I've got a slider I will trade to ya. That is if you have the OEM one piece window.

EDIT: Nevermind. I just noticed your signature says you have a 92. It won't fit on my truck.

get someone on the inside to gently push out and then get some fishing line or etc, and "floss" it out...in that i mean put it behind the rubber weatherstripping holding it in and move it around the window until the seal is broken

Ok, so the one in the junk yard should unbolt as well? I haven't actually looked at removing it so sorry if I sound like an idiot.

Sorry, I have the full window but I want to replace it with the sliding window because of my shell.

98+ just bolt in

83-97 uses a rubber seal that holds the window in place.

they can be tricky to remove and install. you have to start in a corner and work it out, there is several different ways to get the seal removal started. personal, i would use something plastic.
