    Other than the factory clip lock that comes with it, does anybody use a secondary device?

    What more could stop someone from kicking/busting it if they want in? Besides welded metal?!

    Just extra security. Same applies to drivers windows. If they want to get in they can, but having an extra security feature only delays the trespasser to gain access to the vehicle, correct?

    If you're really that concerned, use a piece of wood to prevent it from being slid open.

    Personally, I used a shell with a locking rear window :cool:

    For that to work you need to hire a security guard along with it.

    My theory is this: if a asshole wants to break into your truck he's gonna get in and probably not through your sliding window. WAY faster to break the window. Same with your house, who cares what kind of locks you put on your door. Most times assholes aren't going in through your door.

    It would take somebody much more crafty than I to get past the factory latch (I've tried on my old Ranger). I think breaking the glass is the only easy way past it.

    I put a wood ruler in the slot. 1/2 the time the window would slide past it. I guess i would need wood a bit thicker, exactly the width of the slot. Dowel seems like a good idea.

    Trust in God but lock your doors.

    A few years ago I had my 4runner broken into. Was staying at a friends house and in the middle of the night my alarm goes off. I run out and they robbers are GONE.

    Apparently the new thing is assholes use a piece of broken porcelain to throw at your window. Shatters instantly. Then run up, grab your shit and run. I took literally 60 seconds to get outside and the assholes were GONE.

    I'm pretty sure they're not going to sit there and fiddle with the latch.

    Nothing.> I find the clip is secure enough. If someone wants in, they'll smash the window.

    I'll do this...

    I still think the obvious thing for the double cab is to have a one piece power slider.
