    Does anyone elses rear glass rattle ridicualously loud? Mine when my stereo is hitting, it rattles so much, it stereo itself sounds good inside the truck, but the rear glass vibrating is a little bad, but it really turns some heads b/c of that loud racket the glass makes. lol Do anyone have ideas about minimizing it or elminating it? Would a new seal help?

    A new seal would help. Mine use to rattle the back window, and door windows. It pushed the side glass out almost a 1/2 inch when it hit. I just left the windows down, and it was fine. For the back either leave it all the way up or all the way down. ( the "use to" is because I rolled my Jimmy:( No top anymore, or doors.)

    I had that problem when I used to have a big system. After you replace the seal, run some 1/4" closed cell foam "rope" weatherstripping inside it - it will knock down all of the rattling.

    mine rattles with the window all the way rolled up. I bump my window switch to where the rear glass just barely goes down, and no more rattle!!

    BLAZE IT UP!!
