Default Want to make my rear doors to swing 180 degrees

I bought an extended cab 2002 Sierra last month and the extended cab doors only open 90 degrees. I was hoping that someone may have heard of a kit to make them open all the way (180 degrees-ish). Also, are there replacements for the factory AUX tape deck? Even just a box to hold stuff would be better.

Why the heck would you need them to open 180? I doubt it's even possible without the door rubbing the cab and destroying paint. Might be better to get a gullwing conversion(LOL, just kidding!)

No, my dad has a 2000 which is basically the same as the 2002. They only open 90*.

Let me know if you hear anything about the 180* kit...

As far as replacing the tapedeck goes, you could probably get some material and make a custom front for the front of it andadd some gauges or switches or something...
