    I'm ordering a new Tacoma in the morning. I would really like to get the power options but don't need cruise control and the rear sliding window is a real concern. When I was younger we referred to them as car thief doors. The current ones look to small for most car thiefs to get through but I'm more worried about wind noise and water leaking especially over time as the rubber deteriorates. So how well do does the rubber hold up and what about wind noise and water leaking through?

    i've personally never had any problems with mine and even open its still pretty quiet. i hunt so i put a cb antenna on my truck and i ran the cord through the rear window and i happened to get the rubber out of its groove and i still to this day have never got it back right. but still no leaking.

    side tube step bars, and a trd skid plate. Hood protector, and wade in-channel guards. K&N CAI, Dynomax catback exhaust. Weathertech floormats, and door scuff guards. White stubbie antenna.
    I never had a problem with mine for noise, or leakage. AND THEN IT GOT BUSTED OUT!! I tossed a rubbermaid container into the back, and the cap popped off and shattered the back. So, I just replaced it with a solid window. Never really used the slider anyway.

    I like mine for looks and functionality. I hade a leak in the passengers corner. I just used window sealant and carefully resealed it. That was two weeks ago. We have had a lot of rain in the last two days, It leaks no more.

    Mine is good, no noises,no leaks. My view on a thief entry is keep the cab free of cords,covers,bag, or anything to entice a thief. That has worked for 27 yrs and counting.

    Love my sliding rear window. I open it all the time if it's above 50 out side. When you have the rear window open and roll down the fronts it creates a very nice breeze in the cab.
