I haven't done it, but I'm curious why you're taking it out. Had any problems with it?

I too am perplexed as to why you would remove the slider.

It's easy. Not glued in or anything-just have to push the rubber from the inside, and slowly work your way around until it pops out. No tools required.

Isn't that a similar rationale to the one used by people who don't 'believe' in seatbelts? They don't use them because someone, sometime, somewhere was wearing a seatbelt and their car caught fire and they were killed and would have survived but for the fire...never mind that the seatbelt allowed them to survive the crash so as to be killed by a fire that is rarer than getting hit by lightening.

The fire you had, has to be at least a one in a million thing...it is different than a seatbelt...until there's a smell in the cab you need to air out quickly, then you'll be wishing you had a slider...

Looks like he has 4 other windows that he can roll down.

That'll create a disseminating swirl rather than a clearing draft through...

If the fire was on the inside you wouldn't want to roll the windows down until the fire was out anyways. Wind to a fire excellerates the flame.

Definitely...but there are some smells you just want out of the way before she gets back in the truck...
