    Howdy all, my middle sliding section of my rear glass slidder shattered the other day, and I'd love to be able to find just the middle section instead of paying around $300 or so to have entire rear glass slider replaced and installed. Anyone got any ideas on what to do or have a that part their willing to sell?? Let me know please, thanks!

    I replaced the side windows with lexan on my truck. You can't use standard window tint on it but the spray-on tint that people use on their tail lights would probably work great.

    Cost is materials, consumables, and time. Not too bad.

    My understanding is the whole rear window has to be replaced. This coming from a buddy that owns a glass shop. I haven't done any research tho.

    Thanks for info! I'm going to try out the plexiglass for time being and see if that can get me by for a bit. Yea all I've been told by glass shops or salvage places is the entire section has to be replaced. Will see how it goes, thanks guys!
