Default 1997 Regular Cab - rear window replacement

My driver side rear quarter window panel is in need of replacing. Upon further research it seems my rear window assembly has a "roped" gasket rather than the bolt-ons from the extended cab editions.

My idea was to either head to the junk yard and get a new rear window panel or get a piece of plexiglass cut to size. The more I do my research I believe it's not that easy. Do I need to replace the WHOLE rear window (left and right panels and both sliders) or is it possible to replace just 1 panel?

Thank you!

update: I called a few places and they confirmed since my back window is a 4-piece that the whole thing needs to be replaced.

That's a bummer. Is it really that hard to install a new panel in the gasket/rubber frame?
