Yeah alittle far,why don't you like the slideing glass.
Solid just looks much cleaner. And since its manual you have to climb in the back seat to open it. I haven't had it opened once since I got the truck.

Same here. Been trying to work out a deal with a couple members about swapping. I've maybe had mine open twice in almost 5 years

I replace my slider with solid glass soon after I got my truck. Why? There were several reasons...

I never used the slider since it's difficult to reach in open from the drivers seat.
I never cared for how the rear glass slider protruded out from the cab. The solid rear window sits nice and flush and just looks much better. Also, the one-piece glass is also a lot easier to clean and offers better visibility. I never had the issue but some have complained that the rear slider rattles over time.

Here's a couple of before and after pics.

I was able sell my factory slider and cover the cost of the solid glass. I have no regrets on the swap.

Put one in my 07 reg cab about a month ago. Got deep tint from GM 815.00. A hundred to have it installed. After a heart attack then surgery my head sweats more than normal. With the sliding back glass the air flows just right. Used to be I couldn't keep a piece of paper on the center hump, now with just the back open I can keep a lottery ticket laying anywhere.

I had Safelite Auto glass come to my work and they swapped the glass out in less than and hour. Total cost installed was around $225 but I was able to sell my slider for $100 and recoup some of the cost. There's a slight risk that they'll break the glass during removal so re-selling isn't always an option. GM gets a good buck for the factory slider, so finding someone willing to swap is the way to go.
