Awesome response! I love it when the PN's are included. This will help me make the decision to do the work or do the window replacement. I'm going to calculate the cost for those parts, the tinting, and the time I assume it will take me, then figure out what I'm going to do.

Masai windows look like shit. The garrison kit is awesome and easy peasy. Do one window at a time, use a pneumatic riveter gun off amazon or harbor freight. Hand held sucks for this job or really any job.

Alternately I have some take-off Td5 rear windows that don't leak, open AND close, and are genuine LR parts...

How much, Brian?


Dan, right now, the issue is my windows will need a full rebuild. Probably a light blasting, and all new parts. I really don't see anything on them that is worth keeping. The frames have some bent spots, but are certainly usable.

Thanks so much for this. I'm about to re-do my windows (when they are pulled for the re-spray), and this list is very helpful.

I wouldn't want some BS aftermarket windows. My only complaint with the kit is that it doesn't include the double sided tape or foam (not sure what it is) that goes between the window frame and the body. Mine leak because of that. Thankfully I like in LA now, so I will never have to fix it (didn't fix it 3 years in NYC either (yes, I know I'm lazy)).

Depending on how original you want to keep the truck, you could also have your local glass shop fab you a one-piece that fits in the current hole (I assume these are available online too), and use a generic window gasket to fit.

My truck came with windows like this (I assume it was originally a panel-van). Advantages: no water-ingress ever, improved break-in resistance; Disadvantages: lack of originality and no rear ventilation (not sure how useful this is anyway)?

So, did you find something that fit?

Right now I've got duct tape dampening the rattles...it's about as attractive as the rest of the vehicle

What gaskets are they? Do you have a part #? Do you have a pic of these? I will be doing the much prolong windows and would like to get these first.
Thanks

I got the Garrison kit. Also, my windows are in very rough shape; sitting out in the weather for 21 years in wet weather; all the seals are perished and/or moldy. The bottom plastic tracks are cracked. I ordered pretty much everything for a full rebuild, in addition to the Garrison kit:


MWC7612: RUNNER WINDOW BOTTOM SLIDE DEFENDER
MWC7614: SEAL DRAUGHT RAIL -DEFENDER
MUC1008: WINDOW SEAL ROOFSIDE DEFENDER
MUC1005: FILLER STRIP WINDOW SEAL DEFENDER
MWC7617: GLAZING STRIP ROOFSIDE WINDW DEFENDER
MUC4025: RUBBER STOP SLIDE WINDOW ROOF SIDE DEFENDER
MWC7615: GLAZING STRIP REAR WINDOW

All available from RN and other sources. It adds up. I should be doing the rebuilds in the next few weeks.
