Average cost of one piece rear window?

After 11 years, my slider has finally started leaking. I have a tonneau cover, and can't think of a time I have ever used the sliding rear window anyway. I would like to replace with a solid rear window. Has anyone had a solid rear window replaced lately? How much did you end up paying to have it done? I believe the frame is cracked, so an entire replacement is what I am wanting to do. No silicone suggestions please..,,,,98

A glass shop may be where you have to get one. Or a salvage yard for a used one. I replaced my solid glass with a slider that I bought from Western Auto when they sold auto parts and it was inexpensive, around $50 as I remember. I reused the factory seal as I remember. This was in a 86 F150.

I found a solid glass for my truck at a local bone yard and paid $100, then paid a local auto glass shop $75 to put it in. They can be a real pain to install.

The problem with the sliding glass frames, is that they are plastic. They get overtightened and brake just to the passenger side of the third light.
That is where I've seen them all leak. I've tried several times to stop the leak on both F150's. But the only way is to get a new frame, or a solid back glass. IMO

Back when I had my '99 I traded my solid for a slider for free with a guy from out of state. We each just paid the respective shipping charges. Not too big of a deal to swap out and seal. Be careful with the bolts that hold it in though, they sure break easy.
