    I believe that mine are factory made...appear to be anyway.

    They are not faded out like the front window tint is :dunno:

    They are factory tinted. And the rear window on mine is dot matrix I will call it, meaning there is no tint just black dots like older sunroofs. I have seen Blazers with clear sliding glass which only makes me believe they came that way aswell.

    If yours have the factory tint, then it can't be removed. It's made into the glass. If it's aftermarket tint, then you can remove it with a razor blade. I like mine tinted, so the "shoplifting" set can't easily see what's inside... :mad:

    I here ya brother.. after having tinted windows pretty much my entire "driving life" the thought of having clear glass makes me a little nervous.

    I just picked up a roll of 5% limo dark for the barn door windows in the back of my '90 Sub. The side windows are already dark from the factory, but the back windows are clear... I wanna keep the interior outta site and outta mind. :cool1:

    Your best bet is going to be scouring the junkyards, watching for rigs being parted out, etc. :(
