Power Rear Window on a Pickup?

Hey all - i'm looking into getting either an Extended Cab pickup, or a suburban. Still up in the air.

My question is regarding the pickup. I swear I saw (a while back) a window that you could buy, to replace the the standard, or sliding rear window, with a power roll-up window. it would be activated by a switch on the dash, and when it was down (slid straight down below the window), the ENTIRE rear window would be 100% open. this would allow carrying longer wide objects, w/o having them extend past the tailgate, or out the back of the truck. plus it would be a GREAT airflow improvement for just cruising in the summertime.

I've looked and looked (google, etc...) and cannot find one. Does anyone know who makes these, if they exist? I remember seeing an install done on "Trucks!" back a few years.

ANY help would be GREATLY appreciated! thanks!

I know what you're talking about. I have seen it as well. It was an older custom mod the the window slid between the body panels of the rear of the cab. I have not seen it for a while though. There is a company called Breezer that makes a removable rear window that is either fully removed or it louvers out kind of like the side windows of an extended cab truck. You can order one of those for @$350 through Stylinconcepts.com

Thanks for your reply - that's close, but i'd LOVE to have that "powered" window, if i do decide to get a truck... Anyone else happen to know who makes these??

The "roll up/down window" is pretty cool. Wouldn't mind havin' it myself. I've seen it in magazines, car shows, photos, etc. Really unsure if anyone (company) offers a "kit" for this. Believe all the ones you and I have ever seen are the work of talented individuals. In other words they did it own thier own. Might even attempt it on my truck when I get serious about fixin it up. So unless you posses some skills, I think you are SOL for now. I could be wrong though. Thinking about it, the window does not go in between the body panels on rear of cab because its only one panel on the rear. You would have to totaly customize your interior to where you create a different back wall a few inches in (maybe). Anyways, maybe I'll send you pictures of mine when I'm done!

If I remember right, the older Suburbans have a power rear window option. I want to put a power rear window on mine, I think I'll just cut the back off a suburban of the same year (86). That way I'll have a functioning part that I don't have to play around with to get to work right. Do all the new ones have two seperate doors, or do they still make the old one piece design?

You are so right! That will make it 20 times easier than what I had invisioned. You are the man! Still alot of work but definantly would make it easier.
