Rear Sliding Window

Postby deathphoenix99 [OP] » Jun 06 2012, 5:10pm

Alright, let me start off by saying this is something I plan on doing in the future, but right now I don't have the funds to do so.


Anyways, I hate the solid back windows, I prefer to drive around with the windows down and the back one open, and if I need a drink, I can have my cooler in my bed and easily accessible. Well, single cabs no longer have a sliding rear window which sucks IMO. In the future I'm planning on either buying an older slider or maybe even get the power rear window. Only thing I don't like about the power one, is that it's a smaller opening. So, 99-07 body style trucks use the same rear window correct? This is what I've read and would like to confirm it.

Also, I found this on ebay, power sliding window and if I had the money, I'd be all over it right now.

If any of you have the rear power sliding window, could you take a picture of the back cab wall with the seats folded down (if they fold down) or at least of where the power motor is located. I want to see if there's room to install a power sliding window in a single cab. Thanks.

Also, have any of you installed a NBS slider window in your 2007 NNBS?

You probably already know about the prominent rust factor associated with the rear sliding windows. Moisture over time will rust out the back corners of your cab even with a well sealed sliding back glass. Just something to think about if you plan on keeping this truck for 15 or 20 years

I'm not too worried about rust, I'm accustom to it growing up in Indiana. My dads 99 has a rear slider and I prefer them. I like opening it up in the summer.

I appreciate the response. This is something I still want in the future, it just may be awhile before I can purchase one.
