Although it is a good idea it's damn near impossible. Lambo doors work with shocks that are hidden in behind you fenders. Since you would want these to work in the opposite direction you would have to cut wholes into the back side of the door frame for the shock arms to come through and secondly you'd have tyo have enough room in between the body and the interior panelling to hide these shocks. Oh and don't forget that your door wouldn't open that way, the width of the door would be too far for the lambo shocks to bring it out therefore your door would hit off the doorframe and it would never open more than i'd say maybe 6 inches or so if that.
Personally, i would go with the Lambo doors, but personally, i wouldn't have either.
I am suprised no one has said anything about this. A month or 2 ago, Truckin Magazine had a featured Dakota in it, and it had suicide doors. I can't seem to find it on www.truckinweb.com but i remember reading about it
