Default Sliding rear window 2002

I have a '02 ext cab with sliding rear window with factory privacy tint but the window itself is leaking I'm pretty sure it's from the seal on the glass and not leaking through any window hinges or whatever. It rained really hard yesterday and I noticed right above my window the headliner was soaked, so basically I'd like to trade MY sliding rear window (that I think just needs to be resealed) for a 1-piece window. I believe this is a good deal as the sliding rear windows tend to be desirable around here.. I don't like them though. So if anyone in the TEXAS area has a 1 piece window that will fit my truck, let's trade? Or if anyone has a 1- piece they'd sell, please let me know.

And hardly any was wet where the brake light is in the inside of the cab, it was all on the driver side toward the corner, maybe a foot and a half long, SOAKED. I mean dripping water! I hate it, so all help is appreciated..

if you pull off your 3rd brake light you will see that if water gets in there it can run to either side of the truck depending on hows it is parked. this happened to my old 2002 ranger. I too thought it was the window but i replaced the 3rd brake light and it was fixed.

it is a common problem. google it
