All you have to do is disconnect the door harness, pop the boot for said harness out off the cab side and take the two pins for the hinges out. Just have a set of hands to steady the door after you take the hinge pins out. Can be done solo but it's harder that way.

Is that something I need to change when I pull the door or do they come out without damage? Can I reuse them? I assume I should lubricate all the hinges and pins with a synthetic grease when I re install?

You have to remove the pins to take the door off the truck. There are two on each side. Autozone sells the pin kits in the help section. There is a brass sleeve that has to be knocked out while the actual pin is removed.

If you want to unbolt the hinge and wrestle with getting it perfectly aligned you can. The hinges on my frame are bolted and welded. I guess it is a crash part.

So best to jus take the door off the hinges and leave the other part of the hinge attached to the body?

Thats what I do. I only mess with the body hinge if it needs adjusting afterwards. I would do new pins, as the old bushing is probably worn out.
