Mopar door hinge repair kit.

Has anybody installed the door hinge repair kit on a model older than 1993? The TSB says it's only for 1993-1997 Cherokees. I have a 1989 Comanche and the top hinge on the driver's side is pulling away from the body. I'm wondering if the dealer won't install it because it's not in the listed years on the TSB.

Re: Mopar door hinge repair kit.

I remember they did a cherokee on trucks or whatever that show is on spike tv during the powerblock when they pulled the frame back out, it was just on a couple of weeks ago, not with Stacy either. They had the fender off and welded in some kind of plate or something that was supposed to be the best fix.

I'd bought the kits for a 92, but never got around to bolting them in. The 92 hinges looked identical to my 94's.

Re: Mopar door hinge repair kit.

I don't know if this is of any interest to you, but there was a really neat fix for this problem posted in Mod Tech a couple of weeks ago:

That looks like the best option for fully separated hinges, but mine is still mostly attached with no rust. I'm just wondering if the Mopar kit will work with 92 and older models.
