Side Door Lift Off Hinge For Cabinet - Ford E350

Anyone know if there is a good replacement for the side door lift off hinge that is normally welded to the side cabinet with the other bolted to the door. I bought my sportsmobile used and the original owner removed it cause he had damaged the table. Looking to build my own side table to replace it, but not sure what hinges are a good replacement. I called all of the sportsmobile shops, but they didnt have any advice. Sorry if this is in the wrong thread. Thanks!

Thanks hogasm. I have the original hinge that is bolted to the door but not the hinge that is typically welded to the side cabinet. I was hoping to find a direct replacement so I didn't have to redrill the door. Maybe they don't make the part anymore.

Perhaps I'm mistaken (I can't quite see all of the door in your photo), but that hardware looks like it's made to fit into matching holes in the cabinet, as in hanging from them. It's looks like there's four of them, all pointed upward, and the weight of a cabinet would likely keep it from going anywhere. In that case, no "female" parts needed, though maybe reinforcement around the opening?

Since I have never seen the original cabinet I am going by what Sportsmobile told me and from some pictures i found on the web. SMB indicated the "female" hinge is connect to the cabinet. The female part slides over the male hinge that is currently bolted to the door and a latch on the opposite side (missing in the picture) locks it in place. They designed it this way so it could be removed if desired or swing out for access to the storage behind the cabinet.

Maybe someone that has the side door cabinet could provide a close-up picture of their hinge configuration to help out. It would be appreciate.
