replacement of a window in some cases req. a heavy duty rivit gun ,you might find a totaled truck somplace an buy husk only with window ,transfer your inside cover panel, lock , I think it would be easyer' to do door pins than to replace the window of corse you may have to paint door if you cant find same color ,depends on how easy the window is to remove and replace a husk can run around $65. up to$150 depending on car,junk yards can cross ref for you ,but thats rather a newer truck, if you can remove door panel with uot breaking and broken window is easy to remove then find window, from wreck call around (A little foot work )

Check with your local salvage yards to determine availability of the glass.Several model years may use the same part. No idea on pricing. Be prepared to tear into the door and trim panel for replacement. Look at the fasteners and have a good selection of hand tools to complete the task. You can borrow, rent or purchase if need be. Some windows are riveted in place on the regulator and some are simply bolted in.(I've done both) Get advice from someone you trust who has experience as well. This is an entirely doable task. Exercise patience and common sense
