    I'm really tired of slow windows in my doors and tailgate. Anybody ever convert either to manual?

    For the pain it would be to gather all the parts to convert to manual, you can rebuild your power windows. A little cleaning and lube works wonders, and doesn't require much disassembly.

    I did it. It wasn't hard and it was probably the best mod I did to my truck. My driverside regulator had been ripped off the door mounts and poorly welded together. Well the previous owner(my brother) said f!$k it and just put a 2x4 in there to support the window and the broken regulator just rattled in there. So I couldn't even roll the driver's window down! It royally sucked!

    I wouldn't change mine....Can't stand leaning over to roll down the passenger window. Mine were really ssssllllllooooww,and what I did was clean all the moving parts then grease everything up. They are alot faster now!

    Grease up the guts! I did my tailgate recently, and saw a world of difference. It's much faster and quieter. Doing the doors this weekend.

    A little lube goes a long way!

    have you tried useing spray silicon on all the wheater stripping it sound simple but makes a world of difference. A falla i work with was ready put in a new window motor in when i suggested this and that was all it needed.
