Alright, This basically came to me in a day dream...
Its simple.
And kinda haggard but I have a system, and plenty of crap in my truck i dont want to get ripped off.





Quick trip to ace hardware netted me.
All thread
2 C clamp things, I dont recall what exactly they are called but my parents new bed frame came with some...
2 wing nuts and 2 hex nuts and a can of black spray.

The wing nuts are so i can quickly remove it.
And that size all thread was the biggest that would fit, I didnt have the drill at the time or I would have drilled out the hole to fit a bigger thing of all thread in it.

There ya go.

If you have a factory sliding rear window, Toyota has them for cheap. You latch will be plastic.

If its aftermarket, they often used stamped steel latches and i don't know how to find that stuff.

I think mine is after martket.
And I really dont see a way to change out just the little tiny thing that the latch sticks onto

Steve: Yes, yours is aftermarket. If it was factory, it would be plastic and textured black. Yours is made of metal, and tack welded to the assemby. if yours breaks, you have to weld it back on, or buy a new Assy.

Maybe later tonight abe...

And coug, thanks for the info.
I dont really trust the latches anyway.
So even if It still latched, something like what I have on there now would be there anyway.
I think I do need some bigger allthread though, but it gets the job done

a lot of the aftermarket windows are aluminum frames and rivets. eventually, the rivet breaks or bends and the latch won't work. depending on how bad it is, you may be able to re-rivet it.

I'm almost willing to bet that the part the latch thing latches on to is riveted as well...

Haha, well I usually only do it when im not home or I park my truck in a shady neighborhood... Takes no more then 30 seconds. And I figure... 30 seconds is worth it, if it saves my truck from being stolen!

on mine, the latch attaches to the frame with screws. You could remove it..
