Ditto...can't stand the sliding back window. Would rather have solid glass, but I don't think this was an option that Toyota offered.

actually they are available for a cost prohibitive price of 590 the sliders are 610. That is through Toyota parts department. I also called a couple local glass shops and they were the same price, because only OEM Toyota parts are currently available. They said to wait 6 months and they will be all over for half price. I just don't want to wait because I am doing all my aftermarket stuff immediately.

Plain Rear Window

I guess we will all have to wait until someone breaks our sliders, when they break into our truck, and then have the insurance company put in a plain back window.

thats one reason. Another is it doesn't look as good as a plain window. Last it is far easier to tint a solid rear window, they come out much cleaner.

Not to mention the fact that you can't reach it from the front seat anyway....

I like my slider. I don't even noticed the bars. I have no need to tint the window as it is plenty dark enough already. I have used mine 2 or 3 times as a pass through to allow me to carry a couple of things easier. I bought rolls of 96" wide screen(Hurricane damage) that passed through the rear window nicely saving me the hassle of having to tie them down or leave them hanging out of the rear of the bed.

Now what I don't like in the back are the damn headrests that block my view, but I can deal with it. Rather have them for my passengers than not have them at all. I mainly use my side view mirrors anyway.

^ Ya the headrest are a bitch. They block alot. Took me a bit to get used to it, and how to look around em, i dont even notice them anymore.

I wouldnt mind making the rear sliding glass electric, since i use it all the time.
And like MASTER CHIEF said, its useful as a pass through...seeing as we got short beds it could come in handy.

A roll down rear window like they have on the Tundras would be sweet.
...with a rear window defroster. There's a lot of little touches like that that Toyota could have put on the Taco for which I would have gladly paid extra. They go "bare bones" in some places you would think they wouldn't while they do stupid stuff like putting 110AC in the bed or 13 cup holders in the double cab. :wtf:

I have gone out of my way to get sliding rear windows on my trucks in the past.

I agree that solid glass looks better but I don't see the sliders as any real issue.

What I do like is the ability to move 12 plus foot lumber with a small short bed truck.
