Ohh, I am a Junk yard Jockey! I kept my 94 Corsica alive on Junk yard parts! It is silly not to use that resource! It is a great way to get to know your vehicle, great way to spend an afternoon getting those factory extras(roof console,spoiler,tachometer...) and seeing how to take things apart before you do it on your own ride. I just pulled the Door latch assemb. as well as a rear spoiler, and some missing badges! we have about 6 ecology and or Pic-a-Part lots in my area! lots of goodies!

GM of the month Winner
The Blazer windows are different than the Suburban windows. That is why you don't see any Suburbans with sliding rear windows.

Ahh Rats.... Haha absolutely a different shape, I did not pay enough attention. I DO think they sell sliders for the suburban, i think that's where i got the idea.I want to say LMC truck, so i just assumed that GM would just use the same size window openings to save money!...Silly me, here is a link to what i saw....http://www.scribd.com/doc/87124810/2...ide-Window-Set

I've never seen a slider window for the suburban and the slider at LMC for the Blazer definitley does not look "stock" to me.

I prefer the stock look for both trucks.

Me either, I guess someone on the board has a set of sliders on his Suburban but I can't seem to locate pics,I just think it would be convenient for the rear passengers, and make other Suburban owners go "Hmmm!"...The price on LMC is quite prohibative as is most of thier stuff lol I'm good with the solid windows for now! haha!

Steel Horse Automotive

Sounds cheesy but they are actually quite solid. Worth looking into.....
