    I got an awesome deal on two side sliding windows for my '88 Jimmy's top, but, they are from a '76 Blazer! Any chance they'll fit without a lot of modification?!? Please help! Thanks! /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    I think 76 and up are the same, but I may be wrong /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Why do you want 2 piece sliders? /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif I think The slider windows are not that hard to break in through and the one piece windows look so nice. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    AFAIK they should work as long as you got the track and all. The full top windows are a little bit bigger and don't fit in the half top frame. But a half top window fits in a full top frame (it will rattle a little)

    definitely not worth the hassle. Roll down the rear window and the drivers and passengers, and call it good.

    Of all the problems the rear sliders have, much additional weatherstripping that goes bad, and metal screws into the aluminum frames are two of the most frustrating.

    I put sliders on my truck originally, then noticed the wing window was loose. Decided to fix it, but ended up not getting ANY of the screws loose, as they were bonded to the frame, and too small for the force needed to remove them. Then of course I noticed how bad the weatherstripping looked, and how much moss grows in the channels, and how bad the lock design is, and I swapped the old non-sliders back in. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif
