    Probably annoying as shit to get to stay in place. But hey, it cheap. Buy it and try it out.

    Too much to list, but enough to get me in trouble. Repeatedly.
    What I did on my old truck (94 Mitsubishi Might Max with a Lifetime Super Sport aluminum shell) was to get some foam garage door weatherstrip from Home Depot and glue a single, continuous piece from about three inches below one side, up around the top, and back down the other side, leaving about three inches below the bottom edge of the window. I glued it onto the truck's window frame, but it could have just as easily and effectively been done on the shell's frame, as well. I could have glued it all the way around the bottom, too, but I wanted fresh air.
    It worked perfectly. I was able to have all the advantages of a boot and a sliding window, for about $10 worth of weatherstrip and $5 worth of 3M weatherstrip adhesive. I stopped all the debris from collecting between the windows, kept the weather out, and yet still had fresh air from where it was not sealed up along the bottom.
    I just got a shell (fiberglass Snugtop) on my new Taco, and am likely going to do the same with it.
