    I have yet to use the rear sliding window in my 2009 Double cab. I always used it in my 2004 Access because I could reach back while driving and slide it open. Because I can't reach it, I never use it.

    I'm curious if anyone else uses their's and the body style you have (and I don't mean fat, thin or hourglass).



    FOR DOUBLE CAB OWNERS WHO USE IT...when do you open it? Before getting in or do you have go-go-gadget arms that can reach it?

    I actually have a jeep now. Imagine that.
    i open it for my dog. If hes in the bed, he pokes his head inside. If hes inside, he pokes his head outside.

    I'm a DC who uses it...

    If I think to open it before I drive I prefer to do it then. Otherwise I can put the truck in park at a stop light/sign and lean the seat way back and reach it. (I've even done that while driving once, but wouldn't recommend it.)

    Only 1500 miles on my double cab but the thought hasn't even crossed my mind to use it yet. Doubt I ever will. I had an electric in my F150 that I used all the time.

    I've got the access cab so I can reach back and open it while driving or at a light, etc. I like it on warm days when I have my drivers window down 1/2 way- a breeze comes through the slider and out the side plus it reduces the wind noise from having the drivers window down.

    I haven't had my DC very long but I've never used the sliding window, and I can't think of a situation where it would come in handy. I guess somebody in the back seat could reach through it to grab a beer out of a cooler in the bed as you go down the road. Wait, that would be illegal - nevermind...

    Any time I open the side windows in my AC I'll usually open that too- Cuts the noise down a bit and keeps the ventilation moving even when I'm stopped or whatever.

    I WOULD dig a power rear full window tho...
    and beer does not just taste GOOD....it tastes AMAZING!!
