hello
i have a 87 short fleet and need to replace the drivers door glass.
is the glass the same for 73-87 ?
i see a certain catalog separates 73-80 and 81-87
i am looking in junk yards and many times the staff is not sure of year compatibility.

also are there any particular quirks to installation or is it basically straight forward?
any good articles or videos on line someplace?

thanks

The glass fits 81-87 and up to 91 on suburban and crew cabs. The vent glass assembly has to come out of the door the rest is pretty straight forward.

One piece windows are available.

The regulators changed between the years. The vent windows had 3 designs or more. Unless you swap vent, glass and regulator, stick to the two separate year groups.

Wow! Window power upgrades! A great Christmas update!
