here, but can't find it again.
