Alright, so I've misplaced my keys and have searched day and night for them with no success. I've come to the point where I think i'll have to replace the door cylinders/keys. I can still drive the truck as I replaced the ignition cylinder and have the spare for that. Has anyone replaced these before? and if so, is it just remove and replace? I think my worry is in the rear hatch. It has the keyed open for window/gate latch and I can't find these anywhere. Thanks in advance.

I did the doors and hatch on my 88 5 years ago. I don't remember what exactly had to be done, but I was done in less than an hour. Almost all of time was removing/reinstalling panels to get access (I didnt have the proper panel tools back then). I think the door locks are held in by a forked spring clip and the linkage is held on by metal or plastic clip.
The hatch, I don't remember.

The front doors are easy. You remove the door cards, roll the windows up, and there is a latch rod attached to a little pawl. I don't remember the exact style of the connection, but you have to remove that rod. Then, if you look at the edge of the door that faces rear when closed there is a big plain metal piece, pull it out. Then the door lock cylinders will come out. I've never done the hatch lock and have no info to offer there.

If your door lock retainers (the metal forks that you pull of out the door) are damaged PM me. I have an envelope of them sitting around here somewhere.

Awesome. I'm going to replace the door cylinders soon and the as for the rear hatch, I removed the back panel on the door and rigged it up so I can just open it from the inside. I'll fix this soon but for now it works. Thanks for the help.

@adsm08, thanks for the offer. I'll be sure to PM you if I need some replacement door lock retainers.
