Power slide rear window

I just ordered an '11 F250 Supercab. I asked my dealer to get and install a manual rear slider window when it came in. He called around, and the manual slide rear window is more expensive than the factory power slider, not even figuring in installation. I looked at about 3 internet places and confirmed this. So, who has a power slide rear, what do you think of it, and if you have had one for a while, is it as durable as a regular power window?? Thanks, Pete

I have the power slider in my truck...hardest thing about it is trying to remember which way is open/shut for the control.

Had the truck for almost a whole 3 weeks now...so far so good...having opened/closed it less than 10 times. It is probably as reliable as your power windows and gets used less.

No problem with mine yet. Had the truck 4 months. It is hard to remember which way to push the button though.

you will wish you had a power slider, the first time that you have to reach back and open it from the front seat.

Manual slider cost

Yeah, I wondered how a manual slider could cost more than a factory power slide. I did an internet search,and selected 3 (admittedly not many ) random sites, input '11 F250 Supercab, and the cheapest manual slider I found was $265, possibly plus freight, and the instalation job. Eastern Montana doesn't have a lot of shops, so my info was all internet. The factory powerslide MSRP is $250. Even with my phobia of electric things, I had them add the powerslide. I forgot to put in when I posted first time, the only way you can get a manual slider factory installed is with the regular cab, manual slide not available with the Super or Crew cabs, powerslide only with them. so the manual slide would have to have been aftermarket. My neighbor just got a Supercab gasser they ordered, it has most of the things I ordered, including the slider. Looks good. Pete

Get the power slider. As far as the button, it is just like the windows, push to open, and pull to shut.

Haha!! That's so simple and true. Had one in a 2005 F350 at a shop I used to work at. It never worked well, but my 2011 is flawless.
Like it way better than a sunroof.
