I have successfully removed Finder from the dock to make Forklift app (another explorer app)a permanent habit for exploring files and folders. The only issue is the folders now as double clicking on them opens Finder as is expected.

So, is there any terminal command to run or system file to edit that makes this a possibility? To make another app the default opener of folders on OS X 10.9.
