you know how some of the toyota models like the 4runner and the ford bronco are able to roll down the back window where the scion hatch window would be do you think its possible to make a mod to have that roll down ?

You'll have to "build out" the hatch area. Not too mention remove the wiper motor and redesign the skeleton structure inside the hatch area.

But, if you do have the money, it is possible, though the rear hatch lines won't flow prolly.

I don't think the glass would be able to roll all the way down in the first place. I have put serious consideration into this before, and it seems like it would be more of a PITA just t do it right. Not to mention the drainage on the wallet.

what about a flip up and out that would probably be easier not as PIMP tho
That sounds cool and easier. what if you made it so the bottom folded out (in half like some astro vans) with the glass going up on an actuator. Or have the glass go up like a camper shell and the bottom fold down, like a pickup.

just get a hammer and bust out the window. then if you want it shut just get some plastic and duct tape and tape it up.
Hammer 1.59
Duct Tape 1.68
Plastic 1.99
Looking like **** when done

PriceLess......

you can save $1.59 and just use a big rock and if you buy the duct tape at wal-mart you'll get a bag for free, total savings $ 3.58 , cost of this mod, only $1.68 , lol

chris, im thinking of doing the back glass open style, like some of the GMC's, or like the snug top rear hatch :p
I've pondered that idea as well........ it seems practical too.
