yes solid window are avail. they were usually on the standard cab earl gens..but fair warning if you try to get one out of a junk yard don't do it. the glass is epoxyed in to the seam on the truck. you'll just end up breaking the window (i've tried)

call a glass store and they can do it..they make a gasket that will allow to solid window to be used in the seal, off your slider..

i tint all my cars with double 5% all around and either 15% or 5% down the whole windshield, so i want to avoid having to retint the rear window 2 layers. i like dark

maybe he can ship me a new glass? how much just for the part?

Ill post pics in a few of my other cars with the tint

And windshield tint isn't legal in any state, unless u have a perscription as you said. I don't get stopped that much so its not worth it to try and get a perscription for me

my explorer (unfinished project lol)

explorer has 5% on the w/s with a 5% strip on top of that, with double 5% all around the rest. Mini is the same, but 15% on the whole w/s instead of 5%.







my boys Yukon with double 5% all around and 15% on the w/s as well
