I have a 95 Chevy Suburban and the drivers side rear barn door did the same thing. There are two rods connecting the drivers side door handle, the one just inside the jam, only accessable when you open the passenger side rear door. One rod goes to the top latch and the other to the bottom. Where the rods attach to the latches, both top and bottom, there are small wire clips that hold the rods in place. But, to attach the rods to the handle mechanism, small plastic clips were used. I had one bust allowing the rod to float freely.
If you remove the plastic window surround and the bottom door panel, you can reach in and manually pull the free floating rod to release the door.
I bought new clips, replaced both as they were very brittle, at the local Chevy dealer for $1.50 ea.

When certain tail lights won't fit the Suburban with barn doors, it means they were not made for that vehicle or they are defective. The rear barn doors were discontinued on the Suburban in 2005.
To open the suburban barn door more fully, you need to release the limiting straps (they look like black metal straps that prevent over-travel of doors). To release them, as you are opening the door, push on them to release them from the door. Once released, the door will open fully. To engage the limiting straps, simply close the doors. They will snap back into place.
Not to my knowledge there is not. I have a 90' suburban with the barn doors. The hinge mounts are a part of the actual body. I do not believe the mounts are manufactured into the body of a suburban with a tailgate.

Cutting the back off from a "barn door" donor and welding it onto the "tailgate" recipient.
The last year they made barn doors is on the 2007 models. It was an option to all previous year models.

The door hinges must be welded on. Also the bottom of the door frame must be changed to support the lock (this may also require welding?). Look at a Suburban with barn doors and you will see what I mean.

I believe 1999; in 2000 they switched over to the "newer" body style where they offered the barn doors and lift gate style.
