I like my sliding window. If Im hauling long lumber I can shove some through the window so there isnt as much over the tailgate. Plus on those "rough night" parties it makes great ventilation without getting too cold inside

It depends how often you will use the sliding feature. If your never going to use it whats the point in having it?

thats what i was thinking. i never really used my slider. i dont put wood in the back of my truck, thats what my dads is for.

thanks to everyone who voted. most people picked slider, so im going with solid. the reason why, is because most of you probably have slider, and i want mine to be different. i dont use the function of the slider so thats just one more reason to switch.
