I need a new rear window... where to find?

Yea, so, my rear window is trashed. I'm trying to decide if it would be better just to try and get the glass replaced or to buy a whole new unit, or if that is even an option. What have you guys done when you needed new rear windows?

Yea, for the Ranger.

Two problems with Lexan, one is it scratches easy, and two I have a slider so it's not that easy to just swap it out... unless I just ditch the frame all together... which may be an option...

Not to high-jack, but where could you get a Lexan window for a Ranger rear?

I saw some Harwood stuff on Summit, but nothing that was for truck rear windows.

when i broke my rear pass side window pane i just called up a local glass repair place. they came to my house and put a whole new rear window in for $100 including installation and parts. i thought that was pretty reasonable especially since my slider was leaking anyways.

It may scratch easy, but it wont crack/shatter when a rock hits it. With you not having wheel wells.....it wouldnt be a bad idea to go with lexan.

Do a search on the net and you will find how to remove the scratches from Lexan. You need to use a heat gun. Be very, very careful not to over heat or get too close. Also do not let the hot tip fall off and hit the Lexan.
It works great as long as you go slow and let the heat effect it slowly. I haven't tried a hairdryer and don't know if it gets warm enough?
A college came up with the fix for the US Army bomb squads.
