    anyone ever tried to use a truck rear window rolldown kit to make the rear side windows on a sub go down? just trying to think of my dog...
    i cant find a link for a kit but something like they sell for sport trucks for a retractable rear window.

    I dont think there is enough room in the fenders for the windows to roll down.
    I assume you have barn doors, otherwise you could roll down the tailgate window. Build some sliding side windows, like the blazers or camper shells have. :burb:

    LMC lists sliding side rear windows in their latest Suburban catalog. Pricey though, at around $500 each.

    yeah i think those kits only have like 12-14" of travel i was just thinking if you shortened the window there might be enough room

    i saw a sub with a blazer lift off roof on it one time that could be cool. but just trying to think about the dog

    sliders do seem like the way to go

    Lick My Crotch can do just that :angry1: , but thanks for the info :thumb:

    OK I thought of an idea :D
    bust/take out the rear side windows, screw in a tailgate net on each side :cool1:.
    You wont need to worry about too many nosy people looking in couse your dog will be there :thumb: :burb:

    "Prison Burb"??

    that was my second thought, i've got some security fencing. That imma make a panel for behind my front bench(just like every other B**CH, ,she dont stay in her place) but using it over the windows would look cool, kinda prison bus-like,
    probably wouldnt use netting though, 1:i dont have it, 2:too nascar-ey for me, 3:The whole prison burb thing is really growing on me...

    that would actually be cool looking, do all the windows with the fencing, i'll mock it up and get some photos

    How about van windows that pop out in the back doors. They look to be about the same size :dunno:

    nah i think there more square, and the burbs taper in on the top.

    could steel the hardware and get a glass drill bit and adapt them to the burb windows that would be cool
