will 1987 doors fit my 1986 F-150?

I have a chance to get doors from an 87-91, and want to know if they will bolt directly onto my 1986 F-150? I could get them for $300 with glass latches, interior trim and everything, but want to make sure I wont have any issues installing them. The windows are hand crank, so there shouldnt be any wiring issues. If any knows of any issues please let me know.
Thanks.

Yes they will fit no problems. You can even put your old door panels and such on the newer doors.

The door shell is virtually the same and will work 1980-1996.

The door internal components are a little different between 1980-1986 / 1987-1991 and 1992-1996, but you can remove the components and replace them with the correct year, or use the whole door.

Most notable change is the vent window wing. The vent window wing changed in 1987 and again in 1992, and this changed the roll down window size as well.

The window rubber can be changed without taking the windows out of the door, but the wing windows will need to taken loose. Lifting the door glass out will allow a bit more room to chip out the old, rock hard rubber, and it makes it a bit easier to work the new rubber into place. Of course, there's also the option of just setting the glass down inside the door. One way or the other, it has to be gotten out of the way.

Just for information's sake, my '85 has '89 doors on it. Including the '89 panels (they are the same color as my dash, and fit fairly well with it). I do have the original '85 door handle and window crank. I like them better, since they're metal and don't break like ALL the newer plastic ones do.

Yea I am keeping my 86 handles and cranks because I like the metal better too. I am just hoping to replace the window rubber without having to completely remove the window.

I don't know if you can do it without removing the window, however doing so isn't too terribly difficult. Removing the wing window is the first step... A few screws should hold it in. Two in the door frame, one behind the door panel. Then you just undo the fasteners that hold the window to the track, and pull up and out! Simple as pie.

Yes you can change the rubber weatherstrip without removing the window, or loosing the vent wing, if you have cranking windows. Power windows this will not work.

Remove the door panels.

Roll the window all the way down.

Pull the old weatherstrip out of the channel, then roll the window up letting the window go outside the rubber into the bear metal channel. Reach in and remove the rest of the weatherstrip.

Install the new weatherstrip by rolling the window down into the bottom of the channel then installing the rubber weatherstrip around the top. Roll the window up into the weatherstrip. Install the bottom section of weatherstrip. Roll the window down back into the weatherstrip. Then press in the remaining middle part into the channel.

Use silicone lubricant to make this easier, and to help protect the rubber weatherstrip from cracking, by occationally cleaning your seals with it.

I've done tons of them both power and manual by removing the door panel, lowering the window next remove the old rubber. Now coat the new weatherstrip with go-jo or other hand cleaner that is slippery, now just feed the rubber down and by rolling the glass up and catching the end roll the glass down & bit by bit you can get it installed.

One other thing, the rubber has a 90 degree ish bend to it, I assume that goes towards the back of the door?
