    Hi guys,

    I have a solid rear window, but I saw this posting on CL from this guy who is selling brand new in the box tinted slider rear windows for $40. He says he has 50 of them, but does not install them. Sounds like a deal to me, how about you??

    So I guess my questions are, is this easy to do if you've never replaced a window? Any tips or advice.

    Should I just get it done by a shop?

    Should I just stick with the solid rear window?

    Any info would really help my decision. Thanks!

    P.S. sorry if this is a re-post I searched for it but couldn't find anything.

    I would suggest having it professionally done. It is not a long procedure but has to be done right and often with special tools. You will be taking most of the cost out by purchasing your own window.

    its easy to do all you need is an extra pair of hands a thin rope a little longer than the circumferance of the window and some time there is no glue

    I love the sliding rear glass. I see you have a standard cab but on my ext cab I like to open both back access windows along with the back glass and you get a really nice air flow without getting bashed in the face with wind.

    i put one in my 03,it's very easy to do.put one hand in the cab against the back glass and push gently and it will pop right out.put the seal on the slider,with some dishwashing soap on the seal.press it back in the opening starting at one coner.get somebody to help hold the window in position from the outside ,and i took a small hook and helped the seal back in the opening from the inside,it took maybe 10 min.

    Definately easy to do with the rope method described above. I did my old ford and it took about 45 minutes including removing the old window.

    Well if I decide to go through with this, how about $40? It's got an apple sticker on it, just to let you know.
