    So i shattered the passenger side of my rear window today, but its not completely broken. Is the back window laminate glass? I have heard these are quite expensive to replace so i wouldn't mind just living with it being shattered for now if i can without it actually breaking into a million pieces... just a pain in the ass to try and see out of.

    I believe they are just tempered glass. Only the front windshield should be laminated.:cool:

    Ahhh crap... well its holding itself together right now but i guess it could fall apart at any time. I hit a really nasty bump dodging a haul truck on a logging road, and i guess it flexed the truck so much the bolt holding in my backrack came up and hit the bottom corner of the glass

    Oh okay got yah. Well if I were you, I'd call the dealership first to check out their rip off prices then call your local auto window places around town to compare prices and get that sucker fixed. I couldnt stand to see a Tacoma with a broken window of any kind!:(

    I broke my rear window when I hit a good whoop in the Mojave desert, I hit hard enough my Snugtop even with the safety pin it came right out and smashed my passenger side and broke it.
    I just paid my comp deductible and had my insurance replace, that window is one-whole piece, the invoice to the ins co. was $998.

    That's ironic. I thought those back racks were meant to protect the window.

    That's too bad it happened though. My friend broke his window on his RAM loading in base board (just touch the corner of the window) it was over $1300 as it was power.
    He did like the above poster said, paid the $300 deductible and went through insurance.

    Haha ya window would have been perfectly intact without the backrack. Good investment for the truck? probably not. Il probably put it back on but use a bolt with a smaller head so it wont happen again.

    Oh and called a couple places for quotes last night, speedy glass wants $369 including tax and install... lots better then what i thought!
