hey if anyone knows about the laws of converting a 2door into a 4door in new jersey would really appreciate it. As well as, has anyone done it before I'm sure its going to be a lot of work. Probably welding and cutting plus making hinges....anyways please if someone has info let me know thanks.

First, a little more information is needed about what you want to do....

I'm guessing, that since this is a Dakota Forum, you are talking about turning a single-cab Dakota into a 'Quad-Cab' Dakota? ('Quad-Cab' in Dodge/Ram truck-speak, is a true 4-door crew cab....)
And to try to answer part of your question, this would involve A LOT of specialized work, by an experienced body man who has some background in fabrication.

But since Dodge offered an actual Quad-Cab in both the 2nd and 3rd generation, why do you have to MAKE one?

hey thanks for the respond first of all. secondly it is not a single cab but instead a club cab which have the rear seats. my idea was to make it into a 4 door but suicide door style like other trucks. finally, i just am not aware if there is an legal problems with this type of conversion. hope anyone can help.

The only 'legal' problem you might have is if you don't build it correctly and it falls apart, injuring someone.
- No 'rules' in the U.S. on building something, unless you're in a state that does mandatory safety inspections.

So Gordo, do you have experience in custom vehicle fabrication?
