In my opinion, you have the perfect amount of lift and tire size. This is exactly how I want my truck to look. Are those 17" wheels? What kind are they?

When you say pop out window what do you mean? I had one in a '79 I had years ago that flexed on both sides like a mini van window. I have never seen one like it since. It really made the truck unique.

Could you post a picture of it?

You can swap them for your fixed windows. I did. The hinge holes are already on your truck behind the rubber molding. You just need the window, latch, hinges, and molding from the donor.

it's good to know that the holes are there
but I looked at LMC Truck, and they have the windows, but not the hardware.

Edit: they have the hinges, but I don't see the latches

I am content with not having those, as they are not reproduced and they are very fragile. Just more stuff to have to worry about breaking.

I managed to rebuild mine, and put in new window seal, hinge cups and pins....had the metal parts media blasted and powdercoated (that little metal button that's on the outside and goes through the glass), and had the windows tinted....even found a set of NOS hinge covers. They look brand new now.....took a while to adjust the hinges properly, tho.
