    I see a lot of parts for sale on the intarnets that have the year range from 1995-2000. Will parts for a 2000 really fit on a 98 because I'm having a hell of a time finding 98 extended cab quarter windows that aren't reflective. It's almost like a mirrored sheen to the outside that comes with the OME windows. I bought a pair of replacement ones because I thought the problem might've just been specific to my truck or model but they ended up being mirrored too.

    Is this aspect specific to 98s because I haven't seen this on later years, hence the wanting to purchase extended cab windows for a 2000.

    Does anyone know if the "blue," non-tinted, non-privacy quarter windows come reflective, too? If not, I can tint them myself and be done with it.

    98 and 2000 are the same sub generation so they should fit fine. I've never seen reflective ones myself.

    Thanks for the help! It's not completely reflective but it looks like there's a silver coat to the outside of the glass as compared to my front windows that are almost straight black with the tint.

    Ah, gotcha. My 98's back windows were black. It didn't have the blue like you're talking about.
