Welcome!

Depends on your needs. A no compromise headache rack? I've thought a bar secured horizontally across the middle would work. It could be removed when not used and secured with a padlock when using. This is all just vapor in my brain right now. I haven't really thought it out at all. Just some occasional brainstorming I've done.

Not sure exactly how it all works, but I know there is a power window conversion for the rear window. If my mental image of how it would work is right, the lock would really become useless, and the window would be physically hooked up to the drive unit. If that is the case, the window would be as secure as your side windows.

On a related note, in 12 years of being a police officer, I have yet to investigate an auto B&E involving forcing the rear window of a pickup. Not saying it doesn't happen, but I have yet to hear of it, or see it.

Good luck with your quest for security.

^^ this.

Power rear window mod is linked in my sig. The sliding window cannot be forced open against the motor once the mod is installed. Not to mention, it would take a really skinny theif who could fit their body through the 12-inch-wide rear window
