My 95 F-150 has messed up doors on it & my buddy has doors off a 1988. I was wondering if they will interchange or if at least the door glass (not the wind wings). It looks like all the mounting points are the same, but I don't want to tear stuff apart if it is not going to work. I would appreciate any advice.
Is there some sort of adjustment on the door itself? The door on my 96 was replaced before I bought it. But it looks like it doesn't fit quite right, not to mention that when closed sitting inside the truck I can look back and see daylight through the crease and hear/feel air blowing through it as I'm going down the road (weatherstrip is 100% intact on door), when closed looking at it from outside, it doesn't look like it's fits quite right. while the passenger side door looks perfectly fine. Second.. I changed my lock cylinder (new key) passenger side door took another key and apparently nobody has the spare key to the new drivers door, it possible to get the doors keyed to the new key I have for the ignition?
Is there some sort of adjustment on the door itself?
The hinge and striker plate all have a 3 way adjustment. Use a torx bit to loosen the bolts enough so you have to hit the door to move the hinge. Then, close the door gently. You may need to do this several times to get it aligned properly. It took me 3 trys to get my door where it would close properly.

Your best bet on this is to either go to a bone yard that has keys for the locks or take it into a locksmith to have them re-keyed. It would probably be cheaper to go to the boneyard.
CKDC - I'd replace the hinges or repin them. All four doors on my crewcab started sagging after a while (the drivers door being the worst as it's used most often). Simple to do - hammer out the old pin, install new bushines and hammer in the new pin and it's done. Bolt door back onto hinges or bolt door and hinges back onto cab, depending how you took it apart.
Dehamma - prices for used parts vary wildly based on condition, location, the yard itself, the yard owners mood, etc. One yard by me in NJ for example wants $75 a door, with glass and anything attached to the door. That's not unreasonable if the glass is in good shape, the window/latch mechanisms work, and the mirror on the outside is intact. If not, find another door (or several) with good bits and combine them to make a door worth $75
A yard out in PA I go to once in a blue moon wants $35 for a complete door. So it varies.
What about internal parts of the doors, specifically:
-Power lock actuators
-Window regulators (And variances between power and manual versions)
Will these items transfer between any year of 1987-1996?
Yes.. everything is the same. I put '92 doors on my '90, and removed the manual controls from the '92 doors and installed the harware for power windows and locks from my original doors. I also used the old main window glass in the newer doors.
