    If your asking about sliders for the side windows of the top we are all out of luck.I was looking for them about half a year ago and found a company who made them from info. on the old Blazer-Net.I looked at their web site and found local distributers.Well to make it short they stopped production due to lack of demand.What sucks is I can't remember the name of the company.I believe Steve Chin(a member on this board)Gave me the info.maybe he can remember the company's name.Sorry.

    C. R. Laurence was the company's name. The last time one of us contacted them, they said they weren't even interested in making a batch of the windows up (even if we got a dozen or more orders up for them). Maybe they have changed their minds, but I won't hold my breath.

    Some early Blazers came with Sliding glass, so you might be able to find a used top with the sliding glass, or you might be able to take them out of a cracked top. I never made a comparison, but I think that the second generation Blazers had the same size window, and a lot more of them had sliding windows. You might want to look into getting the sliding glass out of a 73-91. Has anyone ever tried?

    I got a set of sliders on my 75 topper, I will trade if you have solid glass in good shape.

    Having just kind of glanced at the second generation side windows, my impression is that the windowas are neither the same shape nor the same size as the first generation side windows. I'm also reasonably sure that the sliders that have been seen on Blazers are all aftermarket windows.

    Dune Goon, you say you have frames? That means that you have broken sliders now? A good glass shop should be able to put new glass into the frames if that is the case. A correct first generation window has no frame and is held in the top by a rubber gasket in the same manner as the front and rear windows are held in...
