Rear Window Swap

I was looking at going from a sliding rear to a solid rear so that my company logo is nice and flat. I'm sure this has been done before...Was it hard? what should i know/look out for? tips tricks? thanks guys.

You will not only need the glass, but you will also need the gasket that goes with the solid glass

Looking for Blue 40-20-40 seats. PM me !!!!!!!

Put feelers out in your area (craigslist etc.) for someone looking to swap the other way 'round. I would love to have a beer window in my IDI, since the topper has one which is totally useless with a solid cab window.

super easy to install.. Except hard to explain.... uh, You have to wrap a rope or twine around the new window. around the outside edge. You put the rope into the crack in the gasket and put your window up to the truck and pull one end of the rope through and it "fishes" the seal into the truck and if done properly its all sealed and no need for anything else....

everything above makes no sense but I dont know how else to describe it.

2000 ford f-250 leveled off, crew cab, headlight upgrade, gauges; pyro, boost, tranny. 6637 intake. 06 lariat dash/seats/interior. DP tuned. A dash of this, a dash of that
