Sheet metal interchange

I recently purchased a 2005 quigley e350xl and I'm in need of the left side barn door and a driver door. Being in Alaska scrap yards and parts are a little harder to find. What year vans should I look for to find the parts I need?

Also what are people using for front door check straps to keep the van doors from creasing in a wind storm when ripped from your hand?

Thank for the advice.

I think they have been the same since 1992 and should interchange.

I agree, I think the doors are the same but the hinges are not. Ford used several different suppliers and there's no rhyme or reason to when. That shouldn't really matter though. They all mount the same I think, just open and close differently.

Coincidentally, this just happened to my dad's 2012 Ford E-van (work van). Wind caught it and blew it open, creasing the front fender :-(

I guess Ford figured the hinges and embedded stops are robust enough not to need the more constraining metal straps used on the "60" side door and rear doors.

Brian, when I work in the oil patch they had a nylon strap that they added to the door to prevent this from happening. I haven't been able to locate that part so I was wondering what everyone else was doing. I have buddy who still works up there checking to see if he can locate a part number or vendor for me. I will post it if I find out.

Thanks
