    The rear window in my Blazer is scratched pretty bad, and I was looking around for a replacement, but with it already tinted like the side windows on the removable top (not film tint).

    Anybody know if a company makes this?

    Thanks in advance for any info.

    You are looking for a lamenated window then. Probably GM is going to be the only place that carries lamenated windows, maybe someone like "Don's Mobile Glass" but you will have to check. Why would you not want film? Replace your weather striping in the tailgate and it will be fine. I have 4 layers of film on my back window and no problems with it wanting to peal off.

    Ouch... don't want to spend that much on a rear window. I'll just pick one up at the local yard, replace the weatherstripping on the tailgate and slap on some film tint.

    Thanks for the info/help.

    Cheyv suty has them for $109.95 for 73-75 and 89.95 for 76 - 87. I would give you the exact link, but thee website doesn't give an individual link for each product. the part # for the 73- 75 is 70-346, and the # for the 76 - 87 is 70-348. here is the link to there site Chevy Duty Online Store . if your scroll down the right side you can find the year for your blazer and then click on the link. that will open up a submenu and you can scroll down to back glass and it will open the page for those. The part your looking for is at the bottom right of the first page under the back glass section. Hope this helps, and also hope you didn't buy something expensive already.

    you can also just do a search for the part in the upper right hand corner. I forgot about that option.

    The "built-in tint" windows are laminated and crack really easy. Not good since they are $$$. I used a new clear window (<$100) and had tint film applied to the inside. I put in new inner and outer weatherstripping at the same time. It looks like the outside will scratch up before the film does.

    if I am correct laminated glass is like your front windshield and does not crack that easily but some rear windows are tempered and they do crack and the fall to pieces just like the side windows...Just my two cents
