    I want to know does anyone know where to get a new (or used) rear window channel(the one that the glass sets in). This is for a 73 blazer. Also can the tailgate be switched or modified for an electric rollup?

    Check LMC for tailgate parts.<a target="_blank" href=http://www.lmctruck.com>Click here for LMC</a> Order a catalog...its free!

    Yes you can swap to electric...its a bit spendy if you use all new parts but it can be done.

    I just replaced mine this weekend and hit the inside of the tailgate w/ rust inhibator and POR15. It is called the window sash and I got mine at the local GM dealer for less then LMC

    I just cleaned/refurbished my tailgate and both doors this past couple of weekends. I lined the bottom of my tailgate with a spray on rubber liner. Seems like water likes to get down into the seams and rot it out. Hopefully this rubber lining will help.
