The doors drag on the bottom, when opening and closing. The door is not aligned for there is a pin stripe that is lower on the door than on the ex-cab. How do I adjust the door?

These trucks had issues with the door pins wearing out the bushings, causing it to droop. You can get a full kit to replace the pins and bushings

How easy is it to fix a sagging door. It is very hard to close and it sags about 1/2 inch. Thanks for any help.

You will need to replaces the door pins & bushings for that door. It is fairly simple. You will need for someone to hold the door and then remove the pins that hold the door hinges together and then replace with new ones. You might be able to just replace the bushings but if your door has been like that for a while then you will probably have to replace pins and bushings. Check the door striker also to see if it needs to be replaced because when the door gets hard to shut it will destroy the striker. This should fix the sagging door. Let me know if I was of any help.
