I am trying to remove the doors from my 66' and I have having some issues, pretty much I dont know what I'm doing. At first I thought the is a cap on the top of the hinge that needs to be removed first (but I am not seeing it nor is anything popping out). I also thought the pin might need to be tapped out from the bottom (no luck there either). Is there a specific tap I need?

Any suggestions?

If you open the door at look down the A pillar there are two bolts per hinge. They have a Phillips head on them. When you remove these the hinges slide out.

You also need an impact driver, you will strip them out with a normal screwdriver, don't even try.

I was thinking I just needed to pop the pins out and remove the doors that way, however, just removing the screws makes thing much easier.
