Tip & How-To about Ford F-250
If replacing the hinges on a truck you always have a pain of a time re aligning the door. Unbolt the door/hinge bolts directly on the inside of the door first (not behind the fenders). The use a pencil to mark the outer edges of the actual hinges for alingment. This will allow you to set the new hinges in the exact same place as the original ones. When they are on start the 4 door bolts and tighten the very top and very bottom hinge (check for alingment). If set tighten the last two bolts or adjust accordingly. This way yo only have to do minor adjustment on the rear of the door bolts versus all bolts and saved time by removing the fenders to adjust the hinge/body bolts..
