    I have one of those windows on my reg cab, it works ok. My dad's double cab has gone through two and both of them leak, not sure if it's the windows problem or what, he is getting an oem window next week to hopefully fix the issue. On my reg cab the window doesn't really stick on, on the double cab though you can see the seal around the window seems to stick out quiet a bit.. I can take pics I wonder if anyone else has the same issue.

    I had one of those windows on my 2002 Chevy Single cab. The original was replaced with I had a crash in the truck. The window worked flawless for the following 10 years. I sold the truck to my cousin who has not had any issues with it yet. If leaks aren't coming from the the sliding window, I'm going to guess its installation error. Mine did have a healthily does of silicon on the inside that was covered by the inner plastic trim.

    I once had to break into my truck through the sliding window when I left my keys inside with the truck while it was On. I never had issues even after that fiasco. OP, if you really need it, I say buy it, just make sure to have it installed properly and remember the silicon bead on the inside.

    Looks like the seller has a 100% score for feedback with a score of 1191. I'd check out some of the feedback remarks and try to find one with a similar piece of glass. I'd feel pretty good with buying it with a score like that.

    I have one in my 2015 and honestly if I could sell it I would. Without it being powered it does not get used. I have had it opened once and like it when it is opened but having to go in the back seat to open and close it doesn't happen. I know it easy to do that but just don't spend time to do it.

    My 2015 was one week old when my slider was shattered to steal the temp tag taped to it. Had the whole back window replaced through Safelite, a reputable glass shop, for $250 total. Installation and 10% state tax included. It's a great quality replacement and so cheap that I didn't mess with insurance.
