Subject: FTE Small - Sliding Rear Window Question

Anyone know about how much it is for a solid rear window to replace my
aftermarket slider? Mine has developed quite a rattle that can only be
fixed by holding the two inside windows (the ones that slide apart from
each other) together and thats kinda hard to do while driving. If anyone
has had to replace their window lately, I'm just wondering. Thanx if you
have any info...

Subject: FTE Small - ADMIN: Web site updates

1. 13 trucks added to pictorial section.
2. Several links sections updated.
3. Speaker installation for 1999 F150s article added to tech
article section.
4. RSAC tags updated in the BBS, classifieds and chat sections.
If you have children and content control in your web browser,
this will allow them to visit any portion of the site except
for chat which has a tag for mild slang/adult language.
I've seen enough of this in the chat that I felt it was best
to re-rate it.
5. Some portions of the BBS are faster (and some are still just
as slow and we're still working on it).
6. Server can now handle up to 20 simultanious users (chat can
handle even more, about 500). Browsing the site should be
faster during peak times. We'll need a full T1 connection
within 6 months. We've had 19% compounded monthly growth
since we started and we're projecting about 500,000 monthly
visitors within 7 months.

Are you looking for the non slider one piece glass as in factory original? If
you are anywhere near Denver I have the one they took out of my 87 Ranger and
put in the slider. You are welcome to it for free. It will probably set around
here until it gets broken anyway!
Waht year is your truck? They are different for different years.

The best thing to use on spark plugs is "dielectic tune-up grease". It's
found in most auto parts stores. Permatex makes it. Really keeps the plugs
and wires from sticking after a year or so.
