this is one of the few things i liked better in the 4runner. they get the roll down rear window, rather than the hinged glass.

oh well...

I used to do it in high school riding around with the system blaring.

i dont understand why they cant make the back window go down in any other car other then the 4runner, especially the pathy. I loved that part about my 4runner.

Just remember not to do this on dusty dirt roads!

I made that mistake once, and ..cough cough... it was not fun..cough.

Ever notice at night though the third brake light is a lot brighter lol!

the two things i miss most about my 4runner (was a '92) are the roll down rear window and the tailgate.

put the two of those on my PF (and a solid rear axle) and i'd be set.

since i posted this thread in april, i road with the back open all summer up to highway speeds of 90mph with it open, and 20 mph through dirt roads with no problems, good solid window! :)

No it doesn't. Independent rear suspension.

I tried it and seemed to get exhaust fumes in the truck, but i was in town at traffic lights so the airflow may not have been sufficient.
