might be a dumb question.

Hey I'm a newb so this might be a dumb question but, how do you get the pins out of the doors. It looks like there are threads but no head to turn it. I got some new doors but don't know how to switch them out.

What do you mean by pins on the doors? To take the door off just take off the two nuts if they're not already off and lift up

If you see threads, it means the nuts have already been removed for you.

It could be that it'll be loose enough to just come right off when you lift up...could be that you'll need to work it back and forth a bit while you lift to get it to start raising up and eventually come off.

Getting it back on...a little more fun.

Might be a good idea to have an extra set of hands available for the first couple of times.

Roll the window down before you start, and dont forget to release the strap at the bottom of the door before you start.

Its all good after you get the hang of it.

Just noticed you have half doors too which makes it really easy. Remove the uppers and unhook the strap that holds to door from flying open. Open the door 90° or so and just lift straight up using your thighs. It may be tough the first time so you can spray some wd40 up there and some even use a floor jack and 2x4 to ease them off. Next time should be much easier.
