2009-2012 backglass

Has anyone ever put a 2009-2012 back glass in any previous year model s/d? In 2008or 2009 they started to "glue" in the back glasses instead of just using the weatherstripping. I have a 01 f350 crew cab that I want to put a 2012 backglass that has defrost and power slider. Before I buy the backglass Id like to know if the "glue" in style will fit properly in place of the weatherstrip backglass

I'm currently having one put in my 04. They tried to glue it in and it didn't fit properly like I wanted or sealed right. Could have been install but they're taking it out today and tomorrow and putting the weather stripping on the newer window and reinstalling it

I know it might be hard to explain but what didnt fit properly that you didnt like? Did it have a water tight seal? Let me know how the weatherstrip on the new glass works. From what I have seen the newer backglass doesnt have a frame like the older one does which would make the newer backglass thinner.

it didnt sit properly against the cab imo. and then the gap around the window with the cab looked too large (larger than the 08+ looks) ill get you some pics today when i get the truck back.

o and the rubber seal on the old window goes inside the cab also and leaves a gap at the bottom of the headliner without it.

Bumping this up from forever ago... I found a 2012 back glass and was about to buy but wanted to make sure it will mount up? Running a bead, letting it dry then another bead is the way to do it?

Yes that is correct or some of the good window installers call lay a single bead thick enough.
