Rear Window Weatherstripping

I have a leak on my rear window which is a manual slider. There has been water collecting under the rear passenger side plastic door sill cover. I finally ripped out everything from the back of my truck. Nothing to do with the story but the guy who owned the truck before me spilled a bag of grass seed back there and didn't clean it up very good so needless to say, i had a lawn growing back there with all the moisture. I removed the rear window and cleaned out all the dirt and mold and stuff from the weatherstripping. The guy who had it before me obviously has replaced it before because there was black silicone of some sort all over it. It think it has been sitting back there in that weatherstripping and has started coming in through the body seal where the two pieces of body are pinch welded together. I am going to put some seam sealer on that seam and install a new weatherstrip. Sorry for the long post but my question is, have any of you purchased a new seal for your rear window? From the dealer they want $207 for the seal, but the seal for a solid rear window is only $67. I can damn near get a whole new rear window for 200 bucks. I have found them on other websites rather than ford and they are way cheaper but they don't say if they are for a slider or not. Will the solid window seal fit the slider? Again sorry for the long post. Thanks guys and i love the site!

Yes, you can remove and replace the slider window with a solid back window. Same exact size. I've considered doing this replacement to mine, but it hasn't started to leak.

Thanks for the reply. My window is fine, i don't want to replace it with a solid window. My question is can i use the weatherstripping for a solid rear window ($67) on a sliding rear window, rather than buying sliding rear window weatherstripping ($207)? Thanks
