    My 91 Burb needs a little patch work at the top of the rear, side windows. I assumed all Burbs (73 to 91) had the same roofs. I was looking at a 74 Burb today and notice the roof was different. What year rear, side window openings and roof lines match my 91?

    Thanks,

    Eric M.

    Whats different about it? They should all be the same from 73 - 91 cause all those years of rigs have the same exact window.

    I noticed there was no body line above the window on the 73. Also, the window gasket is different. I'm not sure if the window is different of if the sheetmetal at the window opening is a different shape for the different gasket, I just noticed that the window gasket was different and there was no body line at the roof.

    I noticed in a catalog that offers replacement windows that the gasket for the 73 is different than the others /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    Let me rephrase that LMC offers a sliding side window for suburbans and you need to order a gasket with the window for installation, except it states that on the 73 you need to use the original gasket. Dont know if this helps but theres something different. /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif

    Eric, on that body line, I know on my 75 burb, there is NO line(more like a roll in the body shape)and on my dads 81 body there is a sharp line. But I do know the windows interchange as I have 91 windows and 84 seals in my 75 body /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    OK. So, it sounds like the only difference is the body line.
    Thanks,

    Oh, and about that Power Wagon, well, b

    The roofs arent all the same 73-91. They changed up some stuff, cant remember off hand but I do know there are differences. Not alot of help I know. I want to say its just cosmetic.
